Aug. 1, is deadline to update your listings for the Alabama Vacation Guide & Calendar of Events

It’s that time of year again…time to make sure your accommodation or attraction is up-to-date and listed correctly in Alabama’s official travel and tourism guide—Sweet Home Alabama.

The 2014 Sweet Home Alabama Vacation Guide and Calendar of Events has grown over the years into an impressive, coffee table-style reference book that is both informative and beautiful to flip through.

The well-crafted articles, striking photography and detailed listings make it not only a resource but a pleasure to review. We are proud of how far it has come, and we are excited about this year’s guide being our best yet.

This year, another exciting development has been the creation of an online, electronic database listings update process. Never again will you have to sort through numerous mailings and mail back your listings update or confirmation.

Now, you will be able to follow a few simple steps to confirm, update or add a listing:
• Simply log on to the new website,, and either confirm, change or add your listing right then and there.
• Our new online listings process will save you and the state a great deal of time and money.   It is much more efficient, and we hope you will appreciate this step we have taken to make this advancement.
• You can review or download the “quick start” guide which walks you through a few easy steps for updating or confirming your existing listing at this site:
• Please take a look at the quick start guide and visit the website to update your listing by August 1.
Updating your listing will take only a few minutes.   We hope you appreciate this easy and efficient process!

We look forward to featuring your organization, accommodation, attraction or resource center in the 2014 Sweet Home Alabama Vacation Guide and Calendar of Events.
