The West Volusia Tourism Advertising Authority recently announced a partnership with OutCoast.com, a digital magazine and travel blog that promotes Florida as an LGBTQ-inclusive destination, through a co-op program with VISIT FLORIDA.

Publisher Rachel Covello and her wife, Margaret (pictured on either side of WVTAA Executive Director Georgia Turner), visited the area April 7-10. Their visit included making pancakes at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill restaurant in DeLeon Springs State Park and dining at some of the area’s restaurants, a boat ride on St. Johns River Eco Tour, and visiting the Artisan Alley Farmers Market, the Stetson Mansion and the DeLand Craft Beer Festival.

They also met with members of DeLand Pride to discuss future events and promotions. They’ve already been posting on OutCoast’s social media platforms and will customize a West Volusia guide on the OutCoast site.
