The Division's nine Welcome Centers promote thousands of tourism-related businesses—attractions, accommodations, events and more—to visitors already in North Carolina who are actively seeking travel information. Located on Interstate highways just inside the state line, each Welcome Center has a statewide focus, with an emphasis on information for visitors traveling a particular interstate corridor. Professional, nationally-certified travel counselors located at each Welcome Center:
- Distribute the state's Official North Carolina Travel Guide, the Department of Transportation's official state map, and other marketing publications exclusively about North Carolina.
- Offer detailed travel information in clean, modern facilities.
- Book room reservations at no charge for visitors staying overnight in North Carolina.
The Welcome Centers are open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. The centers are closed on New Year's Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
