Ultimate Interstate Guide 81exits.com Launched

OSWEGO – The Oswego County Tourism Office, in collaboration with Jefferson, Onondaga, Cortland and Broome counties, announced the launch of the 81exits.com mobile website.

The website developed by Syracuse agency ABC Creative Group uses geolocation to find “where to stop when you’re on the go.”

This definitive exit-by-exit guide to nearby gas, food and lodging also includes attraction recommendations and descriptions for each community along the I-81 corridor.

“This marketing project was a partnership between county tourism agencies from the Canadian border to the Pennsylvania state line,” said David Turner, director of the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism, and Planning. “It will be a valuable tool for travelers looking for a place to stay, grab a bite to eat, or visit a nearby attraction. The mobile site locates destinations that are close to the north and southbound exits of I-81, and it also links directly to the county tourism sites for visitors who are looking for additional information and want to explore a particular area.”

Travelers simply enter 81exits.com into their mobile browser to begin the experience.

Each listing includes distance from the exit, websites when available and an instant mapping function.

The 81exits.com tourism initiative was funded by a grant from Empire State Development.

Sandra Scott Travels: Take A Stroll Through Oswego’s Peace Garden

It is so easy to drive by places day after day and not notice what is along the way. In my case it was the 1812 Peace Garden on Oswego’s Leotta-Seaway Trail Park. I knew about the War of 1812 Bicentennial Peace Garden Trail because when John and I were in Batavia we visited theirs. It is only right that there is one in Oswego where so many significant events of the “Forgotten War” took place. Oswego’s was developed in 2003 by City Engineer Anthony a. Loetta, the Jay Saternow family and several community volunteers.
