The Daytripper, now ending its sixth season, is asking viewers where to visit for the season finale, and Mansfield is in the top 5 in voting.

The show, featuring Chet Garner, was created "to inspire folks to get out and explore the Lone Star State," according to its website. "Sure, national travel shows are entertaining, but that’s where they stop. The Daytripper is all about destinations in Texas for Texans, which means you can visit whenever you want."

 Mansfield's tourism manager Theresa Cohagen (who we will feature in our upcoming print edition) said she's been trying to get Daytripper to come to town for the past six years.

"We have just sent information to him over the last few years and stalked his Facebook page," she laughed, "whenever we have awesome events in town that would be of interest to his audience."

Cohagen said the city finally broke through to the show's page through a grassroot effort of people sharing the page and getting their networks to vote.

Some of the top spots of interest in Mansfield, according to Cohagen and the tourism website, are: Steven's Garden and GrillBig D BarbecueThe Farr Best TheaterMansfield Historical MuseumElmer W. Oliver Nature ParkBig League Dreams, plus the Unique Festival and events: Mansfield Wurst FestPickle Parade with the Pickle Queens, and Mansfield is celebrating its 125 anniversary this year.

"It's a great time for them to visit Mansfield," Cohagen said.

To vote, simply follow this link, and tell Garner he's welcome in Mansfield. Voting ends on Feb. 13.
