Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau unveils new website
30 September 2009
The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau has announced the unveiling of its redesigned, easy-to-navigate Web site - 800poconos.com.
Consumers will find valuable information, special offers, exclusive blogs, full event listings and interactive features – including videos, social networking opportunities and more – throughout the site.
The Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania, known for myriad outdoor activities, hundreds of championship golf holes and breathtaking scenery – within close proximity to major cities along the East Coast – allows visitors to effectively find data and book their next trip with the easy-to-use site. Customization tools like Google maps, “Trip Planner” and virtual postcards are featured on 800poconos.com.
“Whether planning a one-day visit, weekend getaway or extended stay, the enhanced Web site takes visitors on an online tour of the area,” says Carl Wilgus, President and CEO of the PMVB. “We want to make finding information and booking a trip as easy as possible. The new site makes it seem as if one of our representatives is literally in the room with you.”
Visitors to 800poconos.com can plan a plethora of four-season outdoor activities as well as find the ideal place to stay, dine or shop with the valuable online toolkits. In the coming months, the site will add a Buyers Guide and an Ask the Expert section where consumers can interact with those who know the Pocono Mountains best.
While golf, swimming and boating dominate the warmer months, skiing and other popular snow sports make the Pocono Mountains one of the country’s must-visit, four-season destinations. With the close proximity to major metropolitan areas such as New York City, Philadelphia and New Jersey, the Pocono Mountains is a value-laden, activity-filled destination for individuals, groups and corporate outings, families or couples.
