TAVARES — Tourists planning a trip to Lake County have a new tool at their disposal to search for local attractions and accommodations. A new online trip planner on Lake County’s Tourism Web site, www.lakecountyfl.com, allows visitors to plan every aspect of their vacation online.
The online trip planner gives the ability to select from more than 500 tourism-related businesses, such as campgrounds, theaters, art galleries, marinas and bed & breakfast inns. By selecting an activity or attraction, the user can save it to his or her online itinerary. Each personalized itinerary can be printed out or e-mailed and is automatically saved. In addition, events from the Tourism’s online event calendar can be added to an itinerary.
“Lake County features an array of adventures,” said Greg Mihalic, Director of the Lake County Department of Tourism & Business Relations. “Our visitors may want to experience area cultural attractions, explore our many natural parks and preserves, or cast a line for some world-class fishing. Time is valuable and travelers today have less of it available for vacation planning. The new trip planner provides an easy online tool to plan a personalized Lake County vacation.”
Each listing in the trip planner features a wealth of information, such as a photograph of the location, physical and Web address, phone number, driving directions and a brief summary. The Lake County Office of Information Outreach developed the online trip planner.
