Nope! Not here in Grant County! Ok, so we haven’t had a lot of snow for the usual activities. I’m not complaining! I’m one of those people who don’t mind cold weather, if it means I can stay warm inside or travel to some form of entertainment in a nice warm vehicle.
Yes, I’m kind of a wuss about the cold. But………. there are a lot of things to do and I can still stay nice and warm. Grant County has plenty of great stores to shop in for something unique – like the antique stores in Cuba City or popcorn at Rural Route 1. I can take in the Winter Markets on Saturday at the Blaine Gym in Boscobel or the Trinity Episcopal Church in Platteville. Great cheese can be found anytime of year at Gile Cheese in Cuba City and Carr Valley Cheese in Fennimore. Wine? You bet! Spurgeon’s and other wineries are open all year round. Ruby Lady – here I come! Did I mention food? We have some really great places to eat in Grant County. You can find all of this on our website under Tourism.
There are a lot of events coming up for your entertainment, too. “Decoding the Driftless” is being presented on January 29th at the Grantland Theater in Lancaster. It has received great reviews and opens your eyes to the wonders that surround the Driftless Region. For those that actually enjoy cold weather – February 2nd is “Outdoor Skills Day” at Southwest Tech in Fennimore. February 9th, the Potosi Brewery hosts the “Port of Potosi Cave Party”. The “Taste of Fennimore” is just around the corner on March 2nd. Check out our “Events” portion of the website for more information or to find out what other fun things you can do.
Grant County – a great place to live and an awesome place to visit!
