CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The new $13 million Southeast Wyoming Welcome Center along Interstate 25 is open to the public.
KGWN-TV in Cheyenne reports state tourism officials officially unveiled the center at the new High Plains Road exit near the Colorado border Friday. That particular passage into Wyoming is used by three times more visitors than any other, making it a priority to upgrade the welcome center.
The 27,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building not only serves as a welcome center but also as the new home of the Wyoming Office of Tourism.
Alan Dubberley, deputy director of Wyoming Tourism, says "we've got visitors from all over the country that are saying wonderful things about it so far, so we're really excited about the initial reaction."
