Visiting downtown Hobart is not only a unique, but a historic experience. A number of the buildings are recognized nationally on the historic registry. You can walk down Main St. and see different time periods represented from the turn of the century, to art deco, to most recently, postmodern.
If you are lucky enough to visit in the winter time, you can enjoy a stroll along Lakefront Park decorated with twinkling lights, just right for the Holiday Season.
The events that Hobart offers, has really put this quaint city on the map. The event season does not stop in the fall, it carries on all winter long, with something for everyone to enjoy. Visitors and residents alike can start the holiday season by shopping our historic downtown on Small Business Saturday, taking advantage of special holiday deals throughout the downtown area. You will definitely want to visit Toys in the Attic, a vintage toy shop that has today’s educational favorites. You won’t find anything electronic in here, everything is geared towards creativity and education, it’s a parent favorite for sure! Downtowns are what makes a community unique, come out and see what sets Hobart’s Historic Downtown District apart from the rest.
