Visit Marshfield unveils new tourism website and brand
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Visit Marshfield has introduced their “Marshfield Made New” brand and new tourism website, visitmarshfield.com.
The site is nod to Marshfield’s storied past while looking forward to the future, highlighting everything that has been reinvented in the area.
“The past is ever-present here in Marshfield,” said Matt McLean, executive director of Visit Marshfield, formerly the Marshfield Convention & Visitors Bureau. “From antique stores and restaurants that make their homes in downtown’s historic buildings to long-running events like Dairyfest and the Central Wisconsin State Fair, it’s our history that draws visitors in, and our new creative twists that keep them coming back.”
Other recent additions to the area include the newly expanded Floyd & Pat Hamus Cougar Exhibit and new Welcome Center at Wildwood Zoo, and the Hampton Inn & Suites near the Marshfield Medical Center, which is now under construction.
The website, part of the overall Marshfield Made New brand launch, was created to pique the interest of potential travelers to the area, and useful tools for anyone looking to visit Marshfield. Users will find listings for hotels & motels, stores, and restaurants that can be sorted by business type and other criteria, and useful information for out-of-town visitors coming to the Marshfield Medical Center.
“We wanted the site to be especially useful for people traveling to the Marshfield Medical Center,” said McLean. “So you’ll see the distances from shops and restaurants to the center listed clearly throughout the website.”
There are also itineraries to help travelers discover what to see and do, including local art attractions and activities, an up-to-date events calendar featuring concerts, festivals and fairs, and information on indoor recreation, parks & trails.
“We hope people visit the site and are able to see how Marshfield’s past is made new through care, and can see our bright future,” said McLean.
In conjunction with the new website, Visit Marshfield has also launched the Marshfield Made New Sweepstakes, with a grand prize of a two-night stay in an executive suite at Hotel Marshfield and $300 in chamber gift certificates. The giveaway runs through Feb. 28. Enter the contest at visitmarshfield.com.
