Calaveras County is seeing nearly full advanced reservations for both camping and lodging this three day holiday weekend, according to the Calaveras Visitors Bureau.
Lisa Boulton, Calaveras Visitor Bureau Executive Director, was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Boulton attributes the strong advanced numbers to a good marketing campaign, tourists staying closer to their regional home and a diversity of several activities offered throughout the entire county.
As Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the unofficial start of summer, the strong numbers should continue through September. Tourists enjoy the large variety of recreational opportunities from golf courses to lakes and forest trail hikes.
Boulton works year-round to make sure that Calaveras is a part of a visitor’s choice, including a new hard focus on social media.
“Additionally, the Calaveras Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee came on the heels of National Tourism Week,” Boulton said. “Now is our time to show that there are plenty of sights and activities that we are able to promote and market throughout the county.”
The new 2016 Calaveras Visitors Guide has been printed and is now available. Local residents are welcomed and encouraged to pick one up at the office in Angels Camp and discover a number of new activities for themselves.
