By edhat staff

The City of Santa Maria is offering $100 vouchers for tourists to visit the area for a minimum of two nights.

Travelers who stay in local hotels now through March 31 will receive a voucher that can be used at wineries, breweries, restaurants, and attractions in the Santa Maria Valley.

The promotion was created by “Visit Santa Maria Valley” and launched on Thursday. According to the website, it’s already sold out, but there is a waiting list.

“Our $100 stimulus offer is currently sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still plan a visit! Explore lodging, dining and attractions and start planning your next getaway,” the website states.

Under a header of “Do More for Less in Santa Maria Valley,” the website boasts the area has nearby beaches, beautiful hotels, and wineries for the budget-conscious traveler. There are 34 wine tasting rooms within a 30-minute drive as well as hiking, golfing, art exploration, and birdwatching, the promotion states.

An area map showing attractions, dining, and arts includes the Pismo Beach, Nipomo, Orcutt, Lompoc, Los Alamos, and Solvang cities as well as Santa Maria.

The website also asserts businesses and attractions are following the state’s guidelines for a safe reopening due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We expect that all visitors to the area will do their part to respect our region and our state by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask and washing their hands regularly,” the website states.

    Seriously? Open up or stay closed. Make up your minds! Now they’re paying people to travel? Seriously messed up leaders and public health officials!
