CD features South Georgia stories

December 10, 2002

Americus - Three South Georgia counties are hoping to boost tourism with an innovative gift idea this Christmas. Sumter, Dooly, and Macon Counties joined together to create a passbook guide and CD. The CD is a driving tour featuring 13 stories about historic places and attractions in the area.

The CDs' producers are hoping it will turn day trips to Andersonville or Plains into overnight stays and an economic boost to the region. Mark Grimes, GSW Business Center Director, said "Somebody driving from Vienna to Americus popping CD in and saying sounds interesting. Let's go see that."

 The CDs are $2 and are available at the Montezuma, Vienna and Americus Welcome Centers. Passbooks are free.
