Pensacolas Gulf Islands National Seashore Named Best Florida Beach

Pensacola, Florida (PRWEB) March 19, 2015

The Pensacola Bay Area just added one more prestigious award to a long list of accolades. “USA TODAY” recently announced that the Gulf Islands National Seashore won the title of Best Florida Beach in its 10Best Readers Choice poll.

The Pensacola Bay Area, in particular the Gulf Islands National Seashore, has a special character and beauty of its own, and it’s great to have “USA TODAY” confirm what past visitors and locals already know, said Steve Hayes, president of Visit Pensacola.

Online votes from the public determined the outcome of the award. Visit Pensacola launched an aggressive social media campaign to showcase the Gulf Islands National Seashores beautiful soft-white sands and emerald-green waters, an effort spearheaded by Communications Manager Brooke Fleming.

The campaign included dispersing more than 10,000 vote daily cards, purchasing the URL http://www.beachvote.com to make voting for the National Seashore quick and easy, taking to the airwaves to urge locals to vote online and organizing a social media crusade. Visit Pensacola enlisted the help of several celebrities with local ties to help promote the campaign, such as two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson and World Wrestling Entertainment stars Scott Armstrong, Roman Reigns, the Uso Brothers and Brian G. James.

Im so grateful for the incredibly supportive community we have here in the Pensacola Bay Area, says Fleming. Not only have our locals been voting, but we also have very loyal visitors who were taking the time out of their day to vote, as well.

“USA TODAY” launched the campaign to select the Best Florida Beach on February 19. A panel of Florida travel experts scoured the Sunshine State’s 663 miles of beach to narrow their top 20 choices for the contest. The public was encouraged to vote daily until the campaign ended on Monday, March 16.

This award continues the areas string of national recognition. TripAdvisor’s annual Travelers’ Choice Awards for best beaches was announced in mid-February and Pensacola Beach ranked No. 5 out of the top 25 best beaches in the United States. The American Planning Association named downtowns Palafox Street one of the 10 Great Streets in America and CNN Travel named the Flora-Bama and LandShark Landing at Margaritaville Beach Hotel two of the 50 Best Beach Bars in the World in 2013.

Central Holidays Launches Group Sales for 2015 Passion Play of Sordevolo in Italy – Tour Operation Named Exclusive Ticket Distributor for 2015 Performances

Moonachie, NJ (PRWEB) January 31, 2014

Central Holidays is offering an exciting opportunity for travel agents to enhance their faith tourism offerings by adding the 2015 Passion Play of Sordevolo, Italy to their line-up of spiritual tours. As part of an alliance with the town of Sordevolo, Central Holidays has been named the exclusive ticket distributor for the 2015 Passion Play which will take place from June through September 2015. Group tour packages that include tickets to the production are available now.

Similar in tradition to Oberammergau that brings thousands of travelers to Germany every 10 years, the Passion Play of Sordevolo presents the final days of Christ and is performed every five years against the backdrop of Piedmonts Sacred Mountains. Sordevolos prime location places the event in the heart of an Italian pilgrimage site and makes combining the theatrical experience in Sordevolo with vacations to larger citiessuch as Rome, Florence, or Venicesimple. The centrality of Piedmont enables Central Holidays to design an array of inclusive and diverse travel packages that can be seamlessly added to an agents or group planners product range.

We are excited to offer this spectacular travel experience to our agents. For over 40 years, Central Holidays has been regarded as the Italy expert. We are proud of the trust travel agents place in us. The Passion Play of Sordevolo gives us a chance to enhance our already substantial Italy expertise with something brand new in a growing tourism field, says Gianni Miradoli, CEO of Central Holidays Travel Group.

Currently tickets are on sale for group travel only; individual travel and ticket sales will open to the public in January 2015. Packages can be customized by Central Holidays destination specialists to cater to the specific needs of these groups or individuals.

We see this as a wonderful community building experience. In fact its the residents of Sordevolo themselves who come together to stage this event. You wont see professional actors or production crews, says James Zitani, Vice President of Sales at Central Holidays Travel Group. While the story is especially meaningful to the faithful, the magic of seeing live theater, especially of this magnitude, can be universally captivating. I encourage everyone to visit passiontours.net to see a preview of the play as well as the stunning countryside that surrounds Sordevolo. Family reunions, incentive trips, and cultural exchange can enjoy the Passion Play of Sordevolo and Piedmont.

For additional details, to plan a group trip, or to book a package that feature Passion Play of Sordevolo Italy, or to watch a video about the 2010 production, travel agents and tour operators should call Passion Tours by Central Holidays at 800.539.7095 or visit passiontours.net.

History of the Passion Play of Sordevolo

Since the early 1800s, residents of the tiny hamlet of Sordevolo in Piedmont Italys Biella province have joined together to stage a grand production of the Passion of Christ. Impressive, unique and moving, more than 400 of Sordevolos residents transform the ancient city streets into a reconstructed corner of Jerusalem circa 33 A.D. This production pays close attention to every detail, from chariots to Roman armor, and depicts the Passion of the Christ from the moment Jesus entered Jerusalem to the Resurrection. Performed in Italian, it is a major production staged and acted by Sordevolos local population; many of the acting roles are passed down from generation to generation.
