We think that makes for a more enjoyable experience and that’s what we want to provide.

Looking for something to do? Go to the Attraction Guide.


This is where we list the sites in the NRW. The list is constantly growing, so check back often. Other than having information about specific sites, the Guide is also where you’ll find ratings and reviews from the community.

If you still need more ideas, visit the “Coming Soon” page. These are the places we haven’t added to the Attraction Guide.



This gives you access to leave reviews and save favorites for future reference. (Register now!)

Remember: The reviews left by the community help make the site strong.

Once a week we’ll send out information about upcoming events in the NRW. Registering for the website does not automatically sign you up for the newsletter.

Doing research about the NRW I’m constantly discovering interesting tidbits. That’s what goes in the blog. It will also be where we put profiles about the people of the NRW. It’s an easy break from your day to learn more about where you live.
