2006 Kentucky Visitors' Guide Makes Vacation Planning Easy
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 20, 2005) -- It’s now known as the Kentucky Unbridled Spirit Official Visitor’s Guide, and at 178 pages, it’s 16 pages longer than the 2005 version, which was called the Kentucky Great Getaway Guide.
The 2006 edition is easier to use, with the state’s attractions and accommodations divided into nine regions versus four in last year’s edition. Each region’s attractions are earmarked with different color-coded tabs on each page. Accommodations are printed with a different background color for each region for easy recognition.
The press run of the guide was 550,000 copies, and they’re free. You can pick up a copy at the nine Welcome Centers, 53 state parks, and local convention and visitors bureaus. You can also order a copy by calling 800-225-8747 or visiting www.kentuckytourism.com.
“This year’s Visitor’s Guide is the best one ever,” said Randy Fiveash, Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Tourism. “It is more user friendly, giving the intended audience, our visitors and potential visitors, a tremendous tool to use in planning a Kentucky vacation.”
A separate calendar of events has been prepared and is available at the same places as the Visitor’s Guide.
“It has a new look, new regions, new layout and more details” than previous editions,” said Kathy S. Yount, managing editor of the guide and creative services manager for the tourism department.
The new guide will be ready to debut at the round of 2006 travel trade shows, beginning with Cincinnati in January, Yount said.
