MOBILE, Ala., May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --This year represents the start of Alabama's three-year bicentennial celebration as the 67 counties of Alabama celebrate 200 years as a State in 2019. Various themes will play out as part of these celebrations. In 2017, Alabama focuses on "Discovering Our Places," coinciding with Alabama's territorial bicentennial. This week marks National Travel and Tourism Week in North America, a week where we celebrate the impactful contributions destinations and organizations make to the U.S. economy. So, it is fitting that this week marks the official launch of Alabama Pass: a simple, easy-to-use solution that allows visitors and locals in Alabama to SAVE MONEY and EXPERIENCE MORE. A theme the developers hope will empower visitors to create memories with their friends and family in Alabama that they wouldn't have otherwise had the opportunity to do.
Visit www.AlabamaPass.com or one of their partner locations to purchase your Alabama Pass for $10 ($8 for children). Then immediately enjoy minimum savings of 25% from attractions, 15% from restaurants and 10% from retailers and service providers. A pass provides one discount at each and every partner you visit within a seven day period. There are no finicky logins, no paper coupons, no apps to download, and to make it easy on families, up to 10 adults and 10 children may all reside on one pass. There is a Group Solution too.
The team behind Alabama Pass, WildNative, believe successful tourism results from eliciting an emotional response to your destination. There are four required factors: Cultural Tourism - historical, arts, and food; Eco-Tourism - wildlife and nature; Adventure Tourism - sports and active involvement, and Volun-tourism - giving back. "I like to call it learn a little, see a little, live a little, give a little," says Kristian Aboud, WildNative's founder and resident imagineer.
President Michael Dorie elaborates on how Alabama Pass fulfills this: "Alabama Pass provides the mechanism for creating a cooperative effort from the local community - attractions, restaurants, retailers, hotels, and local government. If we are able to help tourists experience more on their budget, then we are more likely to achieve the four factors that we believe will elicit an emotional response to our destination, thereby bringing people back year after year."
Alabama is a very diverse state, with a long history and a strong global footprint that has changed the world in many ways. World-class attractions, cuisine, beaches, and wetlands suggest that perhaps it's worth adding this destination to your bucket list. Alabama's Bicentennial Celebrations provide a perfect backdrop to your next getaway, and now with Alabama Pass, you simply can EXPERIENCE MORE.
