BG Convention Visitors Bureau
It's one of those days where we're already thinking about lunch. Our stomach feels like we could eat an entire Chubby Checker + sides from Easystreet Cafe. 🥪

Could we really? No....

Are we still gonna try? Most definitely. 😋
Today is #ShopForTravelDay! Shop for Travel Day celebrates the technology that allows us to plan for our upcoming trips.

You can celebrate by making a list of places you want to go, shop travel sites (visitbgohio.org and visitnorthwestohio.com are great for day trip ideas), look up travel bloggers, destinations, and experiences on social media, or ask your friends about their favorite trips.

It's never too early to think about your next travel adventure.
We're currently in the process of moving locations! As we were cleaning, we found this blast from the past from our I-75 co-op.

Around 2007ish, we teamed up with @toledocvb, @visitfindlay, and @visitgreaterlima to promote the I-75 corridor to visitors at various shows and conferences!

This is a tablecloth and set of flags that we would often take to shows and use for display. Not pictured is a set of bags and stickers that we would use when giving out information.
Tomorrow (January 8th) is the first 'Free First Friday' of 2021! Free First Friday is when admission to the @woodcountymuseum is 100% FREE. Free First Friday happens the first Friday of every month. Visit the Wood County Museum and check out their wonderful exhibits! #ThinkBGThursday
Sushi from Ninja is a great way to start the new year! You can dine-in or call 419-819-4313 to place an order for pick up.
