Nick McWilliams reporting – Thanks to a trio of notable rail-related locations, the Tuscarawas County Conventions and Visitor’s Bureau is promoting their Steam Trail.
The Ohio Stream Trail, which features multiple stops at scenic rail locations in the area, such as Warther Museum and Gardens, Age of Stream Roundhouse and the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum, has a limited window for tickets.
Partnership Development Coordinator Diane Lautenschleger says that recently, the trail received some national exposure with an ad campaign in the Wall Street Journal publication Horizon, as well as a sign on Times Square.
Lautenschleger adds that the newest attraction has helped promote the idea of a full trail.
“Visitors are always looking to see what’s new. We have the capacity now with the addition of the Age of Steam Roundhouse being a new attraction to package it in a new way.”
Tickets are only available from October 12th-13th and 19th-20th.
The package runs $199, and Lautenschleger adds that the county hopes to see an influx of outside tourists.
“We’re really looking to drive a new demographic of visitor into Tuscarawas County. So we hope to see good results from [the ad campaign.]”
