If you're visiting the Eastern Sierra or Death Valley, the Visitor Center is the place to start. My favorite thing is a huge relief map showing the area in detail. The staff is knowledgable and helpful. There are a number of interesting, unique things for sale at the little store inside.
There can be long lines for wilderness permits, so come early and be prepared to wait.
