Two Great Destinations Take the Spotlight

From Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas, the Talkin’ Tourism team of host Gary Guertin and Robin Hicks-Connor shared lots of good information about two great destinations.

First up was Kristen Mitchell Hughes, Vice-President of Tourism Marketing for the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau.  The conversation brought back some great memories for 'Radio Man' (Gary) after spending so many summers on Cape Cod in his “younger days”.  Robin had some fond memories of time spent in Chatham as well.  Do you know about Quahog Day coming up on June 20th?  Pretty amazing what tourism professionals will come up with.  Why does so much ice cream get consumed in new England?  Kristen had the answer.  From the Outer Beach, to Nantucket Sound to Cape Cod Bay, on the Cape there is a beach for everyone!

Next, we moved on to the Ocean Reef Yacht Club & Resort on Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas. General manager Kor Dormans shared the history of the resort and all of the great things to do while on Grand Bahama Island. Some of these included Garden of the Groves, SCUBA diving, great fishing, shopping, casinos and a whole lot more. The best part is that Grand Bahama Island is so close to the Treasure Coast.  Is there golf?  Absolutely!

Grand Bahama Island has lots to offer, not to mention the great roast conch at Tony Macaroni’s Conch Experience on Taino Beach to gourmet dining at the Flying Fish Restaurant. What are you waiting for? See you there soon!

It was a great show with lots of cool summer vacation information. As always, thanks for listening in!

Time for "fun in the sun" from Cape Cod to Grand Bahama!

Kor Dormans, the general manager of the Ocean Reef
Yacht Club & Resort will share  this week what's happening on
Grand Bahama and describe his south shore Grand Bahama
resort, accommodations and amenities.
Well now that Memorial Day has passed it's on to summer (which officially begins June 20 in the Northern Hemisphere) and time for fun in the sun!

Many South Floridians have their roots in the Northeast and many spent summer time on Cape Cod. To get a sense for the upcoming tourist season on “The Cape” Talkin’ Tourism will have the pleasure of speaking with Kristen Mitchell Hughes, the Vice President of Tourism Marketing of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce/Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Cape is blessed with hundreds of miles of pristine beaches, great fishing, unique history and culture, and some of the best fried clam rolls and lobster salad rolls known to man (or woman).  Are there any great deals happening?  Talkin’ Tourism wants to know.

From the north we will also travel to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island to catch up with Kor Dormans, General Manager of the Ocean Reef Yacht Club & Resort, a great resort and marina facility. Kor will also share what special opportunities await the prospective visitor to Grand Bahama Island as well as things to do, places to go and people to meet.

The voting is done and Talkin’ Tourism will reveal which town in America was vote the Ultimate Fishing Town.  You may be surprised as to where the number one fishing town is located and how many votes they received. (No, Stuart, the "Sailfish Capital of the World" did not win).

Fishing tournament wrap-ups and what’s ahead in the coming weeks for angler,s as well as fun events and activities for locals and visitors alike, will round out the hour.
