CONCORD, NC (April 28, 2017) –The latest edition of the official travel resource for Concord, Kannapolis, Harrisburg, Midland and Mount Pleasant, North Carolina is now available from the Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“The people of Cabarrus County and their passion for the area makes this destination an extraordinary place to visit,” said Cabarrus County CVB President and CEO Donna Carpenter. “Each of the personalities featured represent an entire industry of ambassadors who are enthusiastically sharing the story of our community.”

Packed with helpful resources, the 2017-18 Guide will feature four strategically thematic covers. Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Lenny Batycki appears on the first quarter cover representing the area’s unmatched motorsports scene. The second quarter cover emphasizes family travel with an image of graceful rays at SEA LIFE Aquarium. Quarter three highlights small business and shopping local with Kathleen Reeder of The Beady Lady in Historic Downtown Concord on the cover, and Jason McKnight, Head Brewer at Cabarrus Brewing Company will appear on the fourth cover to coincide with North Carolina Beer Month in April of 2018.

The 79-page publication is a free, comprehensive resource to the county’s attractions, lodging and shopping options, full-service restaurants, historical sites, sports and recreation facilities and more. Along with a new size and layout, fresh images and the addition of features stories create authentic appeal.

The Guide reveal was held on Thursday evening during the CCCVB’s bi-monthly Pit Stop Social—an event designed to connect hospitality and tourism industry partners and showcase the many tourism assets across Cabarrus County. As North Carolina Beer Month 2017 comes to a close, this month’s event shined the spotlight on Twenty-Six Acres Brewing Company as guests participated in tours of the brewery after the unveil.

The 2017-18 Destination Guide release comes as Cabarrus County welcomes visitors from all 50 states and 13 foreign countries for the eighth annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway.
