Foothills Tourism Website Launch (@ 5:41)

Foothills Tourism isn't just for bringing more people to the area but also a great opportunity for locals to experience more of what their own backyard has to offer.  

Yesterday, the new organization launched their official new website at and I must say, it is a MUST VISIT!  

Explore all different categories of what the area has to offer you based off your own interests!  

From Family Fun to Agritourism, to Sports and Recreation opportunities in the area.  I guarantee you will find something new that you will want to check out.  

Not to be left out for you "Foodies" out there, available is a listing of some of the best food establishments that are a must try.

As always, if there is anything that you would like me to include in my updates, just let me know by sending me a message on Facebook or sending me an email.  I always want to keep you up to date on the latest happening in our community.

All the best,
