That’s marketing-speak for “familiarization tour,” which is something you do to introduce someone to your market. Various cultural entities of the White River State Park district of Indianapolis hosted a group of Midwestern travel writers this week. There should be an article soon on the United Airlines website, talking about “Indianapolis for Families,” and hopefully we’ll “get some ink” in other publications such as AAA’s “Home and Away,” the Bloomington Herald Times’ home magazine, or who-knows-what. How else will folks find out what cool things are here on Indy’s Downtown Canal?
The L.S. Ayres Tea Room put on a tasty show for the writers, with famous chicken pot pie and chicken velvet soup, which are also featured in the cookbooks that were presented at each place setting.
