Enjoy A Socially Distant Day Out In Delavan

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been anxiously awaiting the day when we can all return to normal and resume our daily activities.  Maybe you’ve been missing shopping the streets of downtown, or dining on the decks of your favorite restaurants.

While we are still social distancing and following the recommendations of the CDC, we can still get out of our homes and enjoy a day out in Delavan with a few precautions.  Here are five activities to have the best socially distant day here in Delavan.

Let the Walldog Scavenger Hunt Begin!

You’ve definitely seen them around town.  They are large, colorful and play a huge role in telling Delavan’s history. And while they’re still relatively new in town, they fit right in as if they’ve been here forever.  They are the Walldog murals of course!

The 1904252154Delavan Walldog murals were brought to life in 2015 by a group of mural artists from around the country.  These artists create historical advertisements and pieces celebrating small town American history.

With over twenty murals across down, every age and era of Delavan’s history is represented in an active and unique style.   From its prudent beginnings, through Delavan’s Circus age, to modern day, the murals tell our town’s story in a way words cannot.

And while you’ve certainly seen them, have you ever taken a closer look? We invite you to take the Walldog Mural Tour and participate in the Walldog Scavenger Hunt. Put your seeking skills to the test and match each clue to the mural numbers on the map below based on the hints and clues provided.

With two 1904255702different versions, this is an adventure the whole family can take part in.  Take on the challenge with the Adult Scavenger Hunt or enjoy the Kids Scavenger Hunt with your little ones.  When you are finished with your hunt, send your completed form to info@visitdelavan.com to be entered for a chance to win a prize. Winners will be drawn once a month!
