Tell Us About Your Town

My best tips and stories come from readers. And I want you to tell me about something you’re uniquely qualified to talk about — your town.

I want to know more about the city or town where you live — or the town(s) you identify most closely with, if you’re a rural resident. Now is your chance to tell us all when to visit, what to see and to share some of your city’s best kept secrets.

If you’re on Twitter, join us for the #Prairie Places Twitter Chat on February 29 at 8:00 p.m. CST. (Yes, that’s tomorrow night. Isn’t Leap Year magical and confusing?) If you’re not on Twitter, don’t worry — you can totally chime in as well. Just keep reading for instructions at the end of the post.

If you’ve never done a Twitter Chat before, this is a great topic to start with. Follow me @PrairieStylFile if you haven’t already. Then check out Twitter at 8 p.m. tomorrow night. I’ll post seven questions, one every few minutes. Then check out the tips, photos and links that readers like you provide.

Moorhead, Minnesota

Here’s what we’ll be talking about tomorrow night:

Question 1: What’s your city or town and what makes it unique?

Question 2: What’s your favorite neighborhood? What’s best way to explore it?

Question 3: Where do you go for the perfect night out?

Question 4: What’s the best outdoor attraction near you?

Question 5: When is the best time to visit your city and why?

Question 6: What’s the best cultural attraction in your town?

Question 7: What’s your city’s best kept secret?

Minneapolis, Minnesota

To answer a question, just label your Tweet “A1, A2” etc. so we know what you’re responding to. (If you forget, it’s not a big deal. We’ve all done it!) Just make sure to include the hashtag #PrairiePlaces. The hashtag allows everyone to see your reply, even if they’re not currently following you.

If you can’t join us until later, that’s okay too. You can search the #PrairiePlaces hashtag to see what we’re currently talking about or just jump right in.

These chats are such a great way to get inspired and meet new people. It’s also fun to get  new travel ideas and connect with fellow adventurers from communities all over the world. And if I like your tips, you’ll be included in an upcoming Prairie Style File post!

If you’re not on Twitter and don’t plan to be, you can still participate. Just comment below this post and I’ll share your tips during the chat tomorrow. Or you can comment on Facebook or Instagram if you follow me on those platforms.

Talk to you tomorrow!
