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.

Wonderful visitors center. The staff are so friendly and knowledgable about their town and the national park trails, waterfalls and lodging in the park. The town of Front Royal should be proud to have such pleasant and dedicated staff as the face for their tourist industry.

I appreciated the friendliness and knowledge shared by the staff at the Front Royal Visitor's Center. I only had a few basic questions that they were pleased to answer however I overheard them giving excellent touring advice to other visitors. The Front Royal Visitor's Center is a great starting point for anyone touring the Shenandoah/Skyline Drie region.

When people come to visit there is always a question as to where to go and what to do. The visitor center always fills that need for information. From Battle grounds to ghost walks near Halloween time to the brochures that are there covering Front royal and the surrounding areas. First stop if your visiting the Area.
