On one hand, it’s a humble brown egg.

On the other, it’s untapped potential; a brand new beginning; the grand finale waiting in the wings for its moment in the spotlight.
It’s really just a question of whether or not you’ll stick around to enjoy it.

Fortunately, we’ve been gifted with a beautiful sneak peek of spring this year: Daffodils are blooming, tiny green leaves are emerging from winter’s barren trees and we’re choosing to remain optimistic that despite the inevitable setback (it is Ohio, after all), sunshine and warmer weather are just around the corner.


So it’s the perfect time to ask yourself: What does that humble brown egg have in store for me?
Take a moment to revisit those New Year’s resolutions: Want to get in shape? We’ve got 30 miles of bike paths for that.
Discover something new? We’re abounding in history, cuisine, nature and recreation.

Eat healthier? Say hello to farmers’ markets, already preparing local, homemade produce and goods for you to take home.
Maybe you need a weekend to de-stress. If you’re looking for an out-of-the-way bed and breakfast or pristine historic inn, look no further: Licking County is here for you.

So take another look.

Sure, right now it’s just an egg. But stick around for a minute or two to discover what it has in store for you, and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
