WyomingIn some ways still part of the unsettled West, Wyoming is the 10th largest by area and, while still the least populous state in the U.S., Wyoming remains one of the cheapest places to live in the lower 48.

Basically a great plateau dissected by the Rocky Mountains, the state has a rural economy based mainly on mining - followed by agriculture, cattle ranching, and tourism - with Wyoming residents enjoying a lenient tax structure including no personal income tax, capital gains tax, and corporate income taxes.

By recent estimates, more than six million people a year - looking for outdoor adventure and wide open scenic vistas - visit the state's many national parks, with half that number accounting for annual visits to Yellowstone National Park. Other key attractions include Grand Teton National Park, Devil’s Tower National Monument, and Fossil Butte National Monument.
