Your chamber wears many hats
Here at the Prineville Crook County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center we wear many hats. One of those is the job of welcoming tourists and visitors to our community. We are known as a destination marketing organization and our focus is to create strategies to promote travel and tourism to our area, and to represent the Prineville-Crook County region, the available events and activities, and the local businesses.
We are designed to market the Prineville – Crook County area to the traveling public and provide area resources and advice to tourists, event staff and meeting planners. Our goal is to be a great resource offering local information, maps and brochures and a list of current events. When traveling it's always fun to find the visitor center for the best and unbiased information on the area you plan to visit. A visitor center can be a great place to provide you with resources for not only travel related needs, but also local business and community insights.
For the visitor, we at the Prineville-Crook County Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center serve as a gateway to many local destinations. We offer the most current information about our local attractions and our goal is to be a one-stop shop, where visitors can engage with our staff, obtain maps, brochures, information, and promotional books and magazines published not only by our office, but by partnering organizations, local businesses and county, city and government entities such as the USFS and BLM.
As much as we like to be physically present to our travelers, we also know the importance of an accurate and up to date online presence. This was the very reason behind the creation of our new website in the past year. Searching for online resources in the course of travel planning is the number one way prospective tourists get their information. By having a website with a current calendar, list of events, local lodging and other travel information we can attract prospective tourists to our area.
If you have yet check it out, the "Where to Explore" area on the homepage of the Prineville-Crook County Chamber and Visitor Center website is a wealth of information to not only our tourists, but also to locals. It lists activities such as hiking, cycling, water sports, golfing, shopping and even kid friendly fun. There are local photos, maps and even tips on what amenities are available, and what to be aware of in the different areas in Crook County. Go explore our website before heading out on your real adventures.
While one of our goals as an organization is to promote leisure travel, we also want to be available to those here on business as well. With the influx of contractors and new companies coming to Prineville, we are regularly being asked "what is there to do" in our area. We can direct people on where to stay, where to eat, and what activities are going on in town or where to go explore. For those that determine they want to make Prineville their home, we also have a vast array of relocation resources. From information on local realtors, to a list of who to contact to set up utilities, we pride ourselves on the amount of information we have at our fingertips.
