  • Research visa requirements prior to arriving. Some citizenships are allowed visa waivers (though travelers must apply for an ESTA online approval) while others must research the specific visa requirements and fees (up to $200) as details vary. If you are entering through an international airport, be prepared for stringent security and long lines. Simple daypacks and clothes can quicken the slow process.
  • Exchange rates mean that America can be expensive for travelers visiting from other countries. Make sure to bring extra cash, especially for spending in the big cities.
  • Travel Insurance — The US has some of the best health care in the world but it’s also extremely expensive. Travel insurance is a must.
  • Tipping is customary in restaurants and is not included in the bill except for some parties that are large in number. Adding on a tip of 15-20% is standard.
  • Although not as common as hotels or motels, there are youth hostels in The States.

  • Research visa requirements prior to arriving in North America! Mexico tends to be the most lenient with a fee for a tourist card. Canada allows some citizens up to six months without visa while others must enter with a Temporary Resident Visa or other identification.
  • The United States also varies Some citizenships are allowed visa waivers (though travelers must apply for an ESTA online approval) while others must research the specific visa requirements and fees (up to $200) as details vary.
  • Entry to the United States can be a very long and strict process. Remember, everyone has to go through this process, so try not to get too flustered or impatient as that can make the process even longer. Stay within restrictions for carry-on liquids (maximum 3 ounces per bottle) within a clear, plastic bag (maximum 1 quart). Be prepared to take off shoes, belts, jackets, and any metals before going through security x-ray machines.
  • If you are driving over any country lines by car, it is important to double-check border crossing requirements. You may have to show proof of the rental agreement, insurance (i.e. Mexico does not accept American automobile insurance), registration, a dirver’s licence, and other documents (i.e. Canada requires an insurance certificate).
  • Crossing borders now requires a passport regardless of citizenship (including United States, Canadian, and Mexican citizens)

Visit California hosts two successful media events in Western Canada

During the first week of May 2016 Visit California’s earned media team held two distinctive media events in Western Canada providing a platform for destination partners to network with local Canadian media.

Over a five-course, California-inspired lunch, 21 partners from around The Golden State were able to mingle with 21 Vancouver-area media and share their top story ideas. Media in attendance included editors from the Vancouver Sun, PAX News, Lipstick Lifestyle and Western Living, and contributors to the Vancouver Courier, Huffington Post Canada, the National Post and The Province. Connections made at this luncheon have already proven fruitful with upcoming media visits planned and an article posted on Pax News West the week of the event.

 

At Visit California’s second-ever media event in Calgary an unprecedented 18 media attended to meet with 12 destination partners. The large number of attendees in this smaller media market (and increase from the first Calgary event) is a testament to the market’s interest in California and the amazing stories each destination holds. The media in attendance included editors from IMPACT and WestJet Magazines and freelancers representing Avenue Magazine, Food Network Canada, Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Calgary Herald and more. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and popsicles, while making connections and taking selfies.

Upcoming Canada Sales & Media Mission:

The 2016 Canada Sales & Media Mission will be held October 24-28 in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. The PR track will reach top-tier media and influencers through media appointments and networking events, offering more one-on-one pitching opportunities and unique experiences such as editorial insights panels.

The Worth Group announced that San Diego has been named as a 2016 “Worth Destination,” one of the “Most Dynamic Cities in America.” Featured in the June/July issue of Worth magazine, San Diego is among 15 cities lauded for civic leadership, quality of life, business climate, sustainability, entrepreneurial community, cultural offerings and urban innovation.

After months of deliberation and research by Worth’s editorial team, San Diego was chosen for its burgeoning technology and biotech ecosystems, powerful cross-border manufacturing economy, unparalleled medical infrastructure and world-class cultural institutions.

 

 

What they say…

“San Diego has long been famous for its incredible natural beauty and beautiful weather,” says Richard Bradley, Worth’s editor in chief and chief content officer. “But thanks to its close and mutually beneficial relationship with Mexico, its status as a global hub with a particular emphasis on Asia, and its world-class scientific community, San Diego is also an economic powerhouse.”

 

“Recognition like this from a magazine as prestigious as Worth shows that San Diego’s reputation is shifting,” says Joe Terzi, President and CEO of the San Diego Tourism Authority. “The city is becoming known for more than beautiful scenery. Showcasing San Diego’s innovation, creativity and strong business sector is vital not only for attracting new companies and talent to the marketplace, but it is also key for attracting top conferences and business travelers, which are a critical part of the local tourism economy.”

 

“From advancing the human genome to developing cutting-edge military technologies, San Diego is a leader in global innovation,” said Mark Cafferty, president and CEO at San Diego Regional EDC. “Worth provides San diego with a powerful platform to tell our story to important audiences around the world.”

 

Focused on entrepreneurship, wealth management, philanthropy, travel and lifestyle, the Worth media brand includes print, digital, broadcast and radio channels  as well as the bimonthly magazine Worth. The full list of Worth Destination cities was announced on June 21. The June/July issue of the magazine featuring San Diego will be available on newsstands beginning June 28, 2016.

