A new year requires a new YOU, right?
No need for a full workout routine or strict meal plan this new year when you can join us in Georgetown/Scott County Tourism’s 2017 Resolutions!
#1 – EAT LOCAL: Stop spending your money on processed food made by multi-million dollar companies and purchase your goods from local resources at the Georgetown Farmers Market. Spend date night eating out at our culinary restaurants downtown, such as Local Feed or Rodney’s on Broadway, to experience that southern-style cooking you can’t get at any chain.
#2 – SHOP LOCAL: Did you know that spending your money at a local business improves the local economy? Get your initials embroidered on your favorite sweater at Em & Me Boutique or pick up all your stained glass needs at Heirlooms & Gretchens. Find that unique anniversary or birthday gift at your downtown merchant shops rather than an overpriced department store.
#3 – PARTICIPATE IN A COMMUNITY EVENT AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH: Get the family out of the house (and out of your hair), and bring them together at a local Georgetown event! Join us during summertime for Tourism’s Party on the Square series, featuring live music & cold brews, or catch us during winter nights at the annual Southern Lights Stroll! Follow us on social media to stay up to date on events hosted by tourism and/or other community entities.
#4 – GIVE BACK YOUR TIME OR TREASURE: Give your time to those in need by volunteering a few hours of your week at the Scott County Humane Society or animal shelter. No time? Help your community with your treasures by donating any gently worn clothing and non-perishable food items to the Scott County AMEN house.
#5 – TOUR YOUR TOWN: Scott County is home to many one-of-a-kind attractions that most residents don’t take the time to enjoy. Tour Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement farm, Toyota Motor Manufacturing, and Ward Hall in year 2017. Understanding what is right in your own area can help you appreciate what the rest of the world has to offer!
It may be a new year but Georgetown continues to maintain it’s pure small-town charm!
