STAFFORD, VIRGINIA – The Stafford County Department of Economic Development and Tourism has released a new version of TourStaffordVA.com, the county’s tourism website. The redesigned site has a renewed focus on bringing visitors to the county for both overnight and day trips.
“We think a lot of people are aware of Stafford, given our central location along the I-95 corridor,” said John Holden, Director for the Department of Economic Development and Tourism. “But we wanted to share a deeper awareness of all of the attractions and great things to see and do around the county.”
The new site features a prominent tool for visitors to book stays in the county’s hotels, as well as a detailed itinerary section that helps people plan their visit to the Stafford area. Additionally, the site has listings of the county’s tourism assets, including historical sites, outdoor destinations, restaurants and breweries and wineries.
“The new site really showcases all that Stafford County has to offer,” Holden said. The site also has special sections for people planning events in the county, including sports tournaments, reunions, group meetings and weddings. Those sections provide links to meeting spaces and other resources that are key for planners.
An upgraded event calendar also features where county businesses can post their tourism-oriented events, and a Stafford Savings Pass where visitors can save on food and other county experiences.
“The new website offers critical changes and improvements for responsiveness, new content and messaging, and utilizes the latest design trends to further communicate why Stafford County is an ideal place to visit,” stated Courtney Swenson, Marketing Manager for the department. “This redesign is just the start for the site,” Swenson said. “We have other tools in the development pipeline that will make it easier for people to discover Stafford.”
