Living Outside of Ordinary: Week of 3/18

Living Outside of Ordinary: Week of 3/18


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.


Did this past weekend give you spring fever? Us too! There’s plenty of new opportunities this week that are very #OutsideofOrdinary, including live music, a wine tasting on what’s healthy for the heart, and a Japanese calligraphy class for beginners! There’s no excuse this week to NOT try something new in our area!
