“Best place to get information in an interesting & historic downtown”

Front Royal Visitor's Center
Ranked #2 of 26 things to do in Front Royal

Reviewed 10 July 2014

This visitor's center is right downtown in Front Royal--you probably will want to stop here if you're interested in looking around the city. I suspect the visitor's center is highly rated, since there isn't a choice on tripadvisor for the downtown area of Front Royal. I picked up an interesting brochure describing a walking tour of the historic houses of Front Royal and wandered around town for an hour looking at some of the early houses, looking into shops, and reading about the history of this community. Some of the buildings date to the late 1700's. Stopped here after coming off Skyline Drive and before heading south through the Shenandoah valley.

Open Sunday, with restrooms. Extremely well stocked with travel brochures from near and far in Virginia. Congenially staffed.

Nice 'senior' staff with good sense of humor (it IS early in the season, I guess). Gave us maps and lots of information.

Just your average visitor center. You can easily get the information you are looking for and check out the old train.

I picked up two locally-published guidebooks on area trails and hikes. Visitor centers are perfect for that kind of knowledge and the two gentlemen working the day I visited shared a few good stories as well.
