Platte County is served by several major highways, including Interstate 25, Wyoming's only north-south interstate and U.S.
Highway 26, a major east-west artery. In addition, Wyoming State Highway 34 runs from central Platte County to U.S. Highway
30, just north of Laramie, and Wyoming State Highway 270 connects Guernsey and Hartville with U.S. Highway 18/20, another
major east-west highway.
Our five communities are roughly three hours from Denver International airport, one of the nation's busiest commercial airports,
and smaller airports in Cheyenne and Casper are roughly an hour by automobile.
We are also within 90 minutes of four colleges and universities. The University of Wyoming, Wyoming's only four year college,
is just 80 miles from Wheatland, while smaller community colleges in Casper, Torrington and Cheyenne are within an hour
of most of our residents.
For recreation, we are home to two of the premier state parks, Glendo State Park near Glendo, and Guernsey State Park near
Guernsey and Hartville. Ft. Laramie National Historic Site is less than a half an hour from Guernsey. Devil's Tower, our
nation's first national monument, is just a couple hours north of Wheatland, and Yellowstone National Park, our nation's
first national park, is about six hours by automobile from Platte County. Mt. Rushmore National
Memorial and the Black Hills of Wyoming and South Dakota are about 3 hours drive north.
