Not sure you're a Black Friday shopper? 

I didn't used to be, either! But now that I work and live right HERE, I've come around. This is exactly where I want to be on this holiday weekend because it's laid back, it's fun and it's truly a local experience. 

Will you take my Black Friday/Small Business Saturday challenge? Try this itinerary--I'm pretty sure you'll end the day smiling, feeling relaxed, and you'll have a whole lotta holiday shopping crossed off your list.
