Without a doubt, Janesville is a community growing better with age. Each year we add more events, attractions, restaurants, and things to do. Meanwhile, our natural resources improve and continue to provide the premier Wisconsin’s Great Outside experience. Here are just some of the things we are looking forward to in 2022 in Janesville.

1. Meetings are back.

We’ve taken the last couple years to rethink how we do meetings in Janesville. Our event venues provide clean meeting and event spaces with one-of-a-kind experiences for your team.

2. Winter is better in Janesville.

We don’t hibernate in Janesville. When the temperatures drop, it’s time for the skis, sleds, and snowshoes to come out. Inside, there’s no shortage of fun with live performances returning to the Janesville Performing Arts Center, great eats across the city, beer tastings, and cozy lodging options to help you unwind.

Why wait until Summer to getaway, when we know you’re ready today.

3. The great outside never goes out of style.

With more than 60 improved parks and 30 miles of paved, off-road trails including the southern-most segment of Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail, you can– and should– spend days exploring Wisconsin’s Great Outside. On foot, wheels, boat, skis, or whatever your favorite way to get around, our outside is one you can’t miss this year.

4. Janesville is Wisconsin’s newest food destination.

A string of new eateries combined with classic local favorites make Janesville a true food destination. Newcomers Sandwich Bar, Genisa Wine Bar, Jeff’s Kitchen, and The Sugar Exchange have made eating in Janesville a new experience.

5. Love is in the air.

Getting married in Janesville will be even better in 2022 with the addition of 10 South, a brand new, ultra chic wedding venue. 10 South joins a long list of beautiful venues that are the perfect backdrops for your greatest day.

It is finally time you loosen your shoulders, take a deep breath, and make yourself a priority after everything you’ve experienced the last few years. You can treat yourself to a spa day, a shopping spree, a weekend away, a hot meal cooked by someone else, or all of the above.

9. We offer all the uniquely Wisconsin experiences.

Supper clubs. Beer. Cheese. What more could you ask for? Discover the quintessential Wisconsin experience just over the border. 2022 is the perfect year to learn why we put Brandy in our Old Fashioneds.

10. Everything you love about us is still right here.

Janesville’s resilience has shone and because of that, local and visitor favorites including the Rotary Botanical Gardens, Rock Aqua Jays, Lincoln-Tallman House, Janesville Jets, Uptown Janesville, the Rock County 4H Fair, and much more are still standing and thriving.
