Augusta County Economic Development and Tourism releases new tourism website

augusta countyAugusta County Economic Development & Tourism is excited to announce a complete redesign of the Augusta County Tourism website is live at www.visitaugustacounty.com.

Focused on Augusta County’s largest tourism assets, the new site highlights Outdoor Recreation, Scenic Drives & Motorcycle Tours, Farms, Craft Beer, and Antiques as well as Augusta County’s strong wine, food, and attraction offerings.  The picture-rich website includes a new tagline, “All Augusta, All Outside,” and highlights the scenic views available in Virginia’s second-largest county.  Along with a light, bright design, the tagline reflects our destination’s family-friendly and affordable qualities.

Visitors can find weekend and week-long itinerary ideas and are encouraged to remember Augusta County’s diverse lodging options. From hotels to cabins to campgrounds to farm lodging, Augusta County provides visitors multiple offerings for different experiences.  These options provide a perfect base camp for mountain adventures, downtown dining or visits to many farms along the Fields of Gold trail or the craft breweries on the Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail.

“With almost 1,000 square miles in geography, Augusta County is a rich opportunity for visitors looking for varied experiences,” said Gerald Garber, Chairman of the Augusta County Board of Supervisors.  “Our outdoor recreation opportunities influence so many of these experiences from being home to the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway to being an agricultural hub bringing accessible food to home tables and quality restaurants.”

“In the very competitive landscape of travel destination marketing, it is crucial to have a website that is designed for all devices, incredibly easy to use, and that conveys the destination’s brand through authentic messaging and vibrant imagery. The new Augusta County website achieves these objectives while promoting great content that is relevant to travelers and is consistent with the Virginia is for Lovers content strategy,” saidDave Neudeck, Director of Digital Marketing for Virginia Tourism Corporation.

“As a tourism partner with Augusta County, it is imperative to us that the County has a strong, engaging, and informative website,” said Nathan Garrison, Grottoes Tourism and Grand Caverns Director.  “Our partnership with Augusta County and the combined efforts to market all attractions and businesses proves tremendous in our attendance.  I am very excited about the new website launch, as I know it will not only improve Grand Caverns, but our tourism program overall.”

The site, www.visitaugustacounty.com, also serves as a great resource for locals.  Activities ranging from farm visits to horseback riding to easy hikes, speak to a quality of life that has made the Shenandoah Valley famous.  As the base camp of the Valley, Augusta County’s recreational opportunities benefit our citizens as well as visitors.  All Augusta, All Outside.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
