The Genesee County Chamber of Commerce announces the release of the Genesee County 2016 Vacation Planner for travelers. The travel resource is produced each year by the Chamber to showcase the wide array of activities and attractions that visitors can enjoy while visiting our area.
This year’s cover features visitors enjoying Darien Lake’s 600,000-gallon wave pool on a warm, summer day.
“We were are proud to be able to present our county’s largest tourism attraction on the cover of our vacation guide," said Kelly Rapone, the chamber's Tourism Marketing director. "The cover image was actually taken from aerial drone footage that was filmed of the park and conveys the fun that visitors can expect to have in our region.”
The visitor guide is a great planning tool for visitors, but is also very informative for our area residents who may be unaware of the leisure and recreational opportunities that we have right here in our own county, Rapone said, adding that the chamber hopes residents will plan fun, local outings when welcoming visiting friends and family this year.
Special features of this years’ guide include: the announcement of a new waterslide complex at Darien Lake; a new hotel offering at Batavia Downs Gaming; a local bee farm that has begun making mead; stay and play packages for golf; indoor waterpark and Darien Lake, as well as a new coupon section which provides even more value to this already affordable destination.
The Chamber produces 80,000 copies for year-round distribution at key tourism locations and consumer and trade travel shows throughout the Northeast United States and Canada.
Locals will receive a free copy inserted in the Feb. 27th Penny Saver. A digital version can be viewed on the chamber's tourism Web site at www.VisitGeneseeNY.com.
