The City of Long Beach Joins Downtown Promotional Program Developed During the Pandemic, Geared Towards Supporting the Deeply Impacted Tourism and Hospitality Industries
Long Beach, N.Y. – Discover Long Island’s Downtown Deals Travel Pass has grown to now include exclusive offers from small businesses within the city of Long Beach. Passholders will gain immediate access to discounts for local hotels, restaurants, beach-side rentals, and brewery experiences.
“We are thrilled to announce that the city of Long Beach has joined our growing Downtown Deals Travel Pass program,” said Kristen Reynolds, President and CEO of Discover Long Island. “Earlier this year, we commissioned and unveiled an inspirational and Instagram-able mural on the Long Beach Boardwalk, known as ‘The Long Beach Osprey Wings.’ The addition of Long Beach to our Downtown Deals program is a terrific next step for stimulating the recovery of the $6.3 billion tourism industry and supporting our local businesses.”
This free mobile travel pass is a great incentive for locals and visitors alike to explore Long Island downtowns and support local businesses. Users can sign up for alerts related to trip inspiration and exclusive discounts for businesses in Bay Shore, Farmingdale, Fire Island—Ocean Beach, Greenport, Huntington, Long Beach, Patchogue, Port Washington, Riverhead, and Rockville Center. With over 100 local businesses included within the passport, it showcases the best of these Long Island downtowns in an easy, mobile-friendly way.
“It has been an honor to work alongside the Discover Long Island team, Long Beach Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses to help expand this one-of-a-kind program that benefits Long Beach residents, visitors, and entrepreneurs,” said Nassau IDA Chairman, Richard Kessel. “I am confident that this incentive strategy will further aid Downtown Long Beach and Nassau County’s recovery efforts as we continue to navigate and grow the hospitality industry in a post-COVID world. Additionally, with the NCIDA’s approval of the Long Beach Superblock, Long Beach will really be thriving.”
