Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This quaint little visitor center had a multitude of brochures for all sorts of shops, restaurants, events, and activities in Shepherdstown and surrounding areas. It also had a selection of Shepherdstown souvenirs, and the staff member we spoke with was very welcoming and knowledgeable.

Well its 3:55 and the building was closed. I mean I get that you want to go home and all but if it says your open till 4 please be open till 4. I was hoping to get some restaurants and attraction information but I wasn't able to as the door was locked and closed.

Stopped by here for information on Shepherdstown, WV. I can’t recall the sweet lady’s name, but she was so informative and helpful to this newcomer.

Very quiet town. Perfect place if you want to disconnect from the rest of the world. I'd would recommend two or three days max, especially if you don't do any outdoor sports.

We were looking for a few things in Shepherdstown and there was a nice lady that helped us find our way. This building used to be a school. Very cool!

Over the years, while traveling from coast to coast, my wife and I have made a habit of stopping at the local visitors center before beginning our tour of a town or historical site or national park or attraction. It's a good opportunity to be brought up-to-date on what's happening and you can obtain brochures and information on places to eat, stay and shop. The Shepherdstown Visitors Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, is worth a stop. Located at 201 South Princess Street, it is open from 10 to 4 daily. Billed as "One of America's Coolest Small Towns," Shepherdstown has a population of 1,802 and is the oldest town in West Virginia, having been established in 1762. It also is billed as "The Most Haunted Town in America." Judge for yourself. Lots of history here. The town is close to Antietam National Battlefield and Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. It is home to Shepherd University. At the visitors center, learn about places to stay (Bavarian Inn, Thomas Shepherd Inn, Quality Inn, Clarion Hotel and Conference Center, Sundogs B&B), places to eat (Bavarian Inn, Green Pineapple, Blue Moon Cafe, Bistro 112, Press Room, Betty's Restaurant, China Kitchen, A-Wok, Mecklenburg Inn, Devonshire Arms Cafe & Pub, Dairy Queen, Tony's Pizza, King's New York Pizza, Rumsey Tavern) and where to shop (133 Vintage, Ricco Gallery, Christian Caine, Bridge Gallery, O'Hurley's General Store, Four Season Books). And learn about the sites for live music, theater and cultural offerings.

This is a must stop for your Shepherdstown information needs when visiting this incredible little town. Very friendly, air conditioned advise right down the street from Community Garden Market. Stop in for maps, restaurant menus or a restroom break and check out some local books, art work or purchase a souvenir coin for your collection.

The staff & volunteers are warm and very friendly. They're very helpful and share their knowledge about the town and suggest the best places or events to visit. For first timers, this should be your first stop.

...with but a single step, and THIS is the place to step to. Run by energetic locals who know this town inside and out, get all the advice you need right here. Don't waste your time relearning what the experienced learned long ago. Not that anything I know of in Shepherdstown could be categorized as time-wasteful, when time is limited and your interests are defined, stop here first.
