ASHEVILLE, NC (February 27, 2012) — Festiva Hospitality Group is announcing the publication of the most recent issue of Journeys magazine. Journeys is an online magazine produced by Festiva’s Corporate Communications department on a quarterly basis. In its seventh issue, Journeys features two fantastic vacation destinations to give Festiva members and guests inspiration and ideas for their own vacations. Festiva’s newest resort, Celebration World Resort in Kissimmee, Fla., and the area’s attractions are featured in this issue along with the FTX exchange destination of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
While central Florida may be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, Festiva’s communications director Sara Little traveled a bit off the beaten path to seek out attractions other than the area’s famous theme parks. From Fantasy of Flight and Bok Tower Gardens south of Kissimmee to Winter Park and the Polasek Museum & Gardens just north of Orlando and several other hot spots in between, this issue of Journeys highlights lesser known attractions in the area that are entertaining, educational and often amazing.
Puerto Vallarta is a hugely popular vacation destination in Mexico, and with the ubiquitous all-inclusive resorts that offer everything you need, it’s almost too easy to stay right where you are for your entire trip. Aaron Hodges, communications staff, made a point to get out and about in the area surrounding the Grand Mayan resort. He found adventure with a Canopy River Zip Line tour, art with famous local sculptures and Galeria Pacifico, fantastic local food at Café de Olla, and vibrant culture along the Malecon, proving that it’s well worth it to step outside of your comfort zone and soak up the experiences of all that Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta have to offer.
In addition to the featured destinations, Journeys also includes several articles for Festiva’s members including Frequently Asked Questions from a member services supervisor, recipes, seasonal health tips, a member point of view story, featured member vacation photos from our annual contest and more.
Journeys is produced at no cost to Festiva’s members and is one way Festiva is communicating news and updates about our properties and the company while featuring some of our favorite things about our fantastic resort destinations. Journeys is available on our home page at www.festiva.travel and all previous issues are available in the Press Room of our website.
