2011_finger_lakes_logo-resized.jpgCanandaigua, N.Y. - Finger Lakes Visitors Connection just released its brand new Web site at www.visitfingerlakes.com. The Web site will serve as a resource for travelers to Ontario County, local residents and Finger Lakes tourism professionals. New features on the Web site include a complete redesign from the old visitfingerlakes.com, a revamped groups and meetings section, an updated press room, an interactive map to help travelers see where everything is located, a trip planner, events page, travel packages page, and a brand new section called "Insider Diaries" which gives reviews and recommendations from Finger Lakes Visitors Connection staff and other Ontario County tourism professionals. All the features integrate seamlessly to give the consumer and frontline tourism employees the most detailed and relevant information. More exciting features will be coming in the future, such as a version of the site specifically designed for mobile devices and an interface which will allow Ontario County tourism properties to input their own events and travel packages onto the Web site. This is the first large Web site update for FLVC since 2007. The Visitors Connection has been working with Rochester-based Dumbwaiter Design for about 7 months on the project. Those that represent businesses in Ontario County will notice an expanded "detail page" for their properties with options for a variety of new content. If you wish to discuss your business'  "details page", FLVC will be offering two days where the staff will be present to go over your page with you. The dates are Aug. 17 and Sept. 8 from 7 am to 8 pm. Those planning on arriving before 8:30 or after 4:30 please call ahead to 585-394-3915. If you are interested in becoming a "Finger Lakes Insider" and posting a blog entry on the "Insider Diaries", let AJ Shear know by e-mailing aj@visitfingerlakes.com or by calling 585-394-3915.
