Living Outside of Ordinary 6/10

June 10, 2019

In the past month, how many days can you truly remember? On average, a few days, 4 or 5 if you’re lucky, stand out from the daily routines we all experience. That’s why Visit Champaign County is launching our new “Living Outside of Ordinary” Campaign aimed at residents and visitors as a means to encourage everyone to discover new places throughout the greater Champaign County area.

Each week, we’ll give you one thing to do each day, something Outside of Ordinary, to make sure you have a way to make each day memorable. We’ll be busy brainstorming over the next year to make sure you have ways to break out of the routine and immerse yourself in the amazing things happening right in your backyard. Some will be events, but others may be something as simple as getting outdoors, meeting a friend for a drink, or checking out a new store or restaurant. The goal is simple: when you’re Living Outside of Ordinary, you’re making memories, so we can all cherish each and every day.

Monday, June 10 – Make the Monday blues into a colorful start to the week with some art supply shopping at the I.D.E.A Store!

Tuesday, June 11 – Take advantage of discounted rates at Crystal Lake Family Aquatic Center! $4 for residents, $6 for non-residents!

Wednesday, June 12 – Head to Grovestone for a Taste of Asia Cooking Demo and Wine Tasting!

Thursday, June 13 – Craft it up with the Love Wins Crafting event at Urbana Free Library!

Friday – June 14 – Fridays should never be spent cooking. Grab pizza from Old Orchard, and if you feel up for it, hit the lanes! 

Saturday, June 15 – Learn about and celebrate Juneteenth at the Juneteenth Celebration at Douglass Park!
