One of The Natural State’s most prized treasures is the Buffalo National River, the country’s first national river, established in 1972. Here you will find gorgeous limestone bluffs, miles of hiking trails, an elk herd, scenery galore, and great waters for canoeing and fishing.
To help promote and protect the entire 150-mile river, a group of tourism-related businesses have formed the Buffalo River Chamber of Commerce. It has launched a comprehensive website, www.buffaloriverchamber.com, designed to elevate the Buffalo River’s national prominence. The website contains detailed information about where to go and what to do. You can also sign up for Buffalo River News, an email newsletter that provides up-to-date information on events and season opportunities.
The new site provides links for recreational activities, attractions, outfitters, river descriptions and much much more, making it simple to figure out what there is to do and where, so that you can plan every element of your trip. The site also links lodging and dining facilities to all the most popular tourist destinations on the upper, middle, and lower parts of the Buffalo National River. The website is well done and truly makes it easy to find the information you need to select a place to stay or activity to enjoy. It even has an itinerary builder.
If you have an attraction, lodging or dining venue in the Buffalo River area, this new chamber is accepting new members. Prospective members may apply by going to the membership page at http://buffaloriverchamber.com/membership_top.html
. The Buffalo River Chamber is a member of the National Chambers of Commerce.
BRC members receive exceptional benefits, including in-depth full page website coverage of their businesses and profit centers. As an added feature, member listings are integrated into attraction content so that customers can plan their stay with specifics on nearby locations, costs, times, distances and maps. Members also get the benefits of an email newsletter to complement the goals of the website and free members-only workshops to strengthen their websites and internet marketing strategies. An additional member benefit is inclusion in the website for mobile phones.
The chamber’s campaign to promote the Buffalo will be centered on the Internet, but it will also include partnering with other organizations on the local, state and national levels to insure that the river has a group dedicated to advocating for its water purity and scenic qualities, which make it one of America’s best-loved, but least-known national rivers.
The weather sure is turning nice. Seems like a great weekend to go to Buffalo National River Country!
