SAN DIEGO—In an effort to provide a resource for Mission Beach and Pacific Beach vacationers, and promote the Mission Beach and Pacific Beach areas as a vacation destination, San Diego Sunset Vacation Rentals has begun publication of Mission Beach Magazine, announced San Diego Sunset President Will Holland.
“We wanted to accomplish two goals – draw vacationers to the Mission Beach and Pacific Beach areas, and to offer them a guide of things to do while they are here,” said Holland.
The third issue recently hit the stands, with 10,000 copies being distributed in a variety of ways. Distribution stands are placed throughout the area and partner business also distribute the magazine, according to Holland. “Each guest of San Diego Sunset Vacation Rentals gets a copy when they check in,” he added.
The Spring/Summer 06 issue of Mission Beach Magazine includes articles about area golf courses, Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo and Mission Trails Regional Park. Articles also give tourists information on charter fishing trips and a San Diego tour company.
“The map inside each is a great resource for visitors because it shows a detailed map of the Mission Beach and Pacific Beach areas,” Holland said. “The map also shows the popular bike path that takes you around Mission Bay, surf spots, grocery stores and trolley stops.”
The magazine also pictures and describes the 50-plus vacation rentals managed by San Diego Sunset Vacation Rentals. “The same information is available on San Diego Sunset Vacation Rentals web site, www.SanDiegoSunset.com, but a lot of people like to page through the magazine and read about the rentals, rather than surf the net,” Holland said.
Current and past issues of Mission Beach Magazine can also be viewed online at www.missionbeachmagazine.com. “As we grow as a business, we want to have the magazine grow also,” Holland said. “We really want to highlight the great vacation lifestyles of the area with supreme photography and informative stories.”
Holland encourages anyone who would like a copy of the magazine, or is interested in advertising, to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. “We have had a lot of very positive feedback on the magazine from both vacationers and area businesses,” he said.
