Spring Issue 2022

Spring blooms. Local arts & culture. Chasing waterfalls.

Spring welcomes you outside as we welcome you to LivCo. Whether you’re a first-time visitor to our area or coming back again, we’re so glad you’re here. Spring gives us a world revived, where flowers bloom on every corner, breweries put the patio furniture outside, and friends reconnect on a hike in the long hours of afternoon sunlight. When spring arrives in LivCo, our world transforms under a plush carpet of green. Buds sprout on the trees, flowers bloom, and new life is everywhere you look. Spring brings the return of walking through parks, outdoor dining, and late afternoon sun.

Kick off festival season with a trip to the Peony Festival at Linwood Gardens or head south to Dansville for their annual Dogwood Festival. Spend time supporting local businesses with a stop downtown for dinner outside on a warm spring evening and don’t forget to swing by one of our many local breweries or wineries for signature craft beverages sourced from local ingredients and flavors. Once the flowers start to bloom and the weather warms up, you won't want to miss the rushing waterfalls, biking and hiking trails, and village farmers markets that start to reopen. It’s a world reborn in LivCo when spring comes around, and you won’t want to miss it!

Planning a trip to Livingston County? Whether you're a first-time visitor or a local looking for inspiration, our seasonal guides showcase the must-dos, hidden gems, restaurants, attractions, and events that make LivCo a can't-miss destination. View the Spring Guide Online today.
