Thursdays are known as the big garage sale days in Crown Point, so keep your eyes open for sale signs around town.
Take advantage of the plethora of ice cream shops in town.  Challenge yourself and a friend to an ice cream "taste off," sampling frozen treasures from the ice cream shops in the downtown area.  (Just off the top of our heads, we count 4 within easy walking distance of each other.)  Our caution:  Beware of brain freeze!
Crown Point is a great setting for photos.  Take some pictures of the sites or other neat things that you see.  We'd be glad to post them in our photo gallery.  We're especially hoping to see some of the great locations in Crown Point decked in splendid fall colors!
Nice weather means it's time to start walking!  "Sources" say it is one mile from the Old Courthouse to the Lake County Fairgrounds.  Get some exercise, and see the season's wonderful colors. 
On a warm evening, grab a park bench on the courthouse square and people watch.  But in Crown Point, people watching easily includes car watching.  It's free, entertaining, and makes for lots of topics for conversation with all the cruising cars and sights to see.  Sure, this might be considered one of your cheapest dates, but also possibly one of the more creative.  Throw in an ice cream and it's down right charming!
If you're hurting to go to the beach, but don't feeling like driving all the way to Lake Michigan?  Don't forget Fancher Lake at the Lake County Fairgrounds for beach and swimming.  There are also some fine picnic areas within the grounds.
You'd better get started planning for St. Patrick's Day, or you might be left out in the cold with no "Kiss Me I'm Irish Kiss!"  We know of at least one Irish pub in town.  See if you can find more to make the rounds on that notorious evening.
Are you the type who likes to dress obnoxiously in green for St. Patty's day?  Give your green wardrobe a super boost by making a few selective purchases from one or two of the used clothing shops in the Crown Point area.
