DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY
Arts and culture don’t take a backseat in our small towns - drama, dance, music, and film all have a home here. From concerts by the water and intimate acoustic sets to national acts, LivCo's live music scene brings something new to the stage (or street) every day of the year. Grab a drink and listen to a performance at a craft brewery or bring a lawn chair and settle in for a night of music in the park. Our larger venues bring in musical acts of all genres, so there’s always something to jam out to.
DIVE INTO THE REGION’S HISTORY
LivCo has a rich history of arts and cultures, and nowhere is that better captured than in our museums. Explore the history of the region, shaped by glaciers at the end of the last ice age, and dive into the culture of the Indigenous Americans who settled this land for thousands of years. While some of our museums look traditional, others are quirky and off the beaten path and all are worth exploring. Many offer low-cost or free admission, and some have limited hours, so give them a ring before you head out.
SHOP FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL
Bring something home that makes that “special trip feeling” last just a little longer. With dozens of local boutique shops and independent retailers, it would be hard not to find something that brings back fond memories of your LivCo getaway. Not sure what to buy? Pick up a gift card for the next time you visit.
CONNECT WITH AGRICULTURE
The bright and beautiful flavors of Livingston County come from ingredients only a few miles up the road. Get to know the farmers behind your food, the soil where it grows, and even their favorite way to cook it. Dig in and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty! Whether you prefer to pick-your-own produce, get to know friendly farm animals up close and personal, or tour the places where our food is lovingly grown, our agritourism destinations are a wonderful way to get to know the area on a deeper level.
