The Goshen County indoor arena and Rendezvous Center is the host site of many events throughout the year and youth baseball and softball games fill the summer evenings in the County. The area is known for its hunting and fishing, with plentiful antelope, mule deer, white tail deer, wild turkeys, pheasants, ducks, and geese that populate the area, in addition to access to great fishing.
In addition to a low cost of living, the area also enjoys mild seasons year-round. The area typically escapes the severe winter storms that hit surrounding areas.

The Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage line, the Oregon, Mormon, and California trails as well as the Pony Express all run through Goshen County. Nearby, Ft.
