“We are excited to be back for 2024, and thankful to our returning and new partners. With the addition of Nawa on The Landing, we will build on the information we added last year related to the history of The Landing,” said Amber Bouthot, owner. “Sweets on Main will bring a new aspect to our tours, as well: samples of two signature ice cream dishes!
