  • Very helpful to stop here and get information about the surrounding area. Good gift shop for suveniers.

  • We were treated with such warmth and accommodation here that I'm finally coming back to leave a review more than a year later. The gentleman at the Welcome Center couldn't be more lovely or helpful. We arrived in town too late to do much due to dinner reservations, so he offered us a private tour of the stunning and "haunted" Historic Windsor Hotel at the only time we had available. Our then 11 year old daughter loves haunted tours and spooky stuff, but it can easily get to be too much for her. He discreetly pulled me aside to ask just how creepy he should make the tour and was mindful of her reactions the entire time, clearly adjusting the tour to keep her engaged but comfortable. He was so knowledgeable about every inch of the hotel and turned something simple into an unforgettable experience. She had an awesome time and asked a ton of questions, and he also taught her how to use the antique rotary phone booth in the lobby, which was a real experience for her. He even introduced us to some members of the hotel staff to ask them about spooky experiences they've had while working at the hotel, which they were happy to share. I feel so bad that I can't remember his name after all these months, but I hope he'll see this review and know that he made our trip to Georgia amazing! Americus is a beautiful and historic place and thanks to him, we were able to appreciate it fully. Most towns have a forgettable Welcome Center, but if you're in Americus, it would be a huge mistake to skip it!
  • Quiet and the people are always so nice. The Moonshine jelly is divine.
