On Wednesday, May 10, Leon County Government will celebrate the Grand Opening of the community’s new Visitor Information Center, housed in the historic train station at 918 Railroad Avenue. This 165-year-old building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has been meticulously restored to its 1920s charm. The center is strategically situated between the campuses of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and Florida State University in the Arts District and within walking distance of over 400 hotel rooms.

The event, taking place during National Tourism Week, will run from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and will include live music, refreshments, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with local dignitaries, industry leaders, and the public. Everyone is welcome to attend!

The extensive renovation project has transformed the building into a multifunctional space, featuring the offices of Leon County’s Division of Tourism (Visit Tallahassee), the Visitor Information Center and Gift Shop, and a community room.

Visitors are invited to explore the beautifully restored building and learn about the various attractions, hotels, restaurants, and events in Leon County. The Visitor Center will serve as a hub for both tourists and locals, offering a curated gift shop that showcases locally made products such as jewelry, collectibles, Tallahassee/Leon County-themed postcards, hats, T-shirts, and other unique gifts.

Those first to arrive will receive commemorative items recognizing the opening day.
