Patio season is officially upon us! We can’t get enough of this warmer weather. With the sunshine, fresh air, and blooming flowers, it’s high time to hit the patio!

Whether you’re digging into a full-blown meal, sharing some appetizers, or simply kicking back with a cocktail or coffee, Brown County has plenty of patios for the pickin’. If you’re like us, it doesn’t matter what you’re doing, as long as you’re outside!

Summer also calls for fresh food! Did you know that the Story Inn, Birds Nest Café, and Brown County Inn are true farm-to-table restaurants? That’s right, they grow items in their onsite gardens, which are used seasonally to create delicious menu dishes. You can even wander the gardens at some of these locations! It doesn’t get much fresher than that!

Cheers to patio season, friends!
