2020 isn’t just a new year; it’s an exciting new decade! There is already so much to do, see, and eat here and so many great projects in the works that we came up with 20 things that should be on your to-do list in 2020. Be sure to follow us on social and join us in exploring all that the Upper Westside has to offer.

  1. Break a sweat hitting some tennis balls at the courts in Underwood Hills Park.
  2. Pick up fresh local fruit and veggie fixings at Floral Park Market, or drink an apple at Urban Tree Cidery.
  3. Sample a flight at each of our six breweries (and counting!).
  4. Bring your hammock and a book to the hammock stands at the Waterworks Greenspace and enjoy shade and skyline views.
  5. Moonwalk through the sweet new crosswalk from Miller Union to Painted Duck.
  6. Bring your friends to Puttshack for a new kind of game night.*
