Betsy Alles column: Visitors Guide offers best winter daydreams!

As we shovel and shiver in these final gasps of winter, the best tonic could be our visions of the coming spring and summer.

Leafing through the latest Sheboygan Area Visitors Guide, I am easily transported to a day on the trails, a glimpse of the races, a body surf on the lake, the bright colors of area art shows, the trills of outdoor music?and yes, the all-senses experience of our farmer's markets. It can't come too soon for me.

This year's calendar of county events is a joy to behold.

As I watch the snow swirling by my window it's easy to lapse into a Sheboygan County daydream. In the coming months there are more than 140 events and a host of day-trip possibilities right here close to home. Whether you're a bicyclist, a walker, a runner, a surfer or you love to tool around by boat or car, I encourage you to consider a Sheboygan County "staycation" this year. Even a trek on the river walk and a stop at one of our riverside dining spots are reasons enough to combine fitness and fun.

You can daydream right along with me. Just travel to www.visitsheboygan.org or stop by the Chamber office to pick up your own copy of the 2013 Sheboygan Area Visitors Guide and a list of the events. They always say you should be a tourist in your qwn town ... and in our case we've got the whole county to explore!

And from that point of view, the snow actually looks beautiful outside my window.

Betsy Alles is the executive director of the Sheboygan County Chamber, located in the Sheboygan County Chamber Business and Visitors Center at 621 S. 8th Street in downtown Sheboygan. She enjoys hearing from readers at betsy@sheboygan.org
