I hope this gives you some different ideas of how to enjoy our fair city. Right now, the plan is to do a list like this every week…continuing to mix it up a bit with finds for all ages from kids to adults and in between.
If you like what I’m doing here, please encourage your favorite venues to advertise here on WOTM. We’ve been up and running for over 7 years and want to continue to do so. Encouragement from our followers is why we’re still here and for that I am truly thankful.
