No, landlords are not a threat here; but let's face it, looking for a good place to call home for the next six months or so can be overwhelming. We're not promising the moon, but scrape off some of that burden by keeping these things in mind:
Rundown of Your Options
People come and look for rental properties here with the intention of staying for the long haul or for the next few months (or however long their job takes). Thus, rental options here range from mobile homes and apartment complexes to single, detached houses. If you're okay with the idea of having a housemate, perhaps you can take on the offers of some renters to share a rental apartment.
Green River also serves as a bedroom community for Rock Springs, which should compel you to act fast if you're eyeing a specific schedule to transfer here. At least two months of hunting should result in a list of house rentals in Green River you'd be proud to call home.
Have This in Your Bag
If you've been renting in the past, expect the usual requirements. Have a picture ID, employment verification or latest pay stub, and reference from your previous landlord on hand. Additionally, you might have to pay and go through a credit check before landlords take you seriously as an applicant.
Butteswide open spacesand the majestic river nourishing everything in its trail. It would seem like that's all there is to this city. However, a tour of its different neighborhoods could present you with a nice variation. Here's a look at this city's different areas to help you decide where you should settle.
City Center: A community of single detached houses and mobile homes, this neighborhood is hardly the party you would expect from a city center. Located along I-80, this area has the Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge in its vicinity.
Purple Sage: If you're going to live in this neighborhood, it's going to be a toss between dwelling in a mobile home or single detached houses since those are pretty much the options in Purple Sage. This area is also home to Star Twin Theatre and Smith's.
McKinnon / Washam: Setting up camp in this neighborhood will have you living in a place near Castle Rock Medical Center, Clearview Bowling Center, and Green River Recreation Center. People tasked to f i nd an apartment in this area will discover that single detached homes dominate this neighborhood, although there are a few apartment complexes and mobile homes in the mix as well. This is not a walkable area so your car's going to be your best buddy here.
Hitching Post Dr / Bridger Dr: Small apartment buildings and single detached homes are the common sight in this neighborhood. The most walkable area in the city, this neighborhood will put you minutes away from Green River United Bowling.
Trona ore mining is giving Green River a well-oiled economy. Mining companies are just some of the biggest employers in this side of Wyoming and the reason why some people continue to flock to the area. The mines are operated by companies like Solvay Minerals Inc., OCI Wyoming LP, Tata Chemicals Ltd, and FMC Corporation. Additionally, the Green River Basin holds large natural gas and oil shale reserves. However, drilling the area for black gold is hindered due to the high cost of extraction. But such sentiment could change anytime soon with the country's relentless demand for energy. And how would you like to be right here when that happens?
If you're used to big city lights, forget that lifestyle. Let Mother Nature and community-organized recreation spoil you senseless instead. Here are a couple of things you can assimilate into your daily living:
The crown jewel of Green River park system, The Expedition Island Park (yes, the place where good 'ol John started his adventures), has the North Channel Tubing Projects and Whitewater Park, where locals and tourists get to test their water sports skills. There's an area available for kayaking, swimming, and canoeing.
How about trying your luck and tossing in a line at some of Green River's popular fishing spot? You never knowyou could be the one to bait a monster at the Flaming Gorge or Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge--or not, cuz you're too busy taking in the beauty of your surroundings to mind the fishing rig.
If you want to get close with wildlife, Green River is teeming with it. It's also the home of the best hunting grounds. You can ask for more information on this at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department if going for the big one is your cup of tea.
Of course, community events are a vital part of this city. Some of the events that can have residents bubbling with excitement are The Annual Cajun Crawfish Boil and The Annual Crystal Classic Ice Sculpting Competition.
Bikers, rejoice! Green River Bike Park is close enough for you to practice some moves. In addition, the city has many trails designed especially for non-motorized vehicles. Yup, horseback riding is an option in these trails too! And yeah, if a good pair of shoes is your vehicle of choice, you can also put that to good use at the Wilkins Peak Trail System.
