WOODBURY, N.J. — As part of their Economic Recovery Plan, the Gloucester County Board of Commissioners have launched the Gloucester County Tourism Guide, a one-stop interactive website highlighting all things to do in Gloucester County.
According to the county, Gloucester County continues to develop strategies for economic recovery and post-pandemic growth including opportunities to support the tourism industry. The Gloucester County Commissioners recognize South Jersey has a wealth of unforgettable experiences and are committed to help promote them.
“Gloucester County is not only rich in historical sites, it is home to some of the most beautiful parks, excellent selection of local restaurants, acclaimed wineries, breweries, and agritourism experiences,” Director Frank J. DiMarco said in a press release from the county. “By having all of this information in one organized and accessible website, we hope to bring even more residents and visitors to the small businesses and places we love in Gloucester County.”
The Gloucester County Tourism Guide is interactive and has categorized the experiences into the following sections: wineries and breweries, hotels, leisure activities, camping and the outdoor activities, arts and entertainment, historical sites, and colleges.
“Supporting our local businesses is a priority for the Board of Commissioners,” Deputy Director Heather Simmons stated. “Creating a tourism map that encompasses all of the great things to do in Gloucester County is a great way to bring people to our county so they can support our local economy and business owners.”
By using the site, visitors can plan a visit to the Dream Park to see an equestrian event, find a play at one our performing arts theatres, take a trip to the Whitall House to see how people lived during the revolutionary war, book a tee time at one of our golf courses, sky dive, throw an axe, play pickleball at Atkinson Park, in addition to other activities.
The guide is for county residents and visitors alike.
If a local business would like their information added to the site, contact the Gloucester County Department of Economic Development by calling (856) 384-6930 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The website will be updated regularly.
