New website highlights all Schoharie offers

ABC Creative Group recently refreshed Schoharie County’s tourism website,, with cutting-edge and mobile-friendly updates. The Schoharie County Planning and Development domain directs tourists to numerous destinations in the county, inviting them to find “Something Unexpected,” according to a media release.

“We are proud to launch this site to promote all the great things that Schoharie County has to offer,” says ABC Owner and Creative Director Travis Bort. “Since most travelers do not pay attention to what county they’re in, we focused more on the ‘areas’ within Schoharie that may be more familiar to travelers. We concentrated on the quaint towns and villages in each area of the county.”

The website update coincides with the ABC-created “Something Unexpected” tourism campaign. Users can use an interactive map discover all the unique places within the county and use a complete listing to find accommodations, activities and dining.
