  • I stopped in here to get some information about the Harrisonburg area. The staff were very friendly and full of of useful information about the city. They suggested that we visit the local Camber of Commerce for information on relocating to the area. The center is located in the center of town and is a beautiful building. They offer countless brochures and maps on local sites and tourist attractions.
  • Staff were extremely helpful and very pleasant. Cool cafe. Small exhibits but nice.
