Regional tourism officials take ‘fam tour’
Part of promoting Warren County’s tourism amenities is educating regional partners to know what we have here.
A familiarization tour – “fam tour” – was held earlier this week with two representatives from the Keystone Welcome Center at Pennsylvania Great Lake I-90 Welcome Center and Lumber Heritage Region executive director Holly Komonczi.
“I was excited when the I-90 Welcome Center reached out to us requesting a tour,” Warren County Visitors Bureau Executive Director Casey Ferry said.
“We’re happy to share the splendor of Warren County with anyone and everyone, but it’s especially great when the people who want the information want it so they can promote as well.”

The group also visited places in the city including the Warren County Historical Society, Struthers Library Theatre, Warren County Courthouse and the Warren Historic District.
“I was at a meeting recently when a representative from Lumber Heritage mentioned they wanted to come for a ‘fam tour,'” Ferry said. “In addition to the sightseeing, we got to share information, give helpful tips, and make new connections across multiple organizations.”
The tour also gave WCVB staff a different look at the county.
“It’s so fun to see Warren County through the eyes of a tourist,” Ferry said. “It’s something we make an effort to do on a daily basis, so to be able to spend the day hanging out with actual tourists was exciting.”
