Springtime. 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 our favorite things to do in the spring in Beloit. Check them out and start planning your staycation!
Catch a Game
Nothing says spring has sprung like a trip to the ballpark. The Beloit Sky Carp kick off their season April 12. Grab your tickets and head out to ABC Supply Stadium. While you’re there, be sure to check out one of the several unique concession options that are sure to wow your tastebuds.
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.
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 & Houstons, located right off the lobby. Listen to local musicians while you sip on margaritas and savor the flavor of street tacos at truk’t or while you drink classic cocktails and indulge in a quality steak from Merrill & Houston’s.
Want the best of both worlds? Pair tequila and steak when you reserve your spot for Merrill & Houston’s Tequila Dinner on May 19th.
Wine & Walk
A walk through downtown sampling wines? Yes, please. This year’s Spring Wine Walk takes place April 30 where more than a dozen venues will have white, red, sweet and dry wines for you to sample while you stroll through town and wander through the unique shops and boutiques in downtown. Choose to walk or hop on the trolley that can take you all around.
Want to wait until May?
No problem. The Beloit Farmers’ Market starts May 7th and goes every Saturday from May to October. There’s no shortage of activities on Cinco de Mayo as truk’t always has something up their sleeve. And if you really want to treat Mom this year, bring her to Mother’s Day Brunch at Merrill & Houston’s on May 8th.
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.
