The Delray Beach Visitor Information Center, managed by the Downtown Development Authority (DDA), is celebrating its 12th anniversary with a complete renovation.  Staffed by dedicated volunteers providing exceptional customer service and hospitality, and 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 E. Atlantic Avenue was in need of a refresh. During the renovation, a satellite Visitor Information Center is located at the Sandoway Discovery Center, 142 S Ocean Blvd, Delray Beach, FL (Open Tuesday - Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Sunday noon - 4 p.m.), and the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Center, 140 NE 1st St., Delray Beach, FL is also a location for visitors to find information and brochures. 

The DDA has spearheaded the renovation project with the generous support of the City of Delray Beach, Roy Simon Architect, Maura Taft Interiors, and contract services from local partners, who are all donating their services.  When the renovations are complete at the end of March, the Visitor Information Center will have tripled in size with new floors, ceilings, windows, and doors.  There will be computer access for visitors and new digital signage.  Visitors can stop in and learn more about the shops, attractions, dining, entertainment, hotels and places to live here.  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, entertainment venues and publications to provide their collateral materials to share with visitors.  The Delray Beach Visitor Information Center will be open 7 days a week, 9 a.m. – 4 pm.
