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!
