TMAC Atlantic February 17th 2018 Meeting – Destination: Dartmouth

So…. our February 17th Meeting and Mingle is coming together really nicely, with assistance from Tim Rissesco and Crystal Garrett from Downtown Dartmouth. I met Tim and Crystal on Friday, January 26th at the coffee shop, Two if By Sea (see pic above) and learned how much Dartmouth has to offer in terms of local travel inspiration. In Dartmouth, you’re spoilt for choice: history, food, culture, fishing, engineering, urban renewal: there are a lot of stories, and some exciting projects (like the Sawmill river daylighting project) in the pipeline too. Scroll down to  the bottom for previous press/story inspiration.

*note that Downtown Dartmouth is not a TMAC member, just our very gracious host for the day!
