Have you ever found yourself in the situation when a friend from out of town asks, "Hey, what's there to do around here, anyway?" It's a common thing we've all experienced. What's your usual first thought? Do you go with the tried and true, "Just head to Chicago?"
We've all done it, and I've been guilty of it myself. I'm not proud to admit it, but it seems like I didn't even know the region before I started visiting some of the great places it has to offer. Arboretums and gardens, winding brewery trails and fun centers are just the tip of the iceberg. Recently I had gone on a #FAMTour with the South Shore CVA and some fellow workers in the travel and tourism industry.
