The Welcome Center was one of our first stops after we checked into the Goodbread House --I recommend Goodbread, especially if you travel with a pet. We found maps and helpful information about cafes, restaurants, shops and more.

It is an extremely small but cute welcome center. The woman working was really sweet and full of southern hospitality. She was helpful in telling my friend and I were to stay on our next visit.
