The Passport Program and Our Partnerships The “Passport” contains short informational pieces, points-of-interest, and links for La Paz County and its communities and regional facilities: Bouse, CRIT, Cibola/Ehrenberg, McMullen Valley (Brenda, Salome, Hope, Vicksburg, Wenden), Parker, Quartzsite, La Paz Regional Hospital, and La Paz County Fair. In addition, there is a comprehensive listing of community events and things-to-do in each community for each month during the season. The Passport Program is totally supported by “partnerships” with local government, local businesses, local organizations, and individuals who make annual contributions/grants to support the continuation of the Passport Program. Our Partners benefit through the 25,000 Passport-Tourism/Hospitality Brochures that are distributed regionally from October through midMarch. The Tourism Team also contracts with Certified Folder, a nationwide visitor information distribution company, which has brochure racks at diverse tourist locations. In 2018 we placed an ad in the “Certified Colorado River Brochure,” with over 100,000 distribution throughout Arizona and California at 998 sites, The “Certified Grand Canyon Route 66 Brochure” (distributed at 1332 sites) and, the distribution of Passport Brochures to all Welcome Centers in Arizona, the Ontario Mills Regional Center, and Barstow, California Welcome Center.

The La Paz Regional Tourism Team Late in 2011, leaders within the La Paz area partnered with APS Corporation embarking on a project to develop a regional economic development plan: Focused Future II. One of the four key strategies was to link all Chambers of Commerce and C.R.I.T for joint promotion, networking and regional Tourism marketing - and so was born the La Paz Regional Tourism Team. Welcome to the 2019/2020

Passport to Adventure. The Passport provides visitors a full listing of events, places of interest and other information throughout La Paz County. “The La P “The of az C S Town Quar you. uperviso ounty B rs o I we Council tzsite welc ard take We enco lcome an om u a La you d rang dvantag rage yo es e of u to to e of Enjoy Paz C activ t the ounty. ities desert a he wide diver and s nd w m pres oth Quar e activit any en a ies i tzsite Adve ted in T er attrac ter n The , ti h n Arizo home of wint ture!
