2020 Travel Guide Cover


2021 Explore Watkins Glen Travel Guide Advertising Opportunities 

Explore Watkins Glen is producing the newly designed, official 2021 Schuyler County Travel Guide. The 2021 Travel Guide will feature photos, travel tips, and will serve as a colorful, informative, and comprehensive guide to the best our region has to offer! 

Why should you advertise? Here are the facts:

  • Last year, our 214 North Franklin Street Visitor Center welcomed over 20,000 visitors. Our State Park Visitor Center served approximately 100,000 visitors in its inaugural year; nearly 12,00 of those visitors left with one of our Travel Guides in hand.
  • The guide is used as the tourism resource for attractions, lodging, restaurants, recreations, the arts, navigation, and much more! 
  • 100,000 copies will be printed and distributed in both of the Chamber Visitor Centers, lodging establishments, airports, festivals, attractions, as well as through direct fulfillments, following inquiries from potential visitors. While visitors oftentimes use digital technology to reach a destination in advance of their visit, once they are in our region many visitors info a hardcopy publication to be very useful: it doesn't need cell connectivity to work, nor power, it won't "crash" and it's always on!
  • Travel Guide readers are actively looking for places to go and things to do. Advertising in the official Travel Guide is the key to making your business stand out! 
  • The Travel Guide will also be digitized and available on our website at
  • This will be the only printed piece in 2021 at both Visitor Centers with advertising opportunities available.
