State tourism guide spotlights Issaquah
March 8, 2011
Issaquah is highlighted as a destination for hiking and other attractions in the latest state travel planner.
Washington State Tourism and the state Department of Commerce released a 152-page, full-color print travel planner Feb. 23. The digital guide is available at the Washington State Tourism website, www.experiencewa.com.
Users can browse the free guide or order a print copy online. Or call 1-800-544-1800 toll free.
The guide spotlights time-honored Issaquah attractions and traditions.
“A cute downtown, chocolate factory, zoological park and the famous Salmon Days Festival, held the last weekend in September, are just a few reasons to give Issaquah a try,” the guide states.
Salmon Days, for the record, is usually held the first weekend of October. The state corrected the online guide last week.
“Our goal is to provide visitors with the resources they need to plan a perfect getaway in Washington, so our new travel planner is chock full of helpful articles, maps and inspiring photos from all across our beautiful state,” Washington State Tourism Executive Director Marsha Massey said.
Officials did not use state funds to produce the guide and instead relied on advertising to cover production and printing costs for 350,000 copies.
