“We get new customers who love the fun of culinary tourism and arrive here, with Culinary Adventure Map in hand! Last fall, a couple told us they were traveling with three other couples on their second
visit to the Peninsula. On the first trip, they used the Map to choose their destinations, and had so much fun they had to return with friends. On their second trip onto the LOOP, they were already planning for their third trip!” – Julie & David McCulloch, Owners Elevated Ice Cream Co. & Candy Shop

Thanks to our four county regional tourism partners, the Culinary Adventure Map has been served up and has been feeding great press! Here’s just some of the Good News!
A) Following the successful OCL Wine Reception & “Cooking Up Business Knowledge Luncheon” recently at Little Creek Resort & Casino, keynoter and accomplished travel writer Sue Frause, @suefrause, toured the eastern edge of the LOOP via an early release copy of the new Culinary Adventure Map. Then she wrote about it! Nearly a dozen OCL member locations from Port Townsend to Kamilche were featured in her wildly popular – and viral – article, posts & Tweets.
Of all the delicious stories and sights Sue featured: Chimacum Corner Farmstand, Quilcene Village Store, Geoduck Restaurant & Lounge, Hama Hama Seafood, Finnriver, Fireside Restaurant at The Resort at Port Ludlow. (And we know she started at the Ravenscroft Inn. Join OCL and I’ll see if we can get her to update her still popular article!) Thanks to her good news scores of map requests and full article views have helped OCL members kick-off the peak season of Peninsula culinary tourism! Yum! Read all about it.
B) Wine Press NW Magazine features a cover article “72 Hours in the Olympic Peninsula” where writer Andy Perdue and photographer Eric Neurath followed the LOOP featuring: Walter Dacon Wines, Hoodsport Winery, Mosquito Fleet Winery, Westport Winery, Marrowstone Vineyards, Wind Rose Cellars, Olympic Cellars, Camaraderie Cellars, Harbinger Winery, Cideries: Alpenfire and Eaglemount and Finnriver . Where to eat: Bella Italia, Alderbrook Resort, Alder Wood Bistro, Silverwater Café. Where to stay: Bishop Victorian Hotel, Manresa Castle, Lake Crescent Lodge, Fort Worden! (Whew! You of course are encouraged to eat and experience the LOOP as a slightly more leisurely pace!)
The uber trendy South Sound Magazine (demographics: 30,000 subscribers, age 25+, with House Hold Income of $150,000+) a five-page equivalent ad value at $3,250/page – full-color photo spread of the Culinary Adventure Map!
Where did photo journalist Christine Cox get her story lead? Here’s what Christine herself says; “… The Culinary Loop Tour was amazing, educational and so much fun. It was a very impressive tour… Thanks again for the opportunity.”
Christine highlighted: Michael’s Seafood & Steakhouse, Hama Hama Oyster, Olympic Cellars, Ajax Cafe, Elevated Ice Cream, FinnRiver Cidery, Chimacum Corner Farmstand, Alpenfire, Nash’s Organic Produce Pane d’ Amore, Olympic Cellars
This articles success provided a dedicated follow-up coverage of Eaglemount Wine and Cider in the March issue of South Sound Magazine (In just two months Eaglemount Wine & Cidery enjoyed many lifetimes worth of Sunset Mag. page impressions!)
