“The Visitor Center is so well thought out and unexpected with a mix of high tech and old school taxidermy – Love it! Friendly Staff! [What did you like best?] Animals, Traveling Continents, Spinning Wheel of a year of photos. All Amazing! Maybe the finest visitor center we’ve ever visited. Kudos!”

“I travel nationwide and worldwide as a radio journalist and spend much time at national parks and their gift stores. I have discovered that this gift store (at Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center in Colorado Springs) is the finest one for quality of merchandise, maintaining an appropriate theme for the area it represents, considerate personnel, even appropriate background music and magnificent picture windows with a view, etc. I rate it THE BEST NATIONWIDE!”

“We just visited New Orleans last week and hit 100’s of shops. None were as creative in gifts or had the affordable prices. Thanks!”

"Today was an absolutely magical day. There were 9 of us on a tour with Pecos. This is not your typical group. The 5 men of the group met in the Air Force over 30 years ago and share a strong bond, as well as a passion for the game of golf. These men, and their brides, live all over the country: Tennessee, Idaho, Georgia, and Arizona. Five years ago we all decided to get together for one week a year to not only golf as much as possible, but to nurture our long standing friendship. This year the Debauchery tour descended on Colorado Springs. We topped off our trip with our jeep tour with Pecos. Since we were not present at any couple's weddings, one couple in our group surprised the rest of us with vow renewals in your park. Pecos made this experience unforgettable with his knowledge, his humor, and his huge heart. We will never forget this day for sure, but Pecos made it extraordinary. As Pecos so eloquently put it, "Today was a God thing." Thank you so much."
