Last week’s arrival of new and improved Discovery Maps at the Visitors Bureau had us feeling like kids on Christmas morning.
The popular map’s arrival followed a recent shipment of 2017 Beach Visitor Guides that are right now being distributed throughout the Pacific Northwest and across the country. We mail both for free, so send your physical address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pop either in the mail for you without charge. Or click on the Visitor Guides link above to download an electronic copy.
What’s so “new and improved” about the Discovery Maps that arrived last week? Quite a bit, actually. The new map is more than twice the size of its predecessor – it retains the familiar accordion-style fold, but doubles the panels from six to twelve. Importantly, it still fits nicely into a pocket or purse.
The new map is more detailed and more expansive as well. You’ll find one side dedicated to Pacific County in its entirety, highlighting attractions from Oysterville, Ilwaco and Naselle all the way up to South Bend, Raymond and Tokeland.
And while the old map helped you get around, the new map helps encourage your exploration. Among new listings are hiking and biking trails, marinas and boat launches, and museums and historic landmarks. Wondering if you need a Discover Pass to visit a specific park? You’ll find that on the new map. And handy info like the location of public parking areas and visitor centers is listed as well.
We mentioned the 2017 Beach Visitors Guide above. In this year’s BVG, you’ll find information about our member businesses like restaurants, hotels and attractions, as well as beach safety info, local photos and descriptions of what you have to look forward to while visiting Pacific County. The BVG will help you plan that upcoming trip to the Peninsula, figure out what to do and where to eat while you’re hear and get you excited for the next visit.
Another new item that recently arrived on our doorstep is the 2017 event card, a single-sheet card listing all of 2017’s events. It’s perfect for sticking on the fridge or pinning it to a wall.
