There's no place like Laradise. Whether it's a stroll Downtown or a hike in Vedauwoo, a deep dive into space at the University of Wyoming Planetarium, or catching the game at the War, Laramie's offerings make her a paradise for those who call it home (yes, hence the nickname, Laradise.)

Laramie is also a paradise for your tastebuds. Downtown Laramie hosts numerous mouthwatering restaurants to satiate the hungriest of customers. A few of our town's restaurants have even been featured on Food Network's show, 'Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!' Many of those restaurants will be featured at Laramie's favorite upcoming food festival, 'Taste of Laradise.'

What's all the fuss about TOL? Well, it's a veritable party for your tastebuds. Here's a taste of what's happening at Taste of Laradise:

"While Tasters peruse Downtown Laradise, they receive exclusive access to cocktails, beer, and nonalcoholic beverages in a souvenir cup; delectable food specials at downtown's unique restaurants; and mind-blowing discounts at premier shops and businesses. Tasters earn raffle tickets throughout the event by visiting participating locations and taking advantage of the shopping and dining specials offered. The event culminates in a raffle of fabulous prize baskets, including the Grand Prize: a $2,000 custom travel package!"

  • 3rd Street Bar
  • Accomplice Beer Company
  • Alibi Woodfire Pizza
