News Businesses: Reach tourists in SLO County





Advertise in the SLO County Visitors Guide and reach 8 million tourists who spend over $1 billion annually

The Summer edition of the San Luis Obispo County Visitors Guide is close to the deadline and now is the time to advertise. The travel magazine boasts 140,000 readers around San Luis Obispo County with distribution to over 650 hotels and visitor hot spots.

“It’s more than a visitor’s guide, it’s a lifestyle magazine for everyone who enjoys San Luis Obispo County,” says publisher Scott Brennan. “It’s a great time to advertise to the 8 million people who visit the county every year and spend over $1 billion,” according to an economic analysis of the local tourist industry.

The visitor’s guide features local wine tasting, restaurants, attractions, spas, lodging, shopping, art galleries, museums, golf courses and events throughout its 100-plus pages. A favorite feature for tourists is the comprehensive Paso Robles wine tasting map.

The next edition will be published next month before the 35th Annual Paso Robles Wine Festival.

Deadline is April 17 – Call today (805) 226-9890

The magazine gets amazing feedback from advertisers

“Central Coast Sailing Charters has thrived over the past five years while advertising with the SLO Visitors Guide! The team there have helped me create beautiful ads and I attribute much of my company’s success to the advertising tutorial guidance they gave me. They have always treated me more like a friend than a customer and it has been a pleasure to work with the team at The SLO Visitors Guide.”

– Captain Mark Kocina, Central Coast Sailing Charters

“I have had several people tell me they saw my ad and the write up in the SLO Visitors Guide. Today I had four women that are staying in Avila drive up to Paso just to shop at my store… of course, they are making a day of it around town, but the ad and the write up is what drew them up to Paso. All four purchased and we had such a fun time chatting and shopping together. So again thank you! The ad is working well and the write up is so well done!”

“We have people all the time who tell us they are here because of the Visitors Guide. It’s the best return for my advertising dollar”
