Tacoma takes over Portland

As part of a multi-media, month-long campaign targeted at Portland, Travel Tacoma brought a little piece of Tacoma to Portlanders - 100 little pieces to be exact.

Travel Tacoma hid 100 glass coasters that were hand-made by the Tacoma Glass Blowing Studio that said: "Made with love, in Tacoma, Pierce County, WA." Those who found the coasters were entered to win overnight packages.

More than 350 folks visited the Travel Tacoma + Pierce County booth in Pioneer Courthouse Square, in the heart of downtown Portland. 

The glass scavenger hunt was only part of a month-long campaign, aimed at driving Portland visitors to spend one or two nights in Pierce County and included outdoor and digital advertising.

As a result, traffic was up in Oregon more than 100 percent during the campaign, and website search results have shown a significant increase in demand from the Portland metro market.

What to do this weekend: 1/20 - 1/22

Happy Friday, Pierce County!
 
This time of year one of my favorite things to do is try something new and creative. The cloudy skies make being inside so appealing, but I don't want to just sit around indoors all weekend! Luckily, scattered throughout Pierce County there are plenty of creative enterprises who can help artistically challenged individuals like myself create something to display in my home, drink my morning coffee out of, or even give as a gift to a friend with an upcoming birthday!
