Gillette, Wyoming, nestled between the Bighorn Mountains in the west and the Black Hills to the east, is a little town with a big energy impact. Called the Energy Capital of the World, Gillette supplies the U.S. with about 35% of its coal. The town started as a railroad terminal, and even today visitors can see coal trains dotting the plains and mountains. Like the rest of the state, Gillette draws visitors looking to experience outdoor adventure. This is a city focused on recreation, from rodeo events to hunting and fishing. Gillette is also home to the CAM-PLEX Event Center, which has an NHL-size ice rink and motocross facilities. Convenient to Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower National Monument, Gillette is the perfect place to book a hotel for a daytrip into the wilderness.
