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.

We were driving from DC to Charlottesville and decided to take a break at Front Royal, heading for the historic downtown area. So our logical first stop was the Visitor Center. We were greeted by Don, one of the volunteer staff there, who couldn't have been more helpful. He gave us all the information we could possibly want, not just... More

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

Open Sunday, with restrooms. Extremely well stocked with travel brochures from near and far in Virginia. Congenially staffed.
