USA Today Named the Hub City as One of the 10 Best Spots for Antiquing

The cold and rain is upon us. Outdoor excursions are out. What to do on the weekend?

The Lewis County Weekender suggests heading down to historic downtown Centralia, purchase a steaming hot cup of java (perhaps from Santa Lucia Coffee, the main feature of this issue) from one of the many coffee joints, and then spend a Saturday or Sunday strolling through the antique outlets dotted along Tower Avenue, with a few just off the main drag.

A few choice restaurants and/or bars will make the excursion complete.

The Weekender reminds you that USA Today recently named Centralia one of its 10 Best spots for antiquing, rivaling places such as New Orleans and Kansas City.

Antiques might be old, but antiquing is hip, to use perhaps an out-of-date term.
