Revamped website features virtual tour guide
Just in time for the 2020 summer tourism season, the Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce and its branding partners have unveiled a redeveloped, visitor-friendly website.
Still located at baraboo.com, the site has been redesigned to serve visitors to the Baraboo Area. The Chamber’s partners in the Discover Real Baraboo branding campaign – the city of Baraboo, village of West Baraboo, Business Improvement District and Downtown Baraboo Inc. – revamped the website with help from designer Derrick Mayoleth of Skillet Creek Media.
“The website retains all its functions for members,” Chamber Executive Director Darren Hornby said. “But now the home page is geared toward the visitor who wants to know where to eat, where to shop, what to do and where to stay in the Baraboo Area.”
The website features suggested itineraries and blog posts promoting points of interest, as well as a business directory and general community information.
The website also is equipped with Visit Baraboo, a virtual tour guide visitors can access via baraboo.com or download as a mobile app. “We’ve wanted to put something like this in place for years,” said Nanci Caflisch, the Chamber’s secretary and former president. “We think visitors will love it, and our members will benefit.”
