Discover Fauquier December 2018
10
~ Nancy Griffin-Bonnaire
If you're hosting out-of-town
visitors over the holidays
and want to show off the
best of Fauquier County, a
quick trip to the
Warrenton-
Fauquier Visitor Center
can help you make the
best possible plans. Even if
you're a longtime resident,
you may pick up some
timely information on local
goings-on!
Becky Crouch has held
her position as the visitor
center manager since it
opened in its original Keith
Street location in 1994.
She explains that it began
as a partnership among
the Fauquier Chamber of
Commerce, the Town of
Warrenton, and Fauquier
County. The Commonwealth
had developed a tourism
accreditation program,
which the Fauquier Chamber
(Becky's previous employer)
learned about and shared
with the town and county.
The three entities became
equal partners in launching
the center and continue to
collaborate today.
Warrenton-
Fauquier
Visitor Center:
Great Resources
for Residents
and Visitors
The visitor center became
a department of the Town
of Warrenton and moved to
its current location at 33 N.
Calhoun Street in 2004. And
while some people tend to
use the internet to search
for places of interest when
they travel, many still prefer
to call in or stop by the visitor
center for personalized
suggestions.
"We want to make it a good
experience, so we try to
learn about our guests,"
Becky says. "Of course we
find out the dates they'll be
here and the makeup of their
group." While adults may
enjoy following the winery
trail, outdoor enthusiasts
may want to hike in Sky
Meadows State Park, and
children may benefit from
a trip to the WARF. During
the holidays, there are
plenty of wonderful events
that visitors can enjoy as
much as residents--such
as Friday evenings at
GumDrop Square.
In 2017, the visitor center
welcomed nearly 4,200
guests, and while half of
them were from Virginia,
the rest came from 46
other states and 24 foreign
countries. To learn more,

(540) 341-0988.
