Wakulla County TDC Unveils Promotional Videos Crawfordville, Fla. – The Wakulla County Tourism and Development Council has created an online way to "Experience the Wonders of Wakulla" by launching eight promotional videos. The collection is intended to raise awareness of the diverse aspects of the area and to increase tourism.
"People all over the country are looking for reasons to visit Northwest Florida," Pam Portwood, director of Wakulla County TDC said. "Whether they are looking to spend some time relaxing on the river or adventuring down nature trails and through the forest, Wakulla has something to offer. And we thought: what better way to prove that than to show it through these videos?"
The videos focus on the natural elements of Wakulla – 73 percent natural lands and 85 percent natural coastline – and are broken down into the following spots:
- Spot 1: St. Marks Wildlife Refuge
- Spot 2: Apalachicola National Forest
- Spot 3: Wakulla Springs and River
- Spot 4: Rivers of Wakulla County
- Spot 5: Hiking and Cycling through The Florida Trail
- Spot 6: Small Town Wonders featuring Panacea, Sopchoppy and St. Marks
- Spot 7: Small Businesses
- Spot 8: Green Guide and Gulf Specimen Marine Lab
The videos are posted on YouTube and can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/visitwakulla.
This launch is part of the Visit Wakulla viral campaign, which began in August 2010 in response to the Oil Spill and tourism crisis in Northwest Florida. To learn more, visit http://visitwakulla.com.
