Very informative. The lady was very patient, gave me a very detail, step by step guide to the Skyline Drive, the Cavern, and the downtown Front Royal. I would recommend this a first stop to visit.

The workers are very helpful and knowledgeable. They have all kinds of information to handout - maps, brochures, local papers. It's right next to a good restaurant.
