Located in an adorable train station building in downtown "old" Front Royal, the Visitor's Center offers more than materials on the local area. So if you are on your way to various points north, south, east and west, you can find brochures and helpful info on places probably in a 250 mile radius! Wish they had promoted more of the... More

We were in town for a brief stop and just checked in to see what might be in the local vicinity. The staff at the center were exceptionally helpful in sorting out places to visit and made a great recommendation on a nearby place to eat. Very friendly.

Our first stop in Front Royal was the Visitor’s Center. They used the old train station in the middle of town on Main Street for their center. It was full of things to do and information on area attractions. The people there were so friendly and helpful. Make it your first stop too!

Staff was friendly and helpful, actually stated they were happy to have us there. We were given maps and brochures to help us plan our trip through Skyline Drive.

This visitor's center is right downtown in Front Royal--you probably will want to stop here if you're interested in looking around the city. I suspect the visitor's center is highly rated, since there isn't a choice on tripadvisor for the downtown area of Front Royal. I picked up an interesting brochure describing a walking tour of the historic houses of... More

Nice 'senior' staff with good sense of humor (it IS early in the season, I guess). Gave us maps and lots of information.

Just your average visitor center. You can easily get the information you are looking for and check out the old train.

I picked up two locally-published guidebooks on area trails and hikes. Visitor centers are perfect for that kind of knowledge and the two gentlemen working the day I visited shared a few good stories as well.
