It's tourism week in Illinois and a couple of local leaders are touting various hot spots in DeWitt County for you to check out.
Marian Brisard is the Executive Director of the Clinton Chamber of Commerce and explains there are a couple of unique businesses locally that tend to be very popular among those from outside of DeWitt County. She points to the La Tea Da Tea Room and the Sunset Inn and Suites as destinations you just don't see in a lot of places.
The DeWitt County Museum is likely the landmark DeWitt County is most recognized aside from Clinton Lake. Joey Woolridge is the Director of the Homestead, which now serves as the DeWitt County Museum and she says the collection of publications and artifacts by CH Moore has given the community a lot to hold on to from a historical perspective.
Clinton Lake and the Looking For Lincoln Wayside Exhibits are also very popular in Clinton and DeWitt County along with the Barn Quilts tours.
Tune in tomorrow on Regional Radio News to learn more about those.
