  • The trading post has a ton of really cool and unique gifts from Colorado and the Southwest. They have a nice selection of Native American crafts. There's also a restaurant, so you can grab a bite to eat or a coffee. Allison M. was exceptionally helpful in assisting me in finding unique gifts for my wife and daughter. Enjoy!
  • This was a really cool little place. Actually it wasn't that little and it had a lot of variety. There are lots of souvenirs and many nice leather goods and other art pieces. The turquoise was beautiful. There is also a nice little snack bar / restaurant that had decent food and the prices weren't bad. There was also a little ice cream and coffee place too. The outside seating area was really nice with plenty of shade and nice scenery. I believe there are also a few little nature trails around it but we didn't check those out because we had been walking so much the rest of the day. It was definitely a nice little resting spot after we had already walked eight or nine miles.
  • Nice little building tucked in the Garden of the Gods. Cozy gift shop that I spent way too much time in! We also stopped to eat here and had buffalo burgers as well as some ice cream. A very nice little place to stop and check out or grab a bite to eat. Staff was super helpful and friendly!
  • There is a lot of diversity packed into this store! Everything from Ice Cream to Coffee to freshly made fudge to Colorado memorabilia and of course the obligatory tourist attire selection. My whole family had a fun time browsing this store after we went through Garden of the Gods, easily finding things of interest for everyone.
  • What wonderful things out Lord has made, loved my trip via Jeep, saw so much breathtaking beauty! I will be sure to come back again. Trading Post was nice after a long ride!
