The Ridgecrest Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has moved to new offices at 105 East Sydnor Avenue, Suite 201, in Ridgecrest. The new offices also host the Ridgecrest Regional Film Commission, and offer tourism and filming information.
Doug Lueck, executive director of the RACVB and film commissioner for the region, appreciates the hospitality of the local business owner who made the move to the new offices possible. Leuck and the RACVB are working with members of the local hospitality industry and government to create a Tourism Improvement District to fund tourism marketing for the area. TIDs have worked well in other California communities.
The Sun Runner Magazine has joined the RACVB in our ongoing efforts to promote responsible tourism initiatives throughout the California deserts.
