It's hard to decide what to do on the weekends, and for that very reason, we have introduced our WeekTrend section. Here we will publish our recommendation on events, activities, food and other experiences that are can't miss opportunities. Instead of trying to figure out what to do each week, make it a point to check the "WeekTrend" activities.
- This weekend would be the time to get together with the family and enjoy the city of Plymouth!
Sledding on Cardboard Hill
Bundle up the family and head to Plymouth's city park, where there is a large sledding hill! Have races to see who can get further on their sled!
Grab a warm beverage at The Hub Studio Cafe
When you get cold from skating outside all day--head to The Hub Studio Café to warm up! Grab a warm drink-or trying a vintage soda. Grab a board game from their collection to enjoy for some fun, family competition!
Check out the newest exhibits at the Plymouth Historical Museum
Family members of all ages will enjoy visiting this free museum! Exhibits change often, so you never know what will be new from your last visit. Kids will have fun checking out the vintage toys on display in the the new Plank Road Exhibit on the lower level. This exhibit takes you back in time to circa 1867, and gives you a look into the P.H. Smith General Store, C. Pfeifer Apothecary, and Mrs. A. Scheibe Millinery.
- Looking for the perfect date night? Here are some ideas on what to do this weekend.
Ice Skating on the Mill Pond
Get active on your date with ice skating! Bundle up and head to Plymouth's Mullet River Millpond, located at 647 E. Main Street. Don't have skates? No worries, there are free rentals! There is a warming house where you can store your boots, put on your skates, use a restroom....and order a hot chocolate!
Grab a drink at Plymouth Brewing Company
Continue your date by grabbing a locally brewed drink at Plymouth Brewing Company's tasting room. Beers are brewed across the street at the newly expanded brew house, with large windows for you to check out where and how your great drink was created!
Dinner at PJ Campbells at the Depot
Authentic German dishes with an American twist.....located inside an old Train Depot! You will love looking at the old Plymouth photos on the walls. Start your date with a drink at the bar, and then move into the dining room. Share a large pretzel (seriously...this thing is massive and meant to be shared!), and then take your pick on your favorite German dish!
- Here are some great ideas to try some new things this weekend
Plymouth's downtown offers a great selection of antique stores, woman's clothing, flower/garden shops, book stores, a pet supplies store and more! Grab your friends and come explore the downtown area!
Check out the Downtown Murals
While you are shopping and checking out the downtown shops, grab a mural map of the downtown so you are sure not to miss any of these giant pieces of art work as you walk from shop to shop!
Stock up on local cheese
No trip to downtown Plymouth is complete without a stop at the Cheese Counter & Dairy Heritage Center! Here you will find fun interactives that tell the story of Plymouth's extensive cheese history...and why Plymouth is known as the Cheese Capital of the World! Order food at the cheese counter (mac & cheese, paninis, grilled cheese and more, all made with local cheese), shop, and purchase local cheese!
