On this month’s All Around Town, I will be suggesting a few things to do around Huntley. Although we live in a small town that does not seem to offer much, Huntley has fun things to offer for entertainment and cool places in general. 

Xtreme Wheels is a local skating rink where most families go to spend their Friday nights, or just for fun. Xtreme Wheels offers many activities, such as skating competitions. It is family-friendly and a good place to practice your roller skating.

Bowl-Hi Lanes, which is located right off Route 47, is a great bowling alley for any event. Bowl-Hi is very accommodating, and a great place to order food that will not disappoint. Visitors of Bowl-Hi rave about the pizza. 

Deicke Park is one of the most popular locations/parks to visit for almost any event. Deicke offers a lot such as frisbee, lots of area for sports, a park, and enough space for picnicking or hosting gatherings. Its scenery attracts residents of the area and provides a good place to stay active. 

Last but not least, Pub 47 is a great restaurant to dine at with your family. Pub 47 has a wide variety of food options for an affordable price. Locals love to dine here whether for a quick bite or a delicious meal on a work break. 

So the next time you want to try something new around town, consider these places, and support local businesses!
