The Campbell County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CCCVB) was featured as a guest speaker on the April 27 episode of “Beyond Your Backyard NOW,” a new weekly show from Erik the Travel Guy’s seasonal series “Beyond Your Backyard.” Their focus was on Campbell County’s wide-open spaces, variety of activities, and the importance of local visitors centers and the assistance that they provide for not just guests of an area but what they can offer to their local community as well.
“A lot of our visitors come because they want the Western experience. When they think of Wyoming, they think of the West, and rightly so. So they come out to experience the wide-open spaces” says CCCVB Executive Director Jessica Seders. “By car is the best way to do it because the landscape that you’ll experience is incredible!”
With the current climate in travel, many people are looking for more domestic travel. By participating in this interview, the CCCVB reached a national audience to remind viewers that they do not have to leave the country to have an incredible experience.
“Many people think that summer is a great time to travel, and in the past, places like Yellowstone are not always on the top of your list because of all the buses,” said CCCVB Sales and Event Coordinator Christen Burdette. “With the current restrictions on travel, we feel that the numbers of international travelers will be down, so now is the time to come out West. Since we are an hour from Devils Tower and 5 hours from Yellowstone, Gillette is the perfect place to take a break, refuel, stay the night and discover all that we have to offer between our food and family activities available!”
