My Lone Pine Website Launched

California travelers to the scenic Lone Pine will now have a powerful new resource to explore, MyLonePine.com.

MyLonePine.com is a brand new website devoted to helpful tourist information for one of California’s best kept secrets: Lone Pine, California.

The site is a unique partnership between KIBS FM and KBOV AM with KHTS AM-1220, a radio station in Santa Clarita, California, located about three hours away from Lone Pine.

The radio outlets are combining resources to create a powerful website for tourists interested in traveling to the beautiful Lone Pine.

Just south of Lone Pine on the east side of the Sierra, the Interagency Visitor Center offers the best possible view of the breathtaking Mt. Whitney, known as the tallest mountain of the “lower 48” states.

For the more adventurous travelers, MyLonePine.com also offers valuable information about climbing the mountain, including the USDA checklist, information on required permits and directions.

Many people may not know about Lone Pine’s incredible history in the Hollywood film industry, which has been expertly preserved at the local Lone Pine Film History Museum.

Travelers can view the museum’s extensive collection of real movie costumes, cars, props, posters and other memorabilia used during filming in and around Lone Pine, from the early days of “Round Up” to the modern blockbusters of today such as “Iron Man.”

A download of the Movie Road Self-Guided Tour booklet is also available on the website, which gives travelers the chance to get a first-hand look at real shooting locations of many motion pictures filmed in the Alabama Hills of Lone Pine.

In addition to telling travelers everything they need to know about experiencing Lone Pine’s film history and Mt. Whitney, MyLonePine.com also offers a calendar of fun, family-friendly events so travelers can incorporate them into their plans.

Dining information, a business directory and information on a variety of family-friendly activities– like hiking, biking, camping, fishing, golfing and bird watching –is another convenient, easy to use feature of the website.

MyLonePine.com is an exciting new tool for California travelers to learn everything they need to know about planning their next trip to Lone Pine.
