Living Outside of Ordinary: Week of 4/22

Living Outside of Ordinary: Week of 4/22


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.


Earth Day kicks off the week, which a great excuse to incorporate a public bus ride into your normal schedule! Before the Illinois Marathon on Saturday, participate in a game night at Canopy Club, see a youth performance of a musical beloved by all, and explore a hidden gym in one of our local forest preserves!


Monday, April 22 – Ride an MTD bus instead of drive at some point in your regular schedule. Happy Earth Day!


Tuesday, April 23 – Grab a long island iced tea and food from Manolo’s Pizza & Empanadas at the Canopy Club’s Tabletop Tuesday!
