Rawlins is located along Interstate 80 in south-central Wyoming, midway between Cheyenne and Rock Springs. Rawlins is surrounded by outdoor recreation of all kinds including hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting and fishing. One of America's best known trout streams, the North Platte River, is just a few miles from town.

Rawlins is a town with a rich history. The late 1800's saw a large amount of outlaw activity that culminated in the lynching of the area's most notorious outlaw, "Big Nose" George Parrot. Rawlins' biggest attraction, the Wyoming Frontier Prison, was used as the state penitentiary until 1981. Today it is on the National Register of Historic Places and visitors can tour the cellblocks and the old gas chamber used to execute prisoners.
