Last month, I had the opportunity to participate in a FAM Tour (tourism lingo for Familiarization Tour) with Visit Hendricks County. I had never been on a FAM tour before. I didn't even know what a FAM Tour was. Over the course of two days, however, I discovered that even a local can learn a lot about their area by going on a tour like this one, and a visitor will be awestruck. A FAM Tour is designed to FAMiliarize people with what Hendricks County has to offer. This tour featured portions of Visit Hendricks County's holiday-themed Ho Ho Holiday Tour, which the sales team offers to group tour operators. In addition to group tour operators, travel writers from Indianapolis, around Indiana, and as far away as Ohio, Illinois and even Iowa also attended. These are people who wanted to learn more about our great county and encourage visitors to come here or bring visitors back on a group tour.
