Destin, FL (Vocus) October 19, 2010
The adventure has begun. After launching the Southern Beach Tour contest to the world in August, Southern Resorts Vacation Rentals selected a lucky winner from the many qualified applicants. Chosen to tour the Beaches of Northwest Florida was Charlene Peters, an avid traveler and writer for the Boston Examiner. On October 8, 2010 Charlene embarked on the month long tour of the areas in which Southern Resorts operates their Florida vacation rental management company.
Checking into their Panama City Beach vacation accommodation, Charlene’s familiarity tour began and her agenda became full. Southern Resorts goal was to not only expose the most beautiful beaches in the United States, but also to the uniqueness of each community and the 680+ vacation properties they represent.
Set to continue until November 8th, the timing of the tour was well planned as wonderful festivals and events emerge in each destination. Before her tour is over, Charlene will have experienced firsthand the local flavor at a number of events including the Seafood, Wine and Music Festival in Panama City Beach, the Blast on the Bay Songwriters’ Festival in the Forgotten Coast, the Destin Fishing Rodeo, Seeing Red Wine Festival in the Beaches of South Walton, Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola and more.
Also an integral part of her agenda is experiencing local activities hosted by business partners of Southern Resorts. “Our Southern Perks Partners have been incredible to work with offering free dolphin cruises, surfing, paddleboard and sailing lessons, complimentary dinners, helicopter and parasailing rides and so much more, really allowing Charlene the opportunity to experience all of the wonders of our beach communities,” says Patricia Hardiman, CMSO of Southern Resorts. These partners already provide Southern Resorts guests, free and discounted tickets throughout the year. “We value their partnership as well as that of the CVBs and TDCs who have stepped in to assist us in showing Charlene a wonderful time,” adds Hardiman.
