What better way to celebrate the holidays than a tour of a CPG company’s headquarter?
The SC Johnson company is proud of its corporate campus designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright and is offering free tours it contends make for a great activity for families and guests visiting the company’s home town of Racine, WI.
"Our free tour programs provide visitors with an exciting and educational experience, giving everyone the opportunity to experience Frank Lloyd Wright’s renowned masterpieces and to learn about the unique history between the architect and SC Johnson," said Kelly M.
