New Visitor Guide Available To Help Tourists Find Their Way

Thursday, March 1st, 2018

Cornwall Ontario – Bigger than ever, the 2018 Cornwall Visitor Guide has arrived to help visitors find their way around Cornwall this year.

At 80 pages, the 2018 guide is 8 pages larger than last year’s publication and is fully bilingual. The cover features a beautiful photograph by Richard Pilon of anglers embarking on the St. Lawrence River in Lamoureux Park.

“The new guide offers some great information along with fantastic photos that really showcase our community,” says Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Coordinator with Cornwall Tourism. “We want people to be excited about visiting Cornwall and help them discover some of our best attractions.”

The guide includes a calendar of events which lists dozens of festivals, fairs and other special events in addition to providing information on attractions and activities. It also includes a complete listing of area hotels, motels, bed & breakfasts and campgrounds.

The 2018 Visitor Guide uses the same digest format that makes the book easy to carry. New this year is a square binding that is popular with many similar guides produced by Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto.

“We want our guide to represent the community when people encounter it at Ontario Travel Information Centres around the province,” says Mr. Lajoie. “We put in a lot of effort in to the design of the book, and we were fortunate to be able to have access to some amazing images from local photographers.”

A total of 40,000 copies of the Visitor Guide will be distributed before the end of the year, via brochure racks throughout the region and beyond. Local hotels will also have the guide in each guest room. An online version of the Guide will also be available.

In May, staff from the Seaway International Bridge Corporation will serve as tourism ambassadors and hand out copies of the guide to out-of-town motorists entering the City via the international bridge.

“Cornwall plays hosts to dozens of groups throughout the year, be it a sporting event like the Ontario Cheerleading Winter Blast or a community event like Hometown Hockey, or a major business conference,” notes Mr. Lajoie. “The Visitor Guide can often be found in the hands of visitors as they choose how to spend their free time in the city.”

The 2018 Visitor Guide was produced by Seaway News, and designed by Colleen Parette. “We are happy to once again partner with the City on this popular publication,” says Rick Shaver, Publisher Seaway News/Cornwall Express. “We were pleased to see so many local companies support the Guide and see the value in servicing the needs of visitors.”
