Business YETI

For us the region is the Chicagoland area, Lake, Porter, La Porte, and Starke County Indiana. It's a big area but everything within an hours drive for most families. There's a lot to do and the more we have lived in the area the more undiscovered adventures we find. Many of these places have big budgets to get the word out but those magical gems often don't have those big budgets. So it was our desire to showcase everyone and make it affordable (e.g. free).
