Beat Cabin Fever

Last weekend, my kids were getting stir crazy and we needed to get out of the house. We’d been taking walks around the neighborhood, but we needed something different to break up the monotony and avoid falling prey to cabin fever.

I considered some of the options available:

  • go to the movie theater
  • enjoy a game of bowling
  • spend a few hours at the ice rink or roller rink
  • explore one of Jackson County’s nature centers

My monthly budget answered the question for me – we needed something free to do, so a trip to the Dahlem Center won. In fact, we not only visited on Saturday, but they enjoyed it so much, we headed back on Sunday as well!

Sometimes we forget we have so many great options of things to do here in Jackson County… if you’re ever looking for something to do in the area, be sure to check our events calendar or find inspiration on our list of the Best Things to Do in Jackson!

What is there to do in Jackson MI this weekend?

Our events calendar is the best place to find out what’s happening in Jackson County each week.

Here are our top picks for things to do this weekend while observing social distancing and safety protocol…

Pull out the Legos or coloring books and turn on the JSO’s “Beethoven’s Best” virtual concert. Keeping hands busy while enjoying a classical music experience is a great way to enjoy an evening at home together as a family.

Browse the galleries at Ella Sharp Museum and enjoy the opening weekend of Frida Kahlo’s Garden Exhibit. This would be a great day date idea this weekend!

Venture out to the Dahlem Center for a change of scenery. Dress appropriately, and explore a trail or two as you get some fresh air and exercise. This is a perfect activity for individuals, couples, or families to do together.

Visit the American1 Event Center and start dreaming of warmer weather with Larry’s RV Winter Show. Browse their selection of RVs and campers and start making plans to enjoy Jackson County’s campgrounds this summer! Admission is free.
