Worcester encourages tourism businesses to apply now for attraction signs

Snow Hill, Maryland (October 20, 2023) – The Maryland Statewide Tourist Area Corridor (TAC) Signing Program application period is open now to November 30, and Worcester County Tourism and Economic Development (WCTED) officials urge local qualifying businesses and points of interest to apply.

TAC signs are installed along selected state and county roads to guide motorists to Maryland recreational facilities, historical attractions, and cultural treasures. New businesses as well as those that have applied in the past must reapply for consideration.

“Attraction signs drive visitors to our downtown areas and points of interest they may not otherwise know about,” WCTED Director Melanie Pursel said. “It gets residents and visitors alike out and about exploring the county. We work closely with a consultant specifically assigned to Worcester to get the word out to the communities and to be sure a wide variety of points of interest are included in the corridor signs.”

TAC, a Maryland Department of Transportation program, is implemented by the State Highway Administration.
