Just ask anyone what you are looking for and they will find it for you. We wanted a nice place to dine on the inter-coastal waterway and they gave us several options and maps. Worth a stop for coupons also.

Was greeted immediately upon entering the center, even though there were already others there. Staff was very friendly and helpful (as were other non-first time visitors!) Answered questions and were knowledgeable about local attractions and eateries. Recommend stopping by to get free maps and coupons!

Staff were nice & there are 2-3 walls of coupons for everything! The ladies provided information, maps that would help for the various things we were asking & even searched for a brochure in the back that we were needing. Very helpful & would recommend visiting on on your 1st day if possible.

It was just an average trip but nothing exciting to me. We stayed at beachside resort and it was a disaster. The advertising made it seem clean and comfortable. It was the complete opposite.

We stopped by to get a few coupons and I was excited to see all the pamphlets and coupon books. The ladies were very nice. And I got a coupon for free gumbo. Can't beat that!

Nice folks...very helpful. provided brochures and a coupon book for use while at the beach. Unless you've been here before, you would be wise to stop in and talk with them.
