When we received the McCurtain County Tourism Authority RFP, we knew we needed to break our own routines, get out of town and have a firsthand experience. While several members of the team at ICG had previously visited, many of us were coming in with fresh eyes. Over a cool weekend in January, our team rented two cabins in Beavers Bend and set out to explore and experience what McCurtain County has to offer. We broke into groups to spend a day hiking, fishing, jeeping, sightseeing, ziplining, dining and brewery hopping. That evening we met up at the cabin to grill and share our experiences.
