As some of you may know, I am the Community Manager for @GogobotChicago and it is my role to start, grow and foster an enthusiastic travel community here in Chicago. One of the ways that I have done that is by starting a group on MeetUp called Chicago Travel Enthusiasts. (Click to join!)
What I like about the community on MeetUp (vs Facebook) is that when people RSVP for an event- they are more likely to actually show up. This is a video of our last event which was a simple lake shore walk. We had a blast, got some exercise and talked about future plans. If you are looking to be part of a diverse community of people passionate about travel, who like to “get out there and DO stuff”, join us!
