SCUGOG: With a crowd of local business representatives, tourism partners, Scugog council members and the Durham Regional Chair in attendance, the Township of Scugog launched their new tourism website at the Scugog Memorial Public Library on Thursday, May 16.
“The northern municipalities have so many wonderful and unique experiences to choose from. The tourism industry is growing, and has a far-reaching economic impact, employing Canadians across the country. We acknowledge the great importance of tourism as an economic driver,” Mayor Bobbie Drew told those in attendance.
The site, www.scugogtourism.ca, features information about the Township’s history, information on where people can go to eat and drink or go to find bed and breakfasts or hotels, a listing of community events, information on outdoor locations people can check out and locations for people to go to shop.
“The website is going to be seasonal, so right now we are showing our spring, summer best foot forward. It’s been designed to attract the demographic of the folks that are coming to visit,” Scugog’s communications manager Lori Bowers explained.
Durham Regional Chair John Henry said this website is a great way for Scugog to market everything the area has to offer.
“What an amazing story this community has, and now we have an opportunity to sell that story not only within the Region, but throughout Ontario,” he said.
