It’s no secret, it’s National Tourism Week, so what are you doing to celebrate? Cruising the downtown sidewalks on a Segway tour? Giving the stink eye to the out-of-towners packing South Congress? No plans yet? Celebrate by living like a tourist in your own city for a week. Let us remind you exactly what this place has to offer with a list of all the best “tourist spots” which to us, means the coolest spots in town; the places you’d show off to out-of-town visitors to make them writhe in envy.
