New Santa Monica Official Visitors Guide Arrives:

Visitors to Santa Monica can now find their way around the City a little bit easier after the Santa Monica Convention and Visitors Bureau (SMCVB) announced today the release of its free 2012-2013 Santa Monica Official Visitors Guide.

The publication offers valuable information on what to see and do in California’s quintessential beach city including the latest information on area attractions, recreation, overnight accommodations, shopping, dining, cultural experiences, travel tips, and a street map.

This year’s edition also features local perspectives from key community members, inviting visitors to embrace the city’s chic beach lifestyle.

“With near-perfect weather, endless outdoor activities and streets that welcome pedestrians and bicyclists, its easy for visitors to get fully immersed in the Santa Monica lifestyle and feel like a local when they are exploring our destination,” said SMCVB President/CEO Misti Kerns, CDME, CMP. “Our goal was to create a resource for both residents and visitors alike. Whether you are planning a day at the beach or a full summer vacation, this guide can help you create a full and rich itinerary.”

Santa Monica fans can now get a sense of the destination’s lifestyle on Pinterest, the hugely popular social bookmarking site that lets users collect and share things they like on the web.

Santa Monica’s Pinterest page features pin-worthy boards that highlight dining, arts and culture as well as summer essentials.

To kick off Santa Monica’s Pinterest page and celebrate the release of the 2012-2013 Santa Monica Official Visitors Guide, fans of the destination are invited to pin their “Santa Monica PIN-spirations” for a chance to win a three-night stay at the luxurious beachfront Hotel Casa del Mar along with a beach tote bag filled with gift certificates for Santa Monica’s attractions, shopping and dining. Fans can enter by doing the following:

• Follow the Official Santa Monica Pinterest page

• Create a new Pinterest board titled “My Santa Monica PIN-spirations” under the category “Travel and Places” with 10 pins that showcase the Santa Monica lifestyle

• The board MUST contain 3 pins from any of the Official Santa Monica Pinterest boards OR the Santa Monica destination website, SantaMonica.com. Photos pinned to your contest entry board must contain the hashtag #SMpinspiration.

One winner will be selected by SMCVB from one of the top five Santa Monica PIN-spiration Pinterest boards with the most repins. For more information on the contest and to view the entry form, visit www.santamonica.com/contest.

Anyone can request a free copy of the 2012-2013 Santa Monica Official Visitors Guide by calling 800.544.5319 or view an electronic version in page-turner format at SantaMonica.com.
