The welcome center is a must stop on your vacation. The ladies welcomed us the moment we walked in the door. They were very informative and made recommendations based on our needs. Gave coupons for certain events. Thank you Gayle for helping us out.

Helpful staff and lots of brochures will help you plan your vacation while staying in the area. They can recommend their favorite restaurants and give you tips on what foods you need to try while here.

Great interior decorations. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very good explaining the area and gave good directions. Be sure to pick up a brochure on Joe Patti"s in Pensacola. If you wan to buy fresh seafood, this is the place.

This is one of the best welcome centers I have ever visited. Useful information, maps and brochures are everywhere and the staff is absolutely superb.

I like to stop here on our first day in town for vacation. It is a great source for info on events for the week & the staff is very helpful in answering our questions. They also have a wide array of coupons and discounts for area attractions and restaurants.

This was a one stop place for information on places to eat, and things to see and do. The staff was very helpful and provided us with maps of the area as well as coupon books for various activities and restaurants. This is a great place to start your time in Orange Beach.
