Visitors Bureau compiling special interest tour of hometown cravings in the Juniata Valley

LEWISTOWN –Everyone loves to eat. And the Juniata River Valley Visitors Bureau is asking what you love the most.

The Visitors Bureau has been building a library of special interest tours since 2013. There are currently 13 themed lists that can guide visitors and locals alike, from wineries, to murals, to greenhouses and more. This spring, the Visitors Bureau will offer a list of hometown cravings.

“We’re not creating a cookbook, but a list of restaurants and their specialties for visitors to discover,” JRVVB Executive Director Jenny Landis said. “We think locals may find this interesting, too, at least to people who like to try new foods.”

The Visitors Bureau has already asked Facebook friends for their suggestions, and recently decided to expand the request to everyone in both Mifflin and Juniata counties. Submissions are limited to one item from one restaurant in either Mifflin or Juniata county.

“There are so many different taste buds in the world, why would we limit this list to only what our office loves?” Landis said. “And we encourage college students, ex-patriates and professional travelers to share the one thing they just have to eat when they return to the Juniata River Valley.”

The deadline is Jan. 30. This is not a contest and there will be no prizes or recognition for people’s efforts. The Visitors Bureau retains all editing rights and does not guarantee that all submissions will be

included on the special interest tour.

To share a hometown craving, find the Juniata River Valley Visitors Bureau page on Facebook, send an email to Kasey Johnson at kjohnson@juniatarivervalley.org, or call Johnson at (717) 248-6713, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The complete collection of special interest tours are available at www.juniatarivervalley.org; paper copies are available at the Visitors Bureau at the Mifflin County Historic Courthouse, 1 W. Market St., Lewistown, and on racks at various locations in Mifflin and Juniata counties.
