California Visitor Info

Home » California » California Visitor Info

California Welcome Centers (CWCs) promote their immediate regions as well as the entire state of California. Each CWC is independently owned and operated, and pays a yearly fee to the state for the designation as an official California Welcome Center. In return, CTTC provides marketing assistance and oversight for the centers.

All CWCs perform a concierge service for travelers while in California. Most offer clean public restrooms, plus destination, attraction, and accommodations brochures from participating destinations statewide.

CWCs also provide reservation services, Internet access, regional and California merchandise, attraction ticket sales and plasma screen advertising.

In nearly all of the state’s regions, there are CWCs providing travelers with information, resources and collateral materials. CWC staff serve as personal concierges for all aspects of California travel. CWC objectives include acting as a source for statewide visitor information, encouraging an extended length of stay in California and ensuring there are CWCs to provide service to travelers across the state.
