We currently live in a world of convenience. With options like free two day shipping and grocery delivery services, many shoppers simply don’t have to drop by the store like they used to. So, even though we get what we need super fast and without too much effort, it seems that we are missing out on some treasured memories that are created when taking a trip to the store.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
