The Office Fan Tours in Scranton - 2012
Organizers of "The Office" Fans Tours in Scranton would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has made the trek to "Get Their Scranton On" - here, in the fictional home of America's favorite comedy!
Over the course of the past three years, we've had the distinct pleasure of meeting fans from Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Florida, Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, the District Of Columbia, Tennessee, Illinois, New Mexico, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Maine, Louisiana, Nebraska, Indiana, Ontario, Quebec & Alberta Canada, Great Britain and most recently - Queensland, Australia.
That's a pretty impressive list and we're pleased to say that the reviews for the tour have been great. We've even had a few more "marriage proposals" in the past year! Can't you just feel the love? Check out what some fans have had to say on officetally.com
. We hope each of you have had half as much on the tour as we have had getting to know each of you.
We shall return - March 2012
As you can see, response to the tours has been tremendous so we definitely plan to keep the buses rolling in 2012. Due to the unpredictable winter weather here in Northeast Pennsylvania, we plan to suspend the tours through the winter months and return in the spring. The tours will resume here in Scranton on March 24, 2012.
