Life and Times of WLM

Terrific Torrington

OK, I was searching for a superlative with a “t”… 🙂 We were in Torrington this past week for our annual Wyoming Job’s Daughters conference. What a time we had! Between catching up with folks from around the state, we enjoyed a very hospitable reception from the community!

The staff at Eastern Wyoming College (EWC) were very kind, and their custodial staff was top notch! They constantly asked if we needed assistance of any kind, and they even saved my reusable signs after we left a few behind by accident! I was very impressed also by their librarian — she allowed me to rearrange tables and clear off displays for our competitions on Thursday morning — and then she did the major share of setting it all back up again while I attempted to clean up (obviously, I failed some by the fact I left signs behind…) 🙂 The facility was excellent, and our 200+ attendees had a wonderful time. Bravo EWC!!!

My husband, Levi, and I went around town, visiting friends (like Carol over at Adorn, and Rob McIntosh at D&B Fine Furniture) and meeting new friends (like Ben and Bill over at Ben’s Diner, the owner of The Bucking Horse Steakhouse & Lounge, the wonderful staff at Western Mall and the owner of Brighter Side of Life gift shop). What nice people live in this town — friendly and ready with a smile!

So here are some of my personal recommendations for your next trip through Torrington…

Ben’s Diner — AMAZING burgers!!! I had the Aloha burger, with onions and grilled pineapple…my husband had the bacon burger, and we both agreed it was top notch. A definite stop!

Wine Time — Great selection and service!

The Bucking Horse Steak House & Lounge — We were there with a party, and enjoyed a great meal and drinks. The staff was very friendly and outgoing, and the view is to DIE FOR. Honestly — BEAUTIFUL view to match some great food! I definitely recommend this one!

Shopping: Adorn (a neat and colorful selection of clothes to fit many tastes); Western Mall (for cowgirl chic but also home decor, jewelry, and more!); D&B Fine Furniture for a great selection in home decor; The Brighter Side of Life gift shop (fun atmosphere and adorable gifts!).

Just a selection to start with — There are many more shops and restaurants to choose from, and you can find more selections at the Goshen County Chamber’s website:

Thanks Torrington for a great trip — we appreciate your hospitality!

Until next time — we’re exploring Wyoming!
