Explorations of the Offbeat, off the beaten path, overlooked and forgotten

Travel and Touring Center

(Journeys Into – Travel Journeys)

When our journeys around North America’s backroads and byways started some three decades ago, it was at time that professionals never quite knew what to make of them.

Seeking those places, attractions and activities beyond the interstate and beyond the conventional tourist spots – that places that we now call “the offbeat, off the beaten path, overlooked and forgotten”, one was instead greeted with pamphlets and special deals for Disney, Las Vegas, Cruises and Club Med.

Something else was being sought. That something else was not to be found.

Beyond travel agencies, there were books, articles an occasional TV features. But there was no place that offered the blending together of media and travel planning.

Today there are so many more resources available – a seeming overabundance of data, information and features. We started in 1986 with several data-bases, additional features and hot travel hotline to create our first service (Weekends on the Road).

Today even with all that information ther are few places that make the connection when one has been inspired by what they have seen or heard and wants to experience it for themselves (The connection between a story well told and a trip).

With our Travel and Touring Services, there is such a place.

It ties our features about “the offbeat, off the beaten path, overlooked and forgotten” with tools to make it possible to experience these people, places and activities through journeys of discovery.

We have a feel for the subject matter, so we know what you are looking for – it’s the type of travel service we would have gone to way back then had it been around.

We serve individuals, groups, travel industry and travel professionals, as well as communities who relay on travel and anyone, for that matter, interested in generating additional business base on travel beyond the interstate and off the beaten path.

We hope you consider the services that might best work for you at our Travel and Touring Center.

We look forward to being of service.

Let’s journey together.
