Magical History Tour History

A GROOVY NEW WAY TO EXPLORE FLORIDA’S FAVORITE COASTAL HIGHWAY!
Roll Up to the Magical History Tour…
Almost everyone has heard of the wonders to be discovered on Route 66 and California’s Pacific Coast Highway, now it’s time to welcome an East Coast partner for these iconic highways; Florida’s A1A. For anyone unfamiliar with Florida A1A, its northern tip is on Amelia Island and its southern tip is on Key West and in between are roughly 600 miles of exhilarating coastline passing through some of the most extraordinary seaside communities on the planet; some well-known, others are simply treasures waiting to be discovered by new explorers of A1A.

Here’s a brief history of the second passport’s evolution…
June, 2017 we’re thrilled to announce that through the collaboration of the 10 fantastical destinations and three A1A-mazing sponsors you see pictured here, the Magical History Tour has officially kicked-off! It’s the second in a series of epic road trips designed to showcase the truly unique and authentic in and around Florida’s favorite coastal highway A1A! Grab a passport and start exploring; cheers to the places you’ll go, stories you’ll tell, and the A1A-mazing memories you’ll create that will last a lifetime!

 

 

May, 2017 we sent out an A1A-tomic THANK YOU to our first three extraordinary Sponsors: St. Augustine Distillery, Beaches, Bars and Bungalows, and Summer Crush Winery for helping us launch the second epic road trip designed to showcase the truly unique and authentic, in and around Florida’s favorite coastal highway A1A. Soon explorers will be creating A1A-mazing memories as they make their way from Amelia Island to Key West to experience an eclectic mix of uncommon destinations lovingly curated for their magical and historic significance. Passport to Explore A1A: Magical History Tour – coming to take you away before the end of May!

April, 2017 we drafted and shared the design for the inside passport cover where explorers will collect their custom stamps.

We thought you might enjoy a sneak peek at an inside section of the soon to be launched Passport to Explore A1A: Magical History Tour. Within a few short weeks, each of these boxes will be filled with the name of an A1A-mazing destination to explore and where you’ll collect your custom passport stamps. Oh the places you’ll go and stories you’ll tell… Passport to Explore A1A: Magical History Tour; coming to take you away this May!

March, 2017 we unveiled the final design for the passport cover.

We’re thrilled to share the final artwork design for the passport cover of the soon to be launched Passport to Explore A1A: Magical History Tour. During the next several weeks we’ll be identifying, visiting, and ultimately curating the destinations that will be included in the next epic adventure and along the way, we’ll be reaching out to area businesses whose generous advertising support as sponsors makes it possible to bring the passport tours to life without any costs whatsoever to the businesses selected to be featured on the tours; please help us spread the word! Passport to Explore A1A: Magical History Tour coming to take you away this Spring…
February 2017, we announced the official name of the new tour and shared a design idea for the passport cover.

Last month we announced that in a wild finish, less than two-tenths of one percent separated the popular vote that would determine the theme of our next epic passport adventure. Coming in first-place was ‘Weird/Unusual Things’ followed closely by the second-place winner ‘Historic Things’. Thrilled with both the first and second place finishers, we set out to combine both winning themes into one epic road trip and since ‘Historically Odd’ or ‘Oddly Historical’ didn’t seem like a fitting title for the new tour we decided to create one that captured the spirit of the upcoming adventure. So without further ado here’s a sneak peek at the artwork we’ve got in mind for the cover of the soon to be launched Passport to Explore A1A: Magical History Tour – coming to take you away, this Spring!

January, 2017 we announced the results of the winning theme.

Over the past couple of months, we invited explorers to take part in a Survey Monkey poll to help us choose the theme of the next Passport to Explore A1A epic adventure. Voting ended on 12/31 at midnight and in a wild finish, less than two-tenths of one percent separated the first-place winner ‘Weird/Unusual Things’ from the second-place winner ‘Historic Things’. Because we know we’re not the only ones who believe there’s really no point in having cake unless you can eat it too, we hope you’ll be A1A-ttracted to the idea of us combining the first and second place winning themes into one epic road trip that explores historically odd or oddly historical destinations (we’ll work on the name).

12-6-passport-voting-tour-2-300_pergaDecember, 2016 we put out a last call to explorers to determine the theme of the next epic adventure.

Calling all explorers! Sharing a final reminder that voting to choose the theme of the next epic passport adventure ends New Year’s Eve.
