In the middle of town is an old post office building built in the early 1930’s with an Art Deco style. Driving by you wouldn’t know that it was occupied. The entrance isn’t clearly marked so you get a rush when you open the door like you aren’t supposed to be there. It’s a stairwell straight to the basement. Once hitting the bottom there are troves of local shops hidden behind every turn. I have no idea how they all fit in such a small space.
It’s always exciting to explore something new but even more so when it feels like not everyone knows about it. But how do I find a hidden gem, you say? Word of mouth is how I find new places but if you are little more high tech, there are apps to help you find some new fun spots in your town. Maybe your new hidden gem is more of an event and not a location. Try checking local bulletin boards at coffee shops, gyms, and other local hangouts you know about.
Although you may feel like you don’t know how to look or even where to start, the idea is to just start looking. Since you don’t know what the destination is, you can’t really plan for how you are going to get there. Word of mouth, apps, and bulletin board fliers are just guides to help you get started but not the only way or even the best way. When you get comfortable getting out there, just go for it. Don’t limit yourself. Get out there and find your hidden gem!
