The peak tourist season is almost at an end in Gulf County, but the Tourist Development Council isn’t taking it lightly.

Rather than relax during the off-season, the TDC plans to launch their fall marketing plan this week with a focus on growing visitors over the fall months.

Over the next 30 days, the TDC will utilize the social media website to display locations around Gulf County. Visitors and area residents will be encouraged to decode the locations and share any relevant stories.

“It’s going to be fun and interactive,” said Marketing Manager Michelle Perrin. “We’re reaching out to our Gulf County experts.”

The goal of the campaign is to familiarize residents and potential visitors with some of the interesting and photogenic areas that Gulf County has to offer while potentially opening up some eyes to areas that locals and visitors may not have visited before.

 “Everyone knows the gazebo by Frank Pate Park,” said executive director Jennifer Jenkins. “But they may not know it from a different perspective.”

While the goal is not to stump anyone, Jenkins will provide a hint if a picture proves to be too obscure.
