On Friday, January 4, 2018, the YCP RoadCrew went and visited the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau located at 60 East North Street, York, PA. There we met with YCP alumnus Patrick Bourque who graduated from YCP in 2013. Patrick explained that as a sales manager for the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau, his main goal is to sell the city of York as a destination to those that would be interested in coming here. He says that his one main selling point is that York is the middle point of a lot of destinations in the Mid-East Coast! A short drive and you could be in Lancaster, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C. or even New York City. Patrick also says that not many people understand that York is essentially a melting pot of everything many people are looking for in a destination; it has quality food, nightlife, a booming music and arts scene, history around every corner, and a community that is welcoming to newcomers.
One quote that I think beautifully sums up our time with Patrick was, “The value and education you get there (York College) was fantastic.”
