ROME CITY, Ind. (WFFT)- This is the sixth annual passport for fun in Noble County to show off all the attractions the county has.

"We're celebrating with all the other counties in Indiana and it also corresponds with National Tourism Week," Marketing Coordinator for the Noble County Visitors Bureau Emily Schneider said.

Tourism is being highlighted across the state and it's helping small businesses like Lavender Lane.

Lavender Lane is a small lavender farm that started in 2008. Everything in the store is grown here.

"We've got a lot of lotions and lip balms, and bath bombs, shower gels, books," Lavender Lane owner Dawn McCrery said.

One of the things they like doing is connecting people with nature. Lavender Lane does tours here too.

McCrery said when you're going out and visiting some of the small businesses where ever you are, it's everyone helping each other, and that's what makes it special.
