2011 Escape Travel Guide Released

One major regional collaborative effort we’ve been working on for nearly a year is the 2011 Escape to Calamus and Scenic Loup Valley Travel Guide. The Escape is a three-county tourism promotion campaign that includes Valley, Garfield and Howard counties. Now in its fifth year of production, the Escape has been an essential marketing effort that has helped to increase lodging and sales tax receipts in Valley and Garfield counties.

A few new features found in the 2011 Escape Travel Guide are updated event and attraction information, a Loup Valley culinary and hospitality feature, a special section on Loup Valley Water Trails and updated photography. We’ve also kept some of the essential material that has been part of our coalition for five years.

Keep in mind this effort is also part of an expanded tourism promotional effort that includes the redesign and rebranding of Move Creative of Lincoln, Nebraska will be our partner in the effort. I’m super excited about our contracted photographer that will be coming out over the year to inventory the amazing beauty in the Loup Valley. We have lots to be proud of and I want to use the photography to showcase our area the way it was meant to be!

If you’d like to order your copy of the Escape Travel Guide, or give us a shout at the Ord Area Chamber of Commerce: (308) 728-7875. Additionally, the Escape Travel Guide can be found at brochure racks in the two-county area. For a complete listing of brochure rack locations, click here.

This has been a labor of love between myself, the Valley County Tourism Advisory Committee, our friends up in Burwell and Nebraska Life Magazine. This effort could not be possible without the various and numerous advertisers that bought into the crazy idea five years ago. To them, especially Miletta Vista winery, thank you.
