Annual San Juan County visitors guide released
School is out, and while the weather is still fighting its way out of a wet winter, summer is about to begin! The San Juan Record is delighted to release the sixth annual 101 Ways to Experience San Juan County.
The 64-page magazine is included in this week’s issue of the San Juan Record and is available at local businesses and visitor centers.
“This provides more than 100 great ideas to see and do while experiencing the spectacular place we call home,” said Bayley Hedglin, executive director of the San Juan Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber of Commerce is a partner in the publication.
“Our biggest challenge each year is narrowing down the options to just 101 ways to experience San Juan County,” said San Juan Record Editor Bill Boyle. “I guess we could print 1,001 ways, but it would take 640 pages!”
There are a number of new adventures in the 2019 version of the magazine, which includes glossy color on every page.
Every corner of San Juan County is included, from the waters of Lake Powell to the Four Corners Monument to Dead Horse Point.
The guide includes two checklists this year, a list of the 101 ways to experience the area and a list of advertisers in the guide.
“The goal is to help visitors and residents alike have a great time in San Juan County,” said Boyle. “We want people to be safe, to take advantage of all the business resources that we have here, and to have an unforgettable experience.”
In addition to the publication, the magazine can be accessed at www.sjr101.com.
The San Juan Record and our Facebook page will include updates and weekly reminders of the 101 list. Visit the page and share your experiences completing the 101 tasks.
San Juan County has provided funding to the Chamber of Commerce to print additional copies of the magazine for area visitor centers. We plan a second run of the guide later in the summer and hope to increase the distribution even more.
The book is full of spectacular photos, many from readers of the San Juan Record. The Canyon Country Discovery Center provided the cover photo.
