The warm weather this weekend has encouraged us to get outside more and explore the downtown. A new store, Queen Bee Artisan Market, just opened on Main Street and celebrated its grand opening this week. The market is a working studio for local artisans and features beautiful vintage items. If you haven’t started your gardening yet, Pesche’s Greenhouse has a beautiful selection, including colorful pansies. On Tuesday, our publisher Barb Krause spoke at the Lake Geneva Tourism Summit, where the Lake Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce discussed the importance of tourism to our lakes area.
In addition to several great Mother’s Day brunches at area restaurants and resorts, we’ve found three fun ways to spend your weekend. Read on below.
