Happy New Year, 2019!

 

Happy New Year! We hope that 2019 has gotten off to great start (even if we are just a few days into the new year)! Happy New Year

We are excited to announce we have some great things coming up,  here at the Douglasville Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB)!

First off – we have brand new Douglasville Swag available in the Douglasville Welcome Center! How cute are these Dine. Explore. Vibe. Coffee Mugs featuring a scene from downtown Douglasville!? Grab yours for just $6.00! We also have brand new postcard designs, these are just .25 each or a pack of 8 (1 of each design for $2.00).

 

Next up we are excited to support “National Plan for Vacation Day”, January 29th! Did you know that across America last year, more than 705 million vacation days went unused? Research shows that individuals who plan are more likely to use all of their time off, take more vacation days at once and report greater levels of happiness at work and at home! Be sure to keep a watch on our Facebook page for more information on this great initiative!
