Tryon combines websites for new look
Published 10:17 pm Sunday, July 28, 2013
Tryon has combined its visitor’s website and government website into one that can be found at www.exploretryon.com.
The new site’s main page says, “Welcome to the most delightful place you’ve perhaps never heard of: Tryon, NC.”
The town worked with Groovy Web Design and town staff to create the new site.
The website is designed to be easier to navigate and a place to find events, interact with town government and find where to shop, eat and visit.
Tryon’s logos of “Nearly perfect, always Tryon,” and “the friendliest town in the south” are both themed as well as town and government history.
The new website combined the information contained at www.exploretryon.com and www.tryon-nc.com.
The home page includes historical pictures and a brief summary about the town as well as links for “where to stay,” “eat & drink,” “see & do,” “learn more,” “how to get here” and a “blog.”
Highlighted at the top of the home page are an events calendar and a link to the government page, “Tryon Local Government.”
The government page includes the town’s boards and committees, the town’s code of ordinances, the town’s services, forms and contacts, among other links.
“Tryon is located in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and is approximately midway from the vibrant cities of Asheville and Charlotte, NC and Greenville and Spartanburg, SC,” states the home page. “Tryon is known for its wonderful people, outdoor activities, mild climate, small town shops and great restaurants.
Incorporated in 1885 at the height of American railroad expansion, a thriving artisan village emerged in Tryon with a strong equestrian tradition and a nationally known tourism. The equestrian emphasis yet remains strong in our community long since the days when Tryon served as the training ground for the US Olympic equestrian teams. Standing at the heart and geographical center of Tryon’s downtown is Morris, the Tryon Horse, a globally-famed icon, rising an impressive twenty-two hands high, who has presided over downtown festivities as the town mascot since 1928. With its unique natural beauty and delightful downtown, Tryon is a great place to live, work and visit.”
Users attempting to visit www.tryon-nc.com are now directed to the Tryon Local Government section of www.exploretryon.com.
