Beloit, Wi; First impression coming from Illinois

Beloit is not a town that I found very visually appealing. The roads and many of the building show their age and could use a fresh coat of paint. That also means there's history there, and that's why I visited Beloit. I love learning about Wisconsin and Beloit has a deep and rich history. The town is right on the border with Illinois, so it doesn't exactly set the best first impression for the state but it does have some redeeming qualities.

Beloit has many museum like attractions. The Angel Museum was something my daughter found very interesting. The Wright Museum of Fine arts was a stop that sparked her creativity for sure. I really enjoyed the Beckman Mill, its a HUGE park with multiple historic buildings on it along with ponds and trails that make it easy to get lost in nature.

Within the community is a LARGE farmers market. Quality produce at good prices, the strawberries were delicious. They sell more than just produce too. Little nick nacks and crafted things are also sold.
