ST. LOUIS, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Entering its 13th full year of operations, Reserve Direct, an online travel agency specializing in destination specific travel reservations, has officially launched two new markets in the Emerald Coast region of Florida – Destin and Panama City Beach. The websites, ReserveDestin.com and ReservePanamaCityBeach.com, will feature area attractions and activities such as watersports, cruises and family fun attractions like WonderWorks, Big Kahuna's Waterpark and Gulf World Marine Park. Additionally, the sites offer choice beachfront resorts and other lodging options across both destinations, all in a one-stop-shop platform offering unique pricing offers and package savings.
"Our region, and more specifically Panama City Beach, is a growing tourism market," said Lance Allison, President and CEO of the Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce. "After reviewing the services offered by Reserve Direct, we are excited to have them as members and a part of our future growth."
"The Emerald Coast region is popular with families seeking an affordable beach getaway," said John Johnson, President of Reserve Direct. "We are excited to add these destinations to our growing family and quest to take over the world one great travel destination at a time," he joked. "But on a serious note, these markets appeal to our already established consumer base. Our marketing reach will serve these destinations well, as they sit strategically in the middle of our efforts, both geographically and demographically," he concluded.
Reserve Direct has processed over 580,000 travel reservations with its primary consumer base and market area spanning from the central Midwest to Southeast regions of the United States. These are common feeder markets for Florida's panhandle region which is highlighted by Destin and Panama City Beach. Between the two markets, they share nearly 35 miles of expanded, pristine beachfront that hosts an estimated 11 million visitors each year who have twice voted the area a Top 25 destination on TripAdvisor.
With the addition of Destin and Panama City Beach, Reserve Direct operates four unique travel destinations in Florida, including the historic city of St. Augustine and Orlando, the leading theme park destination in the United States.
