Thank you for helping to improve the Western White Mountains Region for our visitors!
The Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce has worked hard over the past year to increase outreach and focus marketing campaigns to increase travel to the Lincoln, Woodstock, and Franconia Notch areas. With the benefit of the Destination Marketing we have been able to promote this area with success. In order to attain this success we promote the Western White Mountains via online, television, print, and international consumer shows. As a Chamber, we also coordinate events like the New England Brewfest, Murder Mystery, Rubber Duck Regatta, all to drive tourism and community involvement.
As in previous years, our Destination Marketing program sustains itself through a small nightly fee, charged on certain reservations at our participating lodging properties throughout the Lincoln, Woodstock, Sugar Hill and Franconia Notch areas. It has been found that for every dollar invested by the Chamber, $60 dollars was generated in the area for chamber members and non-chamber members alike. This marketing is needed, valued, and has help continue the growth of the Western White Mountains as a destination, not just a community to live.
As part of the room bill for your stay in the Lincoln Woodstock, Franconia Notch area, you notice there is a charge called the “Destination Fee”, that fee is collected by the participating lodging property and passed along to the Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce from guests staying overnight to fund our destination marketing program.
What is the Destination Marketing Program?
This program allows us to consistently improve the vacation experience for our visitors through community enhancements and a myriad of marketing programs. It is our way of making sure that you enjoy your stay this time, and every time in the future.
Am I required to pay this fee?
No. However, we strongly urge you to consider this small investment in a place that you can call your home away from home. We have purposely kept the fee affordable and the participation broad so that we can all benefit from its rewards, without the cost burden.
What are some examples of the marketing and community projects?
- Annual events such as the New England Brewfest, the Murder Mystery Weekend, Annual 4th of July Parade, and the Rubber Ducky Regatta that support our locally owned, small businesses
- Community enhancements – maintenance on public hiking trails, expanding parks and playgrounds, and improving signage.
- Plus, we keep you informed of all that is happening in the Western White Mountains with our social media and digital campaign, blog content and trip ideas, tv promotions and the like.
