We were given a map by a woman who drew on it with incorrected information and bad advice. She was not enthusiastic or welcoming

Yes you should stop but don't expect much. They have VERY FEW brochures and maps. The only positive was the young lady they had behind the desk, obviously a native and knew her area but she did not have much material. Chamber really needs to invest some money in this building. No Bathroom facilities, handicap facilities well hidden. they are... More

We were heading from Ft. Myers to Miam and decided to stop here. There was room for our RV so we stopped for a break. The lady at the counter was helpful.

That a welcome center would be on tripadvisor . Anyway, I wasn't expecting much when we stopped here. Used the toilet (they have just one) & ate our picnic lunch at one of the picnic tables.

This is the worst visitor centre I have ever been to. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. There weren't even maps to give bearings. Only one bathroom stall, so a long lineup. The Chamber of Commerce isn't getting value for money with the staff it hired. One star is generous for this place.

Well, we stopped back again this year (5/2013) to say hello to the people running it and there for the past 3 years (2010 - 2012), and much to our disappointment Kathy is no longer there and the place has changed. The person there was still helpful and kind, but certainly not the same atmosphere as before.
