Have you ever ‘pretended’ to be a tourist in your own city? Try it out. Earlier today, I paid a visit to the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce. I was actually going in to give them some flyers for an upcoming event and started talking to the secretary-Dee.
Wow, I was probably in there for 15 minutes but left out with a handful of information. And I have to put in a plug for the upcoming Hot Air Balloon festival next week http://www.gulfcoastballoonfestival.com/
During my visit I decided I’m going to ‘act’ like a tourist. See I live on the beach so really everyday is like a vacation. However, I’ve never done any of the tourist activities; like visit the local museum, the zoo, pay a arm, leg and two ribs for a meal or groceries-okay I may skip that one. So my goal this month is to map out my tourist schedule. I’m excited. So I challenge you to see your city in the eyes of a ‘visitor’. You may fall in love with your city all over again.
Until next time…
