Very nice center and staff

It’s a welcome center, what can you expect?
This place is very nice, clean and the staff is super helpful.
I was there to get map for the tree spirits and a Christmas ornament. Also, my husband has an affinity for these places. He loves them. I’ve seen plenty and feel like I have an expert opinion to give.

This place does not have public restrooms. It is directly across from the park which has ample, clean facilities. So their no public restroom policy is not a drag.

It is on at Simon island. While easily accessible to tourist it is t for those on Jekyl island.
To the to

The lady in front of me was asking. All sorts of questions about where to stay. Which is odd these days because of the internet and smart phones. Anywho, the guest service agent was so patient, kind and very helpful. I heard the entire convo.
While I certainly won’t go out of my way to visit a welcome center this place was worth the stop.

Friendly and knowledgeable volunteers

If you’re new to the area, make this your first stop. There is free, shaded parking and the friendly, knowledgeable volunteer will help you get your bearings so you won’t miss opportunities you may be unaware of. The welcome center is between downtown and the lighthouse. Across the street are restrooms and the public library, and waterfront.

Great Place to Gather Info
Jun 2021
The woman who spoke with us offered a wealth of information about things to do and potential day trips around the area. There are many booklets that you can pick up there as well as artwork and other souvenirs that you find in the local shops. Note: This is not the place for public restrooms which is why we ventured in in the first place. They are across the street in the brick building.
