We stopped by here hoping they'd have some info on the town for us. There were lots and lots of brochures here but most were for places outside of Helen. The two ladies inside were very polite.

I like that they dress up here. And they have a nice selection of brochures and ideas for things to do in the area. Ample parking as well!

The ladies here were nice and dressed in traditional costumes. They have public restrooms outside which is nice if the center is closed. They also have a lodging phone outside if you need help fidning a place to stay.

Stop here first. Get a map. Ask your questions and get answers from people who know the right info. Especially ask about parking if you're not staying downtown.

The attendants at the Welcome Center are very knowledgeable and friendly. If you're not sure what to do while you're in town, stop in for some suggestions, maps, and coupons. There are wall-to-wall brochures!
