It’s time once again to begin focusing our attention on tourism this summer, and all the important impact it has on our local economy.

With that in mind, we have begun working on the Lassen County Times’ annual Lassen County Visitors Guide — it’s actually a work in progress all year long.

The full-color, high-quality magazine is packed full of information detailing virtually everything our county has to offer to both visitors and locals alike. Copies will be distributed free at hundreds of convenient locations in our region throughout the year.

As a way of extending its reach to entice more visitors to our very special niche in California, and as an added value to our advertisers, we also post the entire magazine in a user-friendly format on our website, The electronic version of the Visitors Guide gets hundreds of views monthly throughout the season.

It has become apparent that many local business owners and service and hospitality providers continue to consider this informative publication an annual “must-buy” advertising investment — and if you are not one of them, it is certainly something for you to consider this year.

The deadline for advertising space will be here very soon, and your newspaper advertising consultants have already been taking orders from advertisers.
