Destination Management

We love where we live!

Our vision is to…

Inspire visitors to explore the Adirondack Frontier with the hope they’ll become locals. We believe that all it takes is a visit for people to catch onto the “Franklin County way”. We strive to help every visitor feel like a local.

It’s through our work at the intersection of businesses, communities, and a destination that Franklin County can have a prosperous, resilient, and locally-rooted future.

Our Destination Management goals are:

• Maintain Public Health

• Benefit County Taxpayers

• Support the Local Economy

• Implement Strategic Marketing

• Plan for the Future

Sustainable Development

Tourism impacts community concerns such as the environment, housing, workforce, broadband, and transportation. FCEDC is uniquely positioned to deliver a complete destination management program that is compatible with overall community goals.

Countywide Model

Franklin County is best served by a unified, countywide tourism brand that gives us a strong voice to celebrate and promote all of the communities and assets in the county, and inspire visitors to Explore the Adirondack Frontier. This approach strengthens the identity of each community while unifying them under one brand, and leverages the assets across the county to benefit each community and provide maximum value for marketing expenditures.

Supporting tourism-related activities of businesses, organizations, and events in Franklin County through matching grant programs helps businesses grow and our potential as a destination expand. These programs foster creativity and extend the reach of our marketing efforts.
