While guided tours are a great way for tourists to learn about the local culture and history, many visitors prefer to explore the destination in their own style. The Chattanooga Visitors Center has created a tool specifically for those travelers.
The visitor center recently announced its Pie In The Sky Trail that enables tourists to take a self-guided driving tour through Southeast and Middle Tennessee. Nooga.com reported the brochure equips visitors with detailed graphics of the landscape to avoid getting lost or missing an important landmark.
Created by the visitor center and the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development, the brochure is 27 pages long and includes driving directions, special routes for different vehicles, information on landmarks and descriptions of local traditions.
“If you want to take in a 50 mile segment and that’s all you want to do or have time for, you can read up on all the points along that way then find lodging and dining in those areas using the guide,” visitor center tourism director Shelda Rees told the news source.
Similarly, the Somerset Country Regional Partnership in New Jersey has released an informative brochure that alerts shoppers of sales and deals available to them, reported the Messenger Gazette. The partnership has created three brochures summarizing the resources available in the three surrounding communities including overviews of shopping centers, community centers and the mall. They provide brief descriptions of inventory as well as maps to find the retailers.
