“The 2016 Visitor’s Guide is the product of community support and input,” stated Mayor Noble. “In an effort to showcase the incredible beauty of our City through the eyes of those who love Kingston the most, my office sought locally-sourced images by launching the ‘Welcome to Our Hometown’ photo campaign. The response was extraordinary, with hundreds upon hundreds of photographs submitted by residents and local businesses. This Visitor’s Guide is dedicated to every person who calls Kingston their hometown, and to those who we hope will explore our city for all of its history, character and tremendous quality of life.”
The Visitor’s Guide is supported by advertisements from local businesses and was published by local distributor, ColorPage. The Guide was created at no expense to taxpayers.
“It’s fair to say that Kingston is a city destined for progression. Visitors to our wonderful city are coming back year after year and spreading the word about a lifestyle they admire,” stated Frank Campagna, Publisher of the Kingston Visitor’s Guide. “What’s interesting is how many of our visitors are becoming residents and, in many cases, starting or relocating their businesses here. I believe the 2016 Kingston’s Visitors Guide represents our city well; a reflection of a community with a historic past and forward-thinking future. For me and my staff, we feel it is an honor to publish the Kingston Visitors Guide each year. We get tremendous support from the residents, the business community, the Mayor’s office and, equally important, our visiting guests. I am proud that ColorPage can help make a positive impact on the City’s tourism and economy.”
A new addition to this year’s guide is the “Stay a Little Longer…” Economic Development section. This two page spread offers a brief overview of some of the significant investments recently or currently being made in Kingston, and information about the excellent quality of life attracting new investors.
The 2016 Guide will be distributed throughout the Hudson Valley and Metro Regions and is available digitally at www.kingston-ny.gov/tourism. The electronic version includes links to events and supporting advertisers. The Guide can also be picked up at City Hall, the Kingston Heritage Area Visitors Center/Ulster County Tourism office at 20 Broadway, or mailed upon request.
