Welcome to the BGG Travel Agency!

Gas is way too expensive this summer, so you can only take a vacation closer to home.

Where do you want to go this summer?

Pros: Um...
Give me a minute...
Of all the songs about cities, "Mention My Name in Sheboygan" is pretty good. Bob and Ray used it as their theme song on their last show.

It's a stone's throw from Oshkosh

Cons: More monsters than Tokyo.
