Well, we’ve reached the end of National Travel and Tourism Week and Visit Indiana Week. The celebration was a departure from years past due to the health crisis. But its timing coincided with some good news, as well.Last week, Indiana’s governor announced the plan to “reopen” the state. With the planned phased approach, non-essential businesses have begun to welcome customers back in their stores, restaurants are preparing to open at limited capacity, and a timeline is now in place for when other tourism businesses will start their seasons.Things will look a little different for our visitors this year. But we’re encouraged and heartened to see that brighter days are indeed on the horizon.And we’re excited to start welcoming you back to the area!
