plumas visitors guide in the works

It may only be January, but it’s already time to once again begin focusing our attention to tourism this summer in Plumas County and the impact it has on our local economy.

We agree with a host of local business people and community leaders that tourism this summer in Plumas County will be alive and well. Those visitors opting for more day trips, weekend jaunts and full-blown vacations closer to home will bring a much needed and important infusion of dollars into our local economy.

To that end, we are already working on our annual Plumas County Visitors Guide. Local business owners and service providers should continue to consider this colorful and informative publication a “must buy” annual advertising investment.

This is the official tourist guide for the area and is published each year by the Plumas County Visitors Bureau in partnership with Feather Publishing.

The full color glossy magazine is packed full of information about virtually everything our county has to offer to both visitors and locals alike. Through the entire year, some 90,000 copies are distributed free to hundreds of locations in our region.

As an added value, we also post the entire magazine in a very user-friendly format on our website, plumasnews.com, to make it as convenient and informative as possible for those planning a trip to our corner of the world.

The deadline for advertising space will be here soon. If your advertising representative has not yet approached you and you want to make sure to reserve your space in this product, call your local newspaper office or give me a call at 283-0800. We’re ready and willing to help you design an effective ad tailored to both your budget and your business.

Your advertising investment and partnership makes it possible to produce this comprehensive and informative guide to picturesque Plumas County. Help us help you capitalize on this opportunity by investing some of your hard-earned advertising dollars into the single most effective product used to entice families to Plumas County.
