Your Spring Staycation in Beloit

Spring time. The days are longer, the flowers are blooming and the Midwest winter is finally behind us. It’s time to start planning a spring staycation at Ironworks Hotel Beloit to really kick the winter blues and get ready for springtime.

We gathered a list of a few of our favorite things to do in the spring in Beloit. Check them out and start planning your staycation.

Riverside Park

A short walk on the Riverside Corridor takes you to Riverside Park, the “crown jewel of Beloit.” You can get some of the best views of Beloit from the 3.5-mile walk/bike path, play tennis on the courts or enjoy a picnic with carryout from one of the restaurants located downtown.


You’re a Member for a Stay at the Beloit Club during your time at Ironworks Hotel Beloit, so don’t forget to bring your golf clubs. Play 18 holes of golf on an award-winning course while taking in the spring weather.


Another Member for a Stay perk is getting to try Beloit Club’s brunch. Between their skillets, omelets and specialties, you can’t make a wrong choice. They also make all of their cocktails from fresh-squeezed juices. Bessie’s Diner at the Janesville Airport is also an excellent brunch spot, and it’s only a quick drive from Ironworks Hotel. They always have a featured pancake, but everything on the menu will leave you satisfied and smiling.

Live Music

You have two chances for live music in Beloit every week: Thursdays from 6-9 p.m. at truk’t and Fridays from 8-11 p.m. at Merrill & Houston’s Steak Joint, located off the hotel’s lobby. Listen to a local band or artist while you sip on margaritas and savor the unique street tacos at truk’t or while you drink classic cocktails and indulge in a quality steak from Merrill & Houston’s. If you’re planning your spring staycation in April, you can take part in Merrill & Houston’s Easter Make & Takes on April 1, the always-perfect Easter Brunch on April 4 at Merrill & Houston’s, and the Downtown Beloit Spring Wine Walk, which is one of our favorite events of the year.

Want to wait until May?

No problem. The Beloit Farmers’ Market starts May 1st and goes every Saturday from May to October. There’s no shortage of activities on Cinco de Mayo with Merrill & Houston’s Tequila Dinner and truk’t always has something up their sleeve. If you really want to treat Mom this year, bring her to Mother’s Day Brunch at Merrill & Houston’s on May 9th. Baseball fans, the Beloit Snappers’ first home series is May 11-16. Nothing says “spring” like baseball! And for those that simply want to relax in your hotel room, Ironworks Hotel Beloit’s rooms are complete with plush robes, comfortable beds and a fully stocked minibar. Reserve your Ironworks Hotel Beloit stay to have the best spring staycation since your last spring break.
