We received a warm welcome from the two Ladies at the desk, when we entered. They also helped us with a map for our journey the next day. There are nice displays of the area and a cute little gift shop. It had Plantation Gourmet Peanuts and we bought a can of the unsalted ones. Should have bought more. They are delicious. Nice place to get information, maps or a gift if you're in Bedford.

This is one of the best visitor centers we've seen in our travels over the entire US. The friendly helpful staff can provide information on most places in the southeast with a score of display areas with brochures, maps and booklets and a small theater with movies on the local area and Normandy. In addition; spotless restrooms, a wing devoted to Bedford firefighters with their fully restored 1927 Seagrove firetruck(cast iron wheels & gold leaf trim), a scale model of the D-Day Memorial, gift shop, an electric charging station, picnic tables with a view to the memorial, and a RV Dump Station.

Very helpful welcoming staff. We stayed overnight on Site 3 with full hookups and #3 is not bad to level. Clean beautiful center with lots of information and informed pleasant staff. Gorgeous flowers all around the center with rocking chairs on several porches with beautiful views. Such a nice place to visit. Bedford is a place with a lot of beauty and pride and it is on show at the Welcome Center!

there was a short film about the D Day Memorial and the surrounding area that was helpful as we planned how to spend our time in the area.
