– Spring is coming and so are the tourists. “Now is the time to advertise your business to the millions of tourists visiting our county every year,” says Scott Brennan, publisher of the San Luis Obispo County Visitor’s Guide.

Access Publishing is preparing its spring edition now – The deadline is Feb. 10. The tourist magazine is celebrating its 15th anniversary as the #1 travel guide in the county. It boasts 120,000 readers around San Luis Obispo County with distribution to over 700 hotels and visitor hot spots. The spring is one of the most popular among readers and advertisers.

The guide gets great reviews from advertisers:

“Our ad in the Visitors Guide was one of the best avenues for bringing in new customers this past year, especially from hotels! Access Publishing does a really nice job developing crisp clear and colorful ads, and provide a lot of great “advertorial” descriptions of our Central Coast Communities. Great investment for your business!” – Susan Stewart, Beads By The Bay, Morro Bay

“It can be difficult to know where to spend your marketing dollars, but for us as a winery and retail establishment, I don’t think you can go wrong with Access Publishing. Their prices are more than reasonable for the exposure you receive.” – Eberle Winery

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

The SLO County Visitors 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.

Scott and Beth Brennan of Paso Robles started the magazine in 2007 with the vision of offering tourists a complete guide to the county. It’s broken up into city sections with beautiful photography, in-depth articles, detailed maps and recommendations, called “Favorite Places.”

The SLO County Visitors Guide covers San Luis Obispo, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach, Oceano, Arroyo Grande, Nipomo, Los Osos, Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria, San Simeon, Santa Margarita, Atascadero, Templeton, Paso Robles and San Miguel.
