Monhollen said the kiosk will have information on area hotels, attractions and other items of interest.
“Everything there is to see and do in Corbin,” Monhollen said noting it will also have a QR code that will bring up the Corbin Tourism website, and have all of that information for visitors to take with them on their phones.
“It will also have a guest book, so we can keep track of where people are coming from,” Monhollen said.
Monhollen said Corbin Tourism recently rented billboard space on southbound Interstate 75 in Laurel County.
The billboard, near the weigh station, has the tagline, “Experience Downtown Corbin.”
It instructs interested visitors to take Exit 25.
“A lot of our traffic is people headed south,” Monhollen said in explaining why that location was chosen for the billboard.
