Jun 07, 2010 by Hamilton County Tourism
Today our guest blogger is Marisa - an intern brand new to the Bureau. Last week we took a tour of the 8 Great Towns of Hamilton County, and below are Marisa's thoughts on the day: As a new intern at Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau, everyday is different and unforeseen. Dismissing the clichÃ© intern out of the picture that runs and delivers coffee every morning, I am an intern that has a voice and a creative outlet to help Hamilton Countyâ€™s tourism grow. Iâ€™d never thought that I would have the privilege of working with an incredible group of professionals so kind-hearted and eagerness to help me on my first week on the job. Â After my victory dance due to my offer for this position at the end of my spring semester at Purdue, I knew I would try everyday to produce the best work and have an open mind to many things I did not yet know about Public Relations and Marketing. Above all, a private tour of the breathtaking Hamilton County was my favorite this week. After being enticed by Lisaâ€™s Pie Shop in Atlanta, my taste buds were satisfied by having a bite of Birthday Cake ice cream at Alexanderâ€™s on the Square in Noblesville. Growing up in Wisconsin, I am very familiar with a place called "Old World Wisconsin" (an attraction where one goes back in time in the 19th century), and after seeing a very similar attraction at Conner Prairie, I felt like a kid again.Â The giant helium-filled balloon was massive; but the weather wasn't cooperating, so we couldn't take a ride. Â Iâ€™ll have to put taking a ride on the balloon onto my to-do list for the next time I am there. Here is a behind the scenes look at our day out in beautiful Hamilton County: [caption id="attachment_2190" align="aligncenter" width="223" caption="Artists on Noblesville Square"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2191" align="aligncenter" width="219" caption="Walking up to the Conner Prairie 1859 Balloon Voyage"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_2192" align="aligncenter" width="224" caption="At the Nickel Plate, where Intern Heui-La tasted her first tenderloin!"][/caption] Signing off, Intern Marisa
