Montana 2014 – 2015 Official Guidebook Now Available
(HELENA) – The Montana Office of Tourism (MTOT) is helping travelers “Step out of bounds” this summer and “Go deeper” in the winter to experience their own Montana moments with the 2014–2015 Official Guidebook.
“Montana is such a breathtaking destination to experience, and this guide is a testament to all the wonderful travel activities that make our state a premiere destination,” said Meg O’Leary, Director of the Montana Department of Commerce.
This year, the guide features photos and stories that were submitted by real Montana travelers through Facebook and other social media outlets using the #MontanaMoment hashtag. The cover image, “View of Heavy Runner Mountain and Reynolds Mountain from the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park” taken by Jason Savage, was voted on and chosen by fans of the Montana Facebook page (facebook.com/visitmontana).
“Thanks to Montana travelers and their amazing photos, we really stepped it up a notch with this year’s guide,” said Jeri Duran, Administrator of the Montana Office of Tourism. “The featured content that was curated from our social media communities adds an authentic and personal touch to one of the best resources available to Montana travelers.”
The guide is full of valuable Montana tourism information, including trip inspiration and traveler services information. The 98-page guide includes articles and regional information celebrating the state’s travel destinations and activities including scenic road trips, family-fun adventures, local cuisine and outdoor experiences.
Each travel region is profiled “At a Glance” and is followed by suggestions for travelers to “Go Deeper” and make the most of their trips; from preparations before they go to the best places to visit and things to do while they’re there.
The 2014-2015 Official Guidebook is available at Chambers of Commerce and Visitor Information Centers around the state as well as online at http://www.visitmt.com/pdf/index.htm, where travelers may order a printed copy or download a digital version.
