Lonely Planet to Help Bring Vacationers Back to Florida Timeshares, Hotels and Beaches

Hilton Grand Vacations Club Casa Ybel Resort TimeshareThirty-two percent of all United States timeshares are actually Florida timeshares. That’s an amazing 362 Florida timeshare resorts, and while many of them are located in Orlando, there are a large number of great properties in the Florida Panhandle and along Florida’s southwestern Gulf Coast.

In the wake of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Florida timeshares, hotels and tourist destinations remain focused on recouping their tourism losses. Now, the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau (VCB) is taking its tourism marketing in a new direction, partnering with Lonely Planet, an internationally recognized provider of travel content, including editorial guides delivered via print, digital, and mobile media.

Currently in production are eight very special travel videos featuring Lonely Planet authors exploring the southwestern Florida beaches, and advertising campaigns for both LonelyPlanet.com and the UK edition of Lonely Planet Magazine. Already available online at www.fortmyers-sanibel.com is a wealth of vacation planning information on the extraordinarily beautiful beaches of Florida’s southwestern Gulf Coast, specifically the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel.

As Tamara Pigott, VCB executive director, explains, “There’s no better global marketing partner for our destination than Lonely Planet. Their dedication to sustainability and responsible travel is directly in line with our commitment to protect and preserve our beaches and natural resources.”

If you missed your Florida timeshare vacation this year, some of Florida’s finest weather is still ahead. The beaches are beautiful and clearly, the welcome mat is rolled out.
