Evanston, Wyoming: Porter's Liquor And Fireworks (Gone)

One of the more intriguing specialty shops in America. Posing under the big "Liquor and Fireworks" sign across the storefront was fun. Abandoned the liquor business in 2023; now just another fireworks store.

I-80 exit 3. Drive south, then immediately turn right onto Prospector Drive. The store is at the end of the street, on the left. Visible from the freeway.
