New tourism campaign encourages travelers to extend their trip, and their budget, with seasonal itineraries and exclusive discounts
Coastal Mississippi, the Convention and Visitors Bureau for the tri-county region of the Mississippi Gulf Coast announces the launch of One More Day of Play, a year-long initiative to encourage visitors to extend their weekend trips to the region by one more day. Research shows that by traveling on Monday instead of Sunday, consumers can save at the gas tank (GasBuddy, 2022) and on airfare (NerdWallet, 2022). By extending their stay, visitors can not only make more memories but save even more money through seasonal itineraries, and exclusive discounts at some of the area’s top lodging, attractions, and retailers.
“The Mississippi Gulf Coast offers visitors a robust variety of vacation opportunities throughout our 13 charming and beautiful coastal communities, each offering their own unique brand of southern hospitality. Seasonal festivals, attractions, gaming, eco-tourism and so much more can be found throughout the year, not to mention fabulous Gulf-to-table seafood at every turn.” said Pattye Meagher, Director of Communications and Engagement at Coastal Mississippi CVB. “If there’s a traveler on your list this holiday season, we encourage you to give them, and yourself, the gift of ‘One More Day of Play’ in Coastal Mississippi.”
While new offerings will be released throughout 2023 on CoastalMississipi.com, Coastal Mississippi is kicking off the program with some seasonal offerings, exclusive discounts and incentives for visitors who stay one more day.
