NARROWSBURG – With the 2014 tourism season gearing up, the Upper Delaware Council (UDC) offers free supplies of visitor guides for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River Valley and the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway.
Local businesses, tourism promotion agencies, and attractions interested in stocking the brochures are invited to pick them up at the UDC office located at 211 Bridge St. in Narrowsburg, NY. The UDC publishes a “Visitor Information Map and Guide for Touring the Upper Delaware Scenic and
Recreational River: New York and Pennsylvania.”
This full-color brochure features a comprehensive 17 x 22-inch map of the 73.4-mile Upper Delaware River corridor, a listing of all public river accesses and their services, and a directory of businesses under the river recreation-related categories of Accommodations, Restaurants, Liveries and Campgrounds, and Bait & Tackle Shops.
The guide also offers information on river safety, recreation, boating, camping, fishing, hunting, eagle watching, emergency and agency contacts, travel orientation, and the services of the UDC non-profit organization founded in 1988 to represent the two states and local municipalities that border along the federally-designated Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
The Upper Delaware Scenic Byway, Inc. publishes a full-color brochure titled, “Meet us on the Byway: Charming. Historic. Natural.”, funded in part by a Federal Highway Administration grant facilitated by the New York State Scenic Byways Program of the NYS Department of Transportation (DOT).
It features individual maps and profiles of the eight byway communities – the Village of Hancock, Towns of Delaware, Cochecton, Tusten, Highland, Lumberland, and Deerpark, and the City of Port Jervis – located along New York State Route 97 in three counties.
