The community is invited to join the MLK Business Association for free business district tours along the Martin Luther King, Jr. corridor, where guests will visit several independently-owned shops and listen to intriguing stories from entrepreneurs who recently arrived in the US.
“It will be like vacationing abroad without the hassle of having to update your passport,” said organizer Sarah Valenta.
Last summer, RVP reader Mimi Torchia Boothby attended a tour of the area around Othello Station and said, “I discovered businesses I’ve walked right by before, and met some really nice neighbors as well!”
