I'm big into travel and roadside Americana and am always looking for info on places to go. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing a swap where we would pick a city (either our own or just a travel destination we love) and make maybe like a brochure or something plus a little craft, maybe a postcard or button or something representing the place? We could swap info like best reastaurants or tacky touristy stuff not to be missed. For example I live in Central florida, but instead of disney I'd recommend places like the serpentarium outside of St. Cloud or Gatorland in Kissimmee, plus a few good restaurants and shops...especially crafty shops.

 I would like to do it so we'd each get a variety of cities, so maybe we would each do multiples. Just a random thought.

That sounds great to me!  I live in Saint Louis, MO.  I love to travel and this would be perfect to add to my travel books and brochures.

places to avoid with an explanation would be cool too for sure.

This seems like such a fun thing -- the only thing I hesitate about is that I can't imagine any reason at all why anyone would come to my hometown  Wink  I mean, I could make up a guide for "What to Do in Lexington If For Some Reason You Have to Go There", but that seems like it would apply to only a very small percentage of folks...

Count me in! it sounds like a lot of fun... my town is quite an odd place. We have a porn store owned by a local church!
