Most Underrated Thing in or About the Valley

This year in particular, teachers deserve a round of applause – and then an encore. Whether they were teaching virtually, in-person, or some of both, educators juggled global uncertainty, and our voters are grateful! When it comes time to get outside, nothing is quite like Irvine Park Zoo, where sweet critters are sure to lift your spirits. Finally, we’re extra grateful for our public libraries – especially during a pandemic. Whether in person or virtually, nothing is better than perusing the shelves for a good read, and we’re thankful for the librarians whose hard work kept us reading through turbulent times. –Rebecca Mennecke
