AmericaTheBeautiful.com introduces a better way to see the United States
AmericaTheBeautiful.com - The United States Destination Marketing Agency, announces the re-launch of their website, which promotes travel and tourism throughout the United States of America.
Washington, DC Metro – The America Companies, LLC has released the most comprehensive privately held tourism and travel promotion website (www.AmericaTheBeautiful.com), which focuses exclusively on the United States of America, The District of Columbia and United States Territories. As a Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), AmericaTheBeautiful.com will continue to prepare and release tourism and travel information to keep travelers informed on an expansive list of tourism and travel options in the United States. American Citizens and International visitors are encouraged to take a broader look at the opportunities, adventures and entertainment available in the United State of America and also to include more US Destinations in their travel and sightseeing plans for 2013.
“Tourism promotion is a vital part of the economy here in Washington, D.C. and across the United States of America,” said Peter Smith, President of The America Companies. “Given the current state of the US & Global economies and the continuing slow recovery process, global travel has been impacted significantly. Fuel prices remain at record high levels and international airfare rates are reflecting it.” “We are all feeling the effects” says Smith. “These are times when we need to look out our back door at all the United States has to offer the tourism and travel industry. The United States of America is home to many of the globe’s most spectacular landscapes, national parks, unique cultures and unprecedented hospitality in the tourism industry and we need to make a point to revisit all that has made this country so grand.”
AmericaTheBeautiful.com has received enthusiastic support from the 50 United States and the District of Columbia in the creation of this tourism and travel website. Visitors to AmericaTheBeautiful.com will now have a single comprehensive source for information on all of the United States, to assist them in making travel decisions. AmericaTheBeautiful.com features high resolution State Photography in slide shows, State event calendars, State tourism videos, State facts, State maps and State Top 10 Events. Plus, the site features highlight articles, Google mapping, a United States National Parks section, a United States Top 100 list and much, much more.
Real spending on travel and tourism slowed in the third quarter of 2012, according to the US Dept. of Commerce, increasing at an annual rate of 0.6 percent after increasing 2.2 percent in the second quarter of 2012. “This is a trend we certainly do not want to continue with” said Peter Smith, “We are hopeful that our efforts will contribute to a growth in the Travel and Tourism total contribution to the United States GDP.”
The company plans to make travel in the United States more attractive so that the travel industry can be boosted again. They realize that many people have lessened their travels or stopped traveling altogether because of the high costs involved, and that this in turn has a dramatic economic impact. The America Companies is working to increase tourism in America again when it is much needed.
