Leon County’s office of tourism is moving and commissioners are putting the old building up for sale. The tourism office will move to the Amtrak station near Railroad Square. Commissioner Bryan Desloge says he thinks the tourism office will get more notice in the new location.

FAMU Way is getting finished behind it one side. There’s a brand new hotel on the other side. All of the Madison Mile stuff is coming in. It’s really turned into kind of the hotbed of the community,” Desloge says.

The current building is next door to the Capitol. Officials plan to use expected proceeds from its sale to fund refurbishments for the Amtrak building as well as improvements at the Leon Cooperative Extension office.
