    10-17-13 Freeland can promote itself as a tourist destination

    When I first moved to Whidbey, I remember people saying that Freeland was the retail hub of South Whidbey.  It certainly is easier to find more of the basic needs here in this location than anywhere else on the south end.  The more that people see Freeland as this business center, the more it benefits any business within the community.

    But, I see a new, additional identity emerging.  I believe Freeland can begin marketing itself as a tourist destination.

    Next time you have a visitor bring them for a walk around Freeland.  In a few blocks, you can explore some incredible antique shops, a new art gallery and gift shop, a terrific wine shop, a pharmacy that can easily pass for a jewelry and glass art gallery, a wonderful wild bird store, plus all of the other retail businesses and restaurants. Hop in the car and in less than 10 minutes, you can show guests Double Bluff Beach, South Whidbey State Park or have a peaceful visit and look at Holmes Harbor from Freeland Park.

    And, any tourist who comes to Freeland to see the many stores and sites is also likely to buy a meal at one of the restaurants and make other purchases from the nearby stores.

    So, in addition to its reputation as a retail center, Freeland can help build its business community by promoting itself as a tourist destination.
