The Colorado Tourism Office started a campaign to keep people from coming to Colorado. Using the hashtag #WaitingToCo and #WaitingToColorado, the Tourism Office encourages people to do outdoor activities at home rather than in Colorado due to the quarantine.
The Colorado Tourism Office (CTO) launched its first-ever campaign designed not to attract visitors to the state, but rather keep them pining for Colorado from the safety of their homes.
Some examples of activities are:
Roast marshmallows on your TV instead of a campfire
Rock Climbing can be done on the walls of your home instead of in Colorado
Rafting down rapids are no match for the stairs of your porch
Casting into your garage door
Hiking up the hill in your front yard
This campaign is the first of four phases. The next phase will highlight spots the Coloradoans can visit in their own state.
Jason, sorry to disappoint, but I’m not Jeff. I do write for Jeffsetter, though, to keep the blog active and have a space to share my thoughts and experiences. Jeff, while no longer active on the blog, is quite busy nowadays with life’s other adventures 😉
This is actually quite brilliant and funny. Take a cue, Hawaii Tourism Authority!
Hey Jeff! Been a while since B.A.C.O.N.!
@Howard. Denvers homeless problem has nothing on SF or LA’s. they are both way worse.
I went to Colorado for a couple days last week for fun. Everything was reopening. Not sure why they would roll out a campaign now? Governments always know best though!
Anyway, stayed mostly in Denver, and man, that city has a homeless problem… yikes.
Not the best look for the city.
