2011 ESCAPE to Loup Valley Travel Guide

The Loup River Valley Tourism Coalition, in partnership with Nebraska Life Magazine, is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of the 2011 ESCAPE to Calamus and Scenic Loup River Valley Travel Guide.  The ESCAPE Travel Guide is a unique tourism and economic development partnership between counties and communities that promotes Loup Valley amenities, attractions, events and businesses. The travel guide is funded in full by advertising sales, the lodging tax fund for tourism promotion and sales tax proceeds for economic development.

The 2011 Guide will also mark five years of cooperative marketing for tourism in the Loup Valley. Both the coalition and the ESCAPE Travel Guide have won state awards in tourism promotion excellence. New for this year is the inclusion of Howard County attractions and events as part of the publication.

Nebraska Life writers, photographers and sales staff will be working in the region in September.  The sales deadline for advertising is September 15, 2010.  If you are interested in advertising in the 2011 ESCAPE Travel Guide, contact Nebraska Life sales staff at (800) 777-6159.
