“a small gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The woman who helped us at the center offered several good ideas for restaurants and activities. Her passion for the area was obvious and she gave clear directions to the suggested locations. She was interested in determining what our interests were and came up with possibilities based on those.

“Get directions to a sweet retreat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

While visiting Williamsport, pick up the information on Purity Candy. Its not far, near Clyde Pealings Reptile Land. Just a short distance from Reptile land on Rt. 15 is a fantastic little Chocolate factory. Yes, sir, chocolate of all shapes and sizes. Specialties for each holiday. Be sure to get lots of special Christmas treats.

“Excellent Help!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

We followed the advice of a previous reviewer and were glad that we did. We received wonderful and cheerful help, and excellent recommendations as to what to see and where to eat. This is the place to go if one is new to the area.

“One-stop resource for Williamsport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

Before heading out to explore Williamsport, PA, stop in at the Williamsport
Visitors Center on Via Bella Road, in the Hampton Inn parking lot, next to Perkins. A VERY KNOWLEDGABLE woman ( and her friendly male counterpart the last time we visited) is alway ready with suggestions for neighborhood restaurants (including special deals and when too expect that parking will be difficult), local museums and attractions (it's amazing how much more Williamsport has besides the Little League Museum...there's Millionaire's Row, a library with an art glass ceilling to die for, a NASCAR museum located inside the McDonalds restaurant at the Lycoming Mall), and where to go to experience the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains. There are brochures (free), postcards, and assorted merchandise on sale inside--hours are listed on a sandwich board outfront.
Have your Sunday brunch at the James Restaurant, and then walk over to the Williamsport Visitors Center--it's open and worth it!!!!!!!!
