The Delray Beach Visitor Information Center, managed by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA), is celebrating its 12th anniversary by undertaking a complete renovation to its building. A resource for hundreds of visitors a day to our City (with more than 15,000 in 2016), this little Center on the corner of A1A and East Atlantic Avenue is staffed by dedicated volunteers who provide exceptional customer service and hospitality. During the construction period, the Visitor Information Center will be closed and a temporary Center will be located at the Sandoway Discovery Center, 142 South Ocean Blvd. Hours of operation of the Temporary Visitor Information Center will be Tuesday through Saturday from 10am - 4pm, and Sunday 12 noon - 4pm.
The DDA has spearheaded the renovation project with the generous support of the City of Delray Beach, Roy Simon Architect, Maura Taft Interiors, and local partners who are all donating their services. With renovations expected to be completed in late March, the Visitor Information Center will have tripled in size with new floors, ceilings, windows, doors and digital signage. Computer access will be available for visitors to learn more about the shops, attractions, dining, entertainment and hotels, as well as relocation information. In addition, the renovated Center will be designated as the Official South Palm Beach County Visitor Center by Visit Florida.
The DDA encourages all area hotels, attractions, restaurants and entertainment venues to provide their collateral materials to share with visitors at the Temporary Visitor Information Center.
