Got visitors? Want a getaway? Get a Washington tourism guide

WVG_Cover1D_2013Publish a visitor guide and they will come.  That’s the hope behind the new Washington State Visitors’ Guide which was released Tuesday.

 Produced through the Washington Tourism Alliance (an industry group that stepped up when the state essentially  dumped tourism promotion because of budget woes), the printed guide for 2013 outlines itineraries throughout the state and includes travel tips, maps, and listings of businesses and attractions.

    Get a free copy of the 137-page guide at many visitor centers across the state (including at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle), aboard Washington ferries and at SeaTac Airport.   Or see the guide online for free  (or order a printed copy for $3 and up) at the state’s tourism website or through the Washington Lodging Association. It’s also for sale at some stores, including QFC.

 Don’t be confused if you get a guide  with a different cover; it has three versions to appeal to various people in various places —  a San Juans Islands panorama, Seattle’s Pike Place Market, and wine-drinking near Lake Chelan (my favorite because that’s what I’d like to be doing right now. ).WVG_Cover1B_2013WVG_Cover1C_2013
