The age old complaint of “there’s nothing to do” just doesn’t ring true for Jefferson County anymore.
Each weekend, there are numerous events and activities which are open to the public. It’s just a matter of finding what fits into schedules and likes.
This weekend, there’s the Market Days at the former Armory on Broadway. Flea market and rummage sale finds, farmer’s market find plus food and drink abound. And, along the same vein, there’s Randy’s Family Center which hosts a weekend craft fair and flea market.
For those who want more activity in their activities, there’s the Aquatic Zoo, Rend Lake and numerous golf courses. If music is your thing, each weekend, GenKota Winery hosts GenKota Jamz.
Art is also represented in the area, with the opening of Gallery 223 at the corner of Ninth and Broadway — and Cedarhurst Center for the Arts.
Cedarhurst is often taken for granted by local residents, but it is a world-class facility which features renowned artwork, work of local artists and hands-on classes and workshops. The sculpture park provides a place to enjoy nature and art at the same time.
And, we won’t even get into the number of retail outlets available for shopping therapy.
Before saying, “there’s nothing to do,” take a look around.
You might be surprised.
