They receive you well and enjoy sharing information about their city. The hint for lunch was perfect and it seemed to us that the lady who welcomed us really does a great job.

Not only does it provide information for the local area, they provide great information for the wider area. I picked up several maps and paid for a CD for a locally self-guided tour.

This was a nice little visitor center but lacked what we needed. Maybe the information we needed is not available. Not sure but several brochures were out. Most likely because we were early in the season. I think it is worth stopping by to find...More

They had lots of brochures for all around the state. We did not have any questions so did not interact with either of the two employees there.

Would recommend stopping here before venturing off. They had some good information about town and the drive along Skyline Dr.

At most entrance to the Drive from the visitor's center is 2 miles. They have fantastic info at the center and it's worth a stop. Have a great visit.
Planning a group motorcycle trip next June. Possibly staying in Front Royal, is there anything to see and do? I was interested in a walking tour or some kind of history tour. Heard there is a trolley tell me about it? Sandy

There is a printed guide for a walking tour. I think there may also be guides to hire - you might call the center to ask.
