ELBURNâ€”The St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau wants to promote Elburn attractions in order to draw more tourists to the area.
â€œWe’d like to bring visitors to Elburn and see them stay at St. Charles hotels,â€ said Egolf during Monday’s Elburn Development Committee meeting.
If Elburn officials agree to participate in a joint program, the St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau will list Elburn attractions in its tourist guides at no cost to the village.
Development Committee members like the proposal and recommended that the Village Board approve it.
â€œI think it’s an excellent idea,â€ Committee member and trustee Jeff Walter said. â€œIt will be some promotion we don’t have now.â€
Among the Elburn entities Egolf has identified to list in the Bureauâ€™s publications are Amazing Grace Antiques, Heritage Prairie Farm, Ream’s Elburn Market, the Metra station, the Great Lakes Leadership Campus, Elburn Days and the St. Charles Sportsmen’s Club.
Egolf said the St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau works with the Illinois Bureau of Tourism, which would include Elburn’s attractions in state visitors guides.
The St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau is supported by city and state funding.
