The Visitor Information Centers (VIC) in Sylvania and Plains are reopening on July 21. Each year, more than 13 million Georgia travelers stop at state-run visitor centers to be greeted with helpful advice, brochures and, of course, free samples of Georgia-grown peanuts. These two of the smallest centers not only help travelers, but are also destinations in their own right. They recently were transferred from the state’s Department of Economic Development to the State Parks and Historic Sites system, which is part of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
