Have you ever visited the Wyoming Welcome Center? If you already live here and aren't passing through on Interstate 25, you probably haven't stopped at the beautifully landscaped Center at College Drive and I-25.

Until two this afternoon, the Wyoming Welcome Center is hosting an open house to celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week. Refreshments will be served and items given away according to the Wyoming Travel and Tourism facebook page. Here's a great opportunity to experience what a lot of the tourists feel when they visit our Cowboy State.

Tourism is one of the leading industries in Wyoming so welcoming visitors properly is very important to our economy. Also informing outsiders about all of the recreational and educational opportunities across the state can give communities a financial boost.

Feel like a tourist, stop by the Wyoming Welcome Center and get a fresh perspective on our area.
