All these years…and no travel in the Ozarks. ‘Til recently.
Susan and I attended a newspaper conference in the Missouri Ozarks last week. The Big Cedar Lodge near Ridgedale, south of Branson, has the right combination of scenery, relaxation, fishing/golf/equestrian activities and kitschy-ness to be worth the trip.
The dogwood trees were in bloom, a sure sign of spring; we avoided all the glitz and glamour that is Branson, while noting the billboard industry is a thriving business thereabouts.
Destination Sheridan magazine is off to the printers.
This year’s premier lifestyle and tourism magazine about Sheridan will be more than 100 pages and will include a nifty, 16-page local dining guide.
There will be local features, noteworthy stories and items for our visitors, maps and all kinds of other useful information and marketing data.
This year’s cover story: Sheridan’s economic development efforts.
It’ll be published for our subscribers on Saturday, May 11.
Then, it’ll be distributed to almost 150 locations in four states. It’ll be online as well through our website: www.thesheridanpress.com.
And it will be available locally on newsstands, at hotels, in restaurants…wherever tourists meet and convene.
It’s a keeper.
