Allamakee Economic Development and Tourism unveils new postcard

Allamakee County Economic Development & Tourism (ACED) unveiled a new postcard (pictured at right) at the ACED Annual Meeting hosted in New Albin Thursday, October 19.  The meeting attendees were challenged by ACED Director Val Reinke to mail the postcard to a friend or family member outside of Allamakee County with an invitation to visit.  Reinke commented, “Tourists and residents alike have inquired about a 'local' postcard and now we can finally offer one.”

This postcard was created to highlight and recognize Allamakee County’s top tourist locations, including Effigy Mounds National Monument (more than 80,000 visitors a year), Yellow River State Forest (more than 40,000 visitors a year), Driftless Area Scenic Byway (voted most scenic byway in Iowa) and Great River Road (36.2 miles through Allamakee County). This postcard design also matches the new display banners created for tourism and economic development events.

The postcards are available at ACED’s office located at 101 West Main in Waukon. Office hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. ACED encourages all residents to be an Allamakee County tourism ambassador by inviting friends and family to visit northeast Iowa as soon as they can.
