New Welcome Center is OPEN!

The Crystal Coast Tourism Development Authority (TDA) officially opened the new Welcome Center in Emerald Isle on August 21.  The new Welcome Center is located on NC 58 at the site of the former Merchant's Park near the center of Emerald Isle, and is a partnership between the Town, the TDA, and the NCDOT.

The Town expresses its sincere appreciation to all involved in the project, and appreciates the good work by Jordan Building Company of Emerald Isle.  The Town expresses special thanks to the Carolinas Irrigation Association for donating the irrigation system for the attractive landscaping on the site, and also thanks Artisan Granite and Marble (of Emerald Isle) for donating a beautiful countertop for the project.

The east side of the new building includes a nice lawn for public gatherings, and also includes two public "cornhole" courts.  Come on down, hang out, and throw some beanbags!

A special Grand Opening Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, September 8 at 5 pm, and is open to the public.  Come on out and help us celebrate this new facility to better promote tourism in Emerald Isle and the entire Crystal Coast area!