Visit Santa Barbara’s ‘Brighten Your Day’ campaign: bringing sunshine to cold-dwellers and a trip package to enjoy the city along with the Prompt Charters in US

santasanta 1

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Santa Barbara is a popular destination for visitors looking for a warm weather escape. To drive awareness and increase visitation during the destination’s November through March shoulder season, Visit Santa Barbara targeted travelers in cooler-weather cities with the “Brighten Your Day” social media campaign.

This personalized, strategic approach earned Visit Santa Barbara a 2016 Poppy Award for Best Social Media Campaign. Initially geared toward Seattle residents, the campaign included real-time giveaways of Santa Barbara-themed gifts to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook users in Seattle who utilized the custom#BrightenYourDay hashtag. To generate more buzz, Visit Santa Barbara expanded the campaign to Portland, Denver and Chicago, giving cold-weather dwellers a chance to win a Santa Barbara getaway.

“We surprised users with something that related to their entry and was Santa Barbara-centric,” said JessyLynn Perkins, Digital Marketing Manager at Visit Santa Barbara. “One woman said palm trees brightened her day, so we shipped an actual palm tree to her. The whole campaign was about bringing the warmth of Santa Barbara to people in cold-weather markets to truly brighten their day.”

By making an emotional connection with users, Visit Santa Barbara’s campaign was more than just a giveaway – the gifts were seen as meaningful acts of kindness. It also helped keep Santa Barbara top of mind for travelers considering a vacation destination. The campaign, produced in partnership with the agency Sparkloft Media, reached 7.1 million users and received more than 1,200 competition entries, with a total of 36,222 engagements.

SOCIAL MEDIA BEST PRACTICES

Visit Santa Barbara’s social media efforts consistently drive awareness to the destination, highlighting local activities and attractions while also providing shareable content for users to show their love of Santa Barbara with friends and family, Perkins said.

“We have a very specific objectives-driven social strategy to which we base our performance measurement and success,” Perkins said. “Combining rich content, advertising, influencers and campaigns, we reach specific audiences based on our goals.”

When it comes to social media best practices, Perkins also stresses the importance of authenticity.

“Fans are your biggest advocates and best source for creating content,” she said. “Every social strategy should begin with the desire to give fans the content they crave. Allowing fans to have a hand in creating our content provides our audience with the chance to be a part of the story and build brand ambassadors.”

Additional social media must-dos include: always sourcing your images and providing proper credit, tailoring posts to the appropriate platform and posting with a purpose that meets your goals (quality vs. quantity).

LOOKING AHEAD

In the coming months, Visit Santa Barbara will continue its out-of-market push. With the newly relaunched American Airlines non-stop flight service from Dallas to Santa Barbara, the Visit Santa Barbara team is hitting the streets of Dallas to activate a social media campaign in conjunction with the announcement.

Santa Barbara Municipal Airport ended direct service to Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport in 2009. The restored service to DFW is expected to provide an increased economic impact to the area, which has experienced a decline in air travel in recent years.

The DMO also has plans to become more active in live-streaming messaging apps, providing real-time interactions with the destination.

“There is no place like Santa Barbara, and we strive for our marketing programs to embody the attitude, look and feel of our destination,” Perkins said.

Destinations can look forward to visiting Santa Barbara when the city hosts the 2017 Outlook Forum Feb. 27-March 1. Register online today.

Hoping to draw big spenders and compete with high-end malls, Universal Studios has announced plans for the first major face-lift of its shopping and dining district in more than 15 years. The focus of the overhaul at CityWalk is to cut back on the low-priced souvenir shops that appeal to tourists and instead add more high-end retail outlets and restaurants that will draw well-heeled locals and millennials as well as upper-income tourists.

Know your city- California
ca
  • Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and towns near Yosemite National Park feature hostels. Most others feature budget hotels.
  • Wilderness areas have numerous campsites, which usually require permits.
  • Lodging in major cities and near national parks should be booked three to six months in advance for summer, and six to nine months ahead for major holidays.
  • Lodging for Yosemite National Park outside winter should be booked the day it becomes available (five months ahead for campsites, a year ahead for everything else)
  • Major cities and Yosemite feature public transit systems, and have good bus/train connections. A car is necessary for anywhere else in the state (and greatly helps in Los Angeles)
  • High mountain passes (including Tioga Road in Yosemite) close in winter. Mountain roads that remain open require tire chains, which should be rented in advance.
  • Gas/petrol in rural areas is 20-70% more expensive than in cities.
  • When driving in the deserts or mountains, carry at least one gallon of water per person
  • When staying overnight in mountain areas, all items with a scent must be securely stored in your room or a locker, not your vehicle, to avoid bear damage.
  • If driving a convertible is on your travel wish list, this is the place to fulfill it.
