Stonington Borough merchants launch new website
Stonington — The Stonington Borough Merchants Association has introduced a new website designed to increase awareness of borough attractions to those planning trips to the area.
Dessa Lea Productions of Stonington designed the new website located at www.StoningtonBoroughCT.com to increase awareness of area attractions.
According to a news release announcing the new website, the design features a more contemporary look with new graphics, photographs and editorial content. There are listings of events and sections containing information for both visitors and residents. There’s also a blog section with posts on food and drink, best of, "houses we love," borough faces and a merchant spotlight.
The homepage features a photo of a bicyclist riding down Water Street with the phrase: “Welcome to Stonington Borough, Connecticut’s Oldest Village.”
Below it is this: “Rich in history and loaded with small town charm, Stonington Borough is not like other coastal destinations. The pace is slower. It's a bit quieter. There's less traffic. It's a place where a leisurely stroll down Water Street, past eclectic shops, art galleries, boutiques and restaurants, leads you to a magnificent sunset and an ancient stone lighthouse.”
In another section it adds, “If a quintessential New England getaway without the crowds is what you're looking for, Stonington Borough is just the escape you need.”
“The Borough is a one-of-a-kind East Coast destination that has it all, from spectacular views and waterside dining to intimate cafes and boutique shops to get lost in,” said Deborah Norman, owner of Grand & Water Antiques. “It’s exciting to share our charm with even more visitors who now have a better opportunity to find us, whether they’re planning a Connecticut coastline vacation months in advance or randomly searching options with their devices on the go.”
A celebration for the site will be held Oct. 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Grand & Water Antiques, 135 Water St.
