Fun Places To Go In Gillette
Gillette, Wyoming is a small city of about 30,000 people. Many students complain about the agony of boredom. So, what exactly are things to do in Gillette? Is there anything to save our souls?
“Hang out with friends at their house is fun for me,” senior Camila Ortiz said. “We have the freedom to basically do whatever we want.”
“I go to the taco truck right next to The Coop,” senior Lisa Safora said. “I go eat with my boyfriend in the car at the Camplex and chill there.”
“Go bowling,” junior Annalecia Brodie said. “Camel lanes is a place I would recommend going to. My friends and I go to the park and walk around with each other.”
“Mac and Roonies is fun,” sophomore Karissa Curtiss said. “My favorite game is Fruit Ninja or Deal Or No Deal. We also drive around, go to the movies. Something really entertaining I enjoy is going to Skateland. The pool and the lake are available too.”
“I like taking my kids to the recreation center and getting my swim on,” Ceramics teacher Jason Linduska said. “There’s also this challenge called 30 parks in 30 days. You pick one park in town and you play at that park for an hour. After an hour, you call it a day and the next day you go to a different park, until you hit 30 parks in 30 days.”
“You can drive around,” sophomore Emily Alvarado said. “If you have money, you can go to the movie theater. There is bowling at Frontier Lanes and the recreation center has things going on.”
“There are two different escape rooms here in town if you’re looking for fun,” sophomore Cole Sorenson said. “Most of the water activities at the recreation center are pretty fun during the summer. We also have a skate park and I think the 4th of July is a really fun day just in general because of the parade and the activities going on at the Bicentennial Park. In the winter, there is ice skating as well.”
What do you think? Is there really much to do in Gillette? Finding things could be hard, but as long as you look around and have friends with the same common interests, it should be pretty easy to find things to do other than party.
