4 Reasons to Visit Trading Post Outfitters for Travel & Tourism Week

National Travel & Tourism Week is an exciting time for businesses in the travel industry. From May 7-13, 2023, people across the country celebrate the power of travel and tourism to create jobs, drive economic growth, promote cultural exchange, and much more. We are grateful every day that we have the opportunity to work in this industry & provide visitors with outdoor experiences here in our local community. Whether you’re a traveler, outdoor enthusiast, or someone simply looking for a way to visit a new place & spend some time outside, here are a few reasons you should come visit us at Trading Post Outfitters during Travel & Tourism Week.

Experience something new and unique

We offer a one-of-a-kind experience that you won’t find elsewhere in Northern Indiana. Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation, or something in between, Trading Post Outfitters has something for you! Our river trips range from a short 4 mile (1.5 hour) float to an all-day 13 mile (5.5 hours) excursion. We have a riverside campground with both electric & primitive sites, and a camp store on-site with everything you need for a comfortable stay here. We’re also a short walk to the Mongo General Store or a 15 minute drive into the town of LaGrange for groceries, dining, and more.

Support a small business in a local community

As a small business, we rely on the support of our community to keep doing what we do. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to be located in a beautiful small town with a thriving community & strong local support. Whether you’re a few miles down the road or a few hours drive coming from Chicago, Indianapolis, Detroit, or another nearby city, we like to think of our rural area as a backyard of sorts for you – our neighbors. When you support a small business, you’re also growing a local economy. Tourism dollars help to create jobs, stimulate economic growth, and contribute to the overall wellbeing of our community here in the Midwest.

Escape from the everyday and get outside

Life can be pretty stressful, and sometimes we all need a break from everyday routines (especially after a long, cold winter here in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio. A little time spent on the river & camping out in nature is the perfect way to escape from that daily grind and immerse yourself in a new environment. Whether you’re looking to relax and unwind or challenge yourself with a new experience, we have just what you need to recharge your battery and leave feeling refreshed.

Create lasting memories

Travel and outdoor adventure are all about creating memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you’re spending time here on the Pigeon River with family, friends, or on a quiet solo retreat, we can guarantee you’ll leave with some memories that would be much more difficult to create from your own couch. Canoeing or kayaking on a new river, sleeping under the stars, and making camp meals or s’mores by the fire are memorable moments alone, or with those you love.
