Prescott Rocks! I think we could have a lot of fun putting together a series of short videos on why Prescott Rocks! By short, I mean three (3) minutes tops. I would like to get people to advocate for their passion(s), whatever it might be. Maybe you are an outdoors enthusiast (hiking, bicycling, kayaking, rock climbing, etc.). Maybe you are a “foodie” who wants to talk about our restaurants. On the other hand, you might like antiquing or ballroom dancing – the point is, Prescott Rocks! In many ways and a great way to convey that to potential visitors is from a first-person perspective via a short video. I did not mention many other things such as the Worlds Oldest Rodeo, all our museums, our galleries. Whiskey Row, Courthouse Plaza – but you get the idea. If you think this sounds like something you want to get involved in, please let me know. Here is a link to an interesting blog post on these type of videos from the T4 Travel Technology & Tourism Trends blog:
