Family Fun WilCo Weekend Getaway

Spring is finally here! The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the entire family collectively sighs, uttering an all too familiar phrase – “We’re booooooored”.  What to do? Wilson County has a wealth of activities and attractions that are sure to cure the family boredom bug.

We all know that it can go from sunny skies to soaking rain in the blink of an eye here. So, if weekend outdoor plans get rained out, families can head to one of our art studios to satisfy their creative sides. Check ahead to register for fun workshops and classes at AR Workshop, Imagine That! Art Studio, Board and Brush, or pop into Fired Up, pick a piece of pottery and make it your own right on the spot. 

Perhaps lower cost/free options that still offer the benefit of tuckering out the younger family members, so they’ll leave you alone to binge-watch your neglected Netflix shows later is more desirable? Check out Charlie Daniels Park or Don Fox Community Park! Both beautiful parks boast multiple playgrounds to accommodate different ages, walking/running/biking tracks, as well as splash pads/a wading pool in the summer, volleyball courts and much, much more. You can even bring a picnic or pick up food from one of our many local restaurants and make a day of it.

Wrap up a fun-filled family day by catching a double feature on one of the big screens at the Stardust Drive-In Theatre. The Stardust Drive-In lends a nod to nostalgia for the past, while utilizing the technology of the present to bring stellar sound and projection quality to every movie. While you’re in Watertown, why not try any of their amazing culinary choices before the movie (and popcorn of course!)
