Have you visited Beloit, Wisconsin recently, because it's a really cool place to check out.

It seems like for the last several years, the only publicity anywhere around the state line has been getting is for the bad. Things like being dangerous and poorly educated.

Yes, there are issues in our area, but there are a lot of good things happening too.

For example, have you ventured over the state line to check out Beloit. It's become a happening little town. Especially, in the downtown area.

So much so, the New York Times recently wrote an article about it.

"Diane Hendricks and her late husband saw opportunity in Beloit, a decaying
industrial town. Now, she dreams of turning it into a mecca for start-ups."

Downtown Beloit is now home to a bunch of great little restaurants and stores.

The farmer's market on Saturdays is a fun event for the whole family. They have live music, food trucks, vendors, fresh food stands, and so much more.

It's a great place for the family, to go on a date, or hang with some friends.

Next time you are looking for something to do, go check out Beloit.
