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.

Travelling in 33 States, my wife, grandson and I have been to dozens of visitors' centres and whilst they have all been, almost without exception, very helpful, this one is amongst the best. The staff greeted us very warmly, showed real interest as to our plans and gave us maps and information to help us on our way. This is... More

The people at the visitor center are always very helpful and friendly. The walls are lined with brochures of area sights, restuarants, hotels, wineries, and B&B's. Gift items are available to help the visitor remember the highlights of the visit.

The woman at the front desk was informative, marking places on the map for me to go and telling me about the Civil War history. She was also very friendly and polite while dealing with a man that was lost and taking his frustration out on her. The visitor's center has some keychains, postcards, hoodies, and a penny smasher machine.... More
