posted by on Wednesday, March 10, 2021

If you are planning on staying put for Spring Break but wouldn’t mind exploring the District with the nice weather in the forecast, the merchants of the district have put together specials and activities to keep you and the kiddos busy and happy for a spring break staycation style.

As you know, so many trails lead to the Downtown District and with the weather we’ve been having, you will get to enjoy yourself on the trails. As you venture out don’t forget to stop by and check out the Plaza located at the corner of 2nd and State. It is a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy a cup of tea, coffee, and/or one of the amazing treats that you can snag while Downtown.

Do you need a creative outlet for the kiddos? Well look no further than open studio ALL WEEK at Hatchlings & Hens! There is a make & take craft studio with everything supplied. You just supply the creativity, and they clean up the mess afterwards. If you would prefer to craft at home, they can make that happen as well. Visit their website to find studio times and more information.

Have you tried your luck at Hurling Hatchet yet? It is a fun activity for anyone looking for a new adventure. Not to mention, they have some great deals throughout Spring Break week! Check out their deals at this link and book a lane on their website!

If you prefer hanging out at home this week and need some Staycation respite, Jiva has some great kits to help with that. Check out the link and get some of these amazing smelling supplies for you and your home.

The Ragged Edge Art Bar and Gallery will be holding their Artist at the Edge Series. On March 13th from 12:00-3:00 pm meet stained glass artist, Beth Kivett.

Maybe your Spring Break staycation includes an adult night out and if that is the case, Bar Winslow is offering a Spring Break Flight of cocktails, this flight will be four “vacation” themed craft cocktails for $20 and we are sure they will make you feel like you are on vacation!
