(FLINT, Mich. – July 6, 2017) Several new attractions will headline the 5th Annual “Be a Tourist in Your Home Town” on July 15.
This year’s venues include stops at the Durant-Dort Factory One, Factory Two, Ferris Wheel Building, Kettering University’s GM Mobility Research Center and the new Treehouse at For-Mar Nature Preserve and Arboretum. In all, nearly three-dozen venues will participate in the one-day excursion that gives residents and non-residents alike the opportunity to experience some of the best of what the community has to offer – all for only $1.
Presented by the Flint & Genesee Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), the event takes place July 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., from its hub at the Chamber offices in the Mott Foundation Building, 519 S. Saginaw St.
“Tourists” purchase passports that grants access to more than two dozen venues throughout Flint. The passports are also valid for a 10-percent discount on food and soft drink purchases at a dozen restaurants in downtown Flint. Complimentary transportation between attractions is provided by co-sponsor Mass Transportation Authority (MTA) on designated MTA “Tourist” buses.
“This is a fantastic event, and a great way to get re-acclimated with Flint and Genesee County,” said CVB Director DeAndra McCain. “It’s a chance to see some of the fun things that community has to offer as well as an opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the area businesses or organizations that are helping to move our region forward.”
