We were returning to Florida after the hurricane Matthew evacuation, and weren't sure the best route to take. The Welcome Center was a pleasant respite along the way. We got excellent, cheerful help and a free map from Laura Book at the Georgia Visitor Information Center, and It made our trip home so much easier. Thanks!

The Visitor Center has been closed for renovation for awhile, When it opens, I would not recommend due to the access on and off the highway is not convenient. The location and distance from the highway is awkward.

I stopped by and spoke with the DOT Facility Engineer and while they have done an excellent job of renovating the facility, they experienced a setback when they found that the HVAC system needed to be replaced and there is a delay in getting the new equipment. So their initial estimate of reopening has been pushed back. Many Georgia Travellers... More

The lady at the Visitor Center was very friendly and had a lot of suggestions for the short time that we would be in Columbus. She was very very knowledgeable of the history and areas in Columbus.

The welcome center on Williams Road in Columbus, Georgia has been closed for several months. We are told that it is being renovated. However, I have no idea what is actually happening or when it will reopen.
