Mahoning County Convention Bureau launches new website, adds features

The Mahoning County Convention and Visitors Bureau is announcing the launch of its newly redesigned website, http://www.youngstownlive.com.  The website is was redesigned to be mobile friendly and now offers easy-to-navigate functionality.

The site’s content is organized by “Events,” “Visit,” “Stay” and “Dine” tabs and is intended to assist visitors to Youngstown and Mahoning County and local residents.

The website’s expanded listings provide event details with website links and Google Map information. In addition, the site now includes local community events for the month.

“We hope our Events pages will become a great resource, not only for our visitors, but for local residents as well. We want our website to become the “go-to” source for information on what’s happening throughout Mahoning County, said Linda Macala, executive director.

The Visit tab includes information on local attractions, golf courses, wineries, performing arts, parks and recreation, family fun, shopping, sports and visitor information.  Local hotels and inns/bed & breakfast are organized by geographic area as well as by name on the Stay page.  The Dine page highlights the flavor of our local restaurants in Youngstown and Mahoning County, as well as the familiar tastes of national chain restaurants located here.

A highlight of the website is a new short promotional video for Youngstown & Mahoning County featuring award-winning actor Ed O’Neill, world-boxing champion Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, fashion designer Nanette Lepore, and Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel and first lady Ellen Tressel.

The website also provides social-media integration and direct links to the CVB’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube pages, which can be followed @YoungstownLive. Visitors to the site can also download a Visitors Guide, sign-up for a monthly e-newsletter, and contact the CVB.
