Kawartha Lakes, Ontario (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Kawartha Lakes, Ontario: Kawartha Lakes resorts, tourist operators and businesses welcome the launch this month of an exciting new website that promotes the Kawartha Lakes region as a great Ontario tourist destination in cottage country. The new Kawartha-Vacations (http://www.kawartha-vacations.com) website is a directory for planning a vacation, conference or wedding in the Kawarthas and provides a wealth of valuable information including accommodation listings, things to do, popular area events and attractions. The Kawartha Lakes region, located a short drive northeast of metropolitan Toronto, has been a favorite Ontario vacation destination for generations, with many beautiful lakes, charming towns and exciting area attractions.
The new Kawartha–Vacations directory site is extensive, with hundreds of pictures and seventeen pages of information for planning a Kawartha family vacation, resort wedding, conference, romantic escape or golf weekend in the Kawarthas. The website is designed so that visitors can quickly find the information that they need. The accommodation directory page lists a wide variety of Kawartha resorts, inns, lodges, cottage resorts, camp grounds and RV parks, and offers hot-links to most sites so visitors can get more information or book directly with the resort property. The Last Minute Deals page, which is regularly updated, is where resorts post last-minute specials and resort packages. Other informative pages on the site include Weddings, Conferences, Events, Golf, Fishing, Marinas, Attractions, Dining, Spas, Shopping, and more.
The Kawartha-Vacations directory website was built by First Page SEO, one of Canada’s top web marketing firms. The site has been optimized to place well with the search engines and be highly visible. All Kawartha area accommodators are welcome to advertise on the site. Any profits realized from advertising sales will be put back into development and ongoing maintenance of the site. Any left-over funds will be donated to the Kawartha Land Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving land in the Kawarthas.
Spearheading this Kawartha Lakes marketing initiative is resort owner Ben Samann, the man behind the new Kawartha -Vacations website. “The whole idea behind the new Kawartha -Vacations website is to promote the resorts and attractions in the Kawarthas, and to let people know what a fabulous place this is to vacation. I felt that an attractive and informative directory would help to build public awareness and to increase tourism in the area, especially during the shoulder seasons. It just makes sense that Kawartha resorts and businesses join forces to market the Kawarthas together. We aren’t competing against each other, we are competing against other Ontario tourist destinations like Muskoka, and sun and sand locations like Cuba, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the cruise boat industry,” says Samann.
