Go Adirondack.com - new tourism Web site up and running!

PLATTSBURGH Theres something new along the shores of the Adirondack Coast - actually that very term is too. The Champlain Shores and Visitors Convention Bureau, a division of the Plattsburgh North Country Chamber of Commerce announced the official launching of their new tourism Web site this week during a press conference. It has been months in the making, said Marketing Director Michele Powers, who gave several members of the media a demonstration of the new sites features. It is designed to be fun, have visual appeal, rich content and to be easy to use, Powers said. It is her hope that the term Adirondack Coast, which was actually something they adopted from the Lake Placid Essex County Visitors Bureau and the Lakes to Locks program, will catch on here in the place commonly referred to as The North Country. It conjures up some strong connotations, she said of the term she feels is a wonderful description of the area, given that the Adirondack Mountains are located right on the shoreline of Lake Champlain. What does the new Web site have to offer? See for yourself - visit: www.goadirondack.com There is plenty of information for both the tourists coming to the area as well as those living here looking for events, entertainment venues and dining and lodging options. It also includes complete themed itineraries should folks be interested in taking a day trip -locally, to Vermont, or even to Montreal. The Web site also features information on the upcoming bass fishing tournaments and even has links to see weather forecasts for the region. And for our Canadian visitors, there will soon be a French version of the site.
