“Be A Tourist In Your Own Backyard” has returned to the Quad Cities!

Dozens of local businesses and organizations will offer discounts and coupons just in time for the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, according to the Quad Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The goal is to bring more tourist to the Quad Cities and to offer natives a chance to get out and beat those Winter blues.

“I think it’s a great way for people to get introduced or reintroduced to what we have to offer in the Quad Cities community. They maybe haven’t been to the new Hotel Blackhawk, or maybe haven’t been to the botanical center in a while; that’s all reasons – and great reasons – why you want to be a tourist in your own backyard,” says Jessica Waytenick, marketing manager for the Quad City Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Businesses participating in this event include Exotic  Escape Day Spa and the Putnam Museum and Science Center.

All “Be A Tourist In Your Own Backyard” coupons are mobile-friendly and are available – click here.
