Janesville is Wisconsin’s Park Place with more than 2,500 acres of parkland where you can play golf, have a picnic, hike and bike, or lower your boat into the Rock River for a day of fishing. And visit Traxler Park to see the National Champion Rock Aqua Jays Ski Team, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The Rotary Botanical Gardens in full bloom is a sight to behold, as well as in the winter for the Holiday Lightshow which features over 330,000 lights. Janesville’s historic sites demonstrate the pride the community has in its heritage. Don’t pass up a trip to the Rock County Historical Society Campus which features the Lincoln-Tallman House and Museum, the only existing house in Wisconsin that can claim Abraham Lincoln really did sleep here. History meets arts and culture at The Armory, where you can take in a musical or comedy performance, as well as dine at their restaurant. You’ll also find a variety of performances at the Janesville Performing Arts Center, fast action on the ice with the Janesville Jets, and plenty more exciting destinations, activities and events throughout Janesville.
