Shores & Islands, Ohio
“Lake Erie Love” is just the beginning for Shores & Islands Ohio! Visitors surf this site to find every stunning shore and cant-miss island to visit. Beautifully displayed imagery can be found in the thoughtful design that includes an event calendar, blog, and a Crowdriff gallery to show off that #LakeErieLove from travelers and locals. With Simpleview’s seamless CRM integration, information about local businesses and places to stay are fed into the site, providing travelers with the most up-to-date information submitted by the DMO and its partners. Lastly, the site would not be complete without an Audioeye accessibility feature to provide and inclusive destination researching experience. Get your travel on in Ohio!

Visit Cook County: Naturally Unforgettable
This website design draws the eye to Cook County’s unforgettable nature with the creation of a map unlike any other in the area. Showing off a region is now as easy as single-page viewing of areas to visit, what you can see there, activities, and even a toggle where you can turn trail views on and off. The map combines function and beauty allowing the end user to seamlessly view the county in an easily digestible format with Simpleview CMS. Lastly, features like “Storm Season,” take the front row seat in Cook’s seasonal marketing that also includes “Dark Sky Season” and “Waterfall Season.” This also includes the “Leave No Trace” initiative in the outdoor-centric destination.
