"We like to oot, oot, oot, ooples and boonoonoos ?+?+?."

During the spring, Visit Lake County launched its inaugural #LakeCountyRW Photo Contest during the seventh installment of the lauded 10 Days to savor initiative.

@visitlakecounty Savor for 10 days, Lake County Restaurant Week running now through April 10! Bon Appétit and #LetsGoLakeCounty! #LakeCountyRW ♬ BORN FOR THIS - Foxxi

Lake County Restaurant Week highlighted over 60 local restaurants showcasing special prix fixe menus, food and drink pairings, live entertainment and other promotions.

This year's land of lakes fare frenzy revolved around supporting the hospitality staff: the chefs, bartenders, servers, baristas, hosts, the people in the front and the back of the house that have continued to serve us with a smile and provide great service and cuisine for visitors.
