The Casper Planetarium shows movies such as From Earth to the Universe in its dome theater.
Among some 20 attractions in downtown’s First Thursday Art Walk are classic galleries to visit, plus henna tattoos, belly dancing, beer tasting, and a scavenger hunt.
At Racca’s, opt for the Del Re pizza with mozzarella, truffle cream spread, mushrooms, and prosciutto. Wyoming’s first certified Napoletana pizzeria shares a nearly 100-year-old former fruit warehouse with Art 321, the gallery of the Casper Artists’ Guild.
