The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s Jean S. and Frederic A. Scharf Visitor Information Center has been officially designated by VISIT FLORIDA as Palm Beach County’s first Florida Certified Tourism information Center.
Rena Blades, CEO of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, said, “The Cultural Council is thrilled to be designated as a Florida Certified Tourism Information Center. Located at the center of Palm Beach County, our information center demonstrates the Cultural Council’s commitment to support cultural tourism while serving our community and visitors. The center helps visitors to learn about the tremendous cultural richness of Palm Beach County and the more than 200 cultural organizations here.”
At the Cultural Council information center, visitors can find information on arts and cultural organizations, events and services; pick up a copy of art&culture, the award-winning magazine about the arts and artists in Palm Beach County; and get inside tips on what’s hot in the arts and culture from a Cultural Council representative. The visitor information center is located at the Cultural Council headquarters in the historic Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. building, an Art Moderne former movie theater at 601 Lake Avenue in Lake Worth. Visitors to this exquisite venue enjoy exhibitions featuring Palm Beach County artists and other programming provided by the Cultural Council.
Official Florida Certified Tourism Information Centers must meet requirements specified by VISIT FLORIDA. To qualify, a center must be a VISIT FLORIDA Partner, open year-round at a minimum of five days per week, located in a convenient and accessible location for the ease of travelers, and with access to parking and restroom facilities to accommodate visitors including persons with disabilities.
