Petersburg Restaurants

    There are no actual restaurants in Petersburg anymore. The best thing is to either order some snacks at the local pub or drive 10 miles to the nearest grocery store and eat out or stock up on some groceries and cook yourself!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Definitely bring warm clothes (mittens, boots, etc) when visiting in the winter. Temps can get pretty cold (below 0 F) so these are a must!!

Petersburg Off The Beaten Path

    Take your pick. Try a long Sunday drive through the country, go to a local lake and hang with local farm folk trying to get away from the summer heat. Go ice fishing in the winter (that's enough to make you not like fishing anymore!), cow tipping after dark. Catch a local High School sports game (basketball is very popular.)

    The Game is played between two four-member teams who use stones with different colored handles. Each game consists of ten ends, which are similar to innings in baseball. During an end, each team member alternates throwing stones toward a circular target area, called the house, the center of which is approximately 93 feet away. Only one team scores points per end. The team with their stones closest to the center of the target area, called the button, gets one point for each stone between the button and the opposing teams nearest stone. After each end is completed, play is switched to the house at the other end of the sheet.

    Equipment: The entry-level skills required are minimal, too. Curling clubs openly welcome curlers of all ages and abilities. You’re never too young or too old to start curling.

    Stone: Each curling stone is made of pure granite, a very hard stone, that is highly polished. The stones are fairly uniform in size and shape with a maximum weight of 44 lbs., a circumference of 36 in., and a minimum height of 4.5 in. The stone is concave on the bottom, which allows the stone to slide down the ice and curl more than if it had a flat surface. A plastic handle is bolted onto every stone in order to deliver and release it.

    Favorite thing: Well, everyone who comes to Petersburg with me gets the 'No expense, no frills' Grand city tour (all 20 minutes of it). Of course it's best to go in the summertime so you can see all the sights. You'll get to see about the only 5 businesses in town including the post office, bank and local pub. You'll also see lots of large, old empty houses too. According to my grandmother's stories, it used to be a thriving little community back in the day. Of course you pass by my old high school and the former site of my grade school (it burned down Christmas Eve of 1987). You'll probably bump into a few of the locals that will throw a friendly wave as we pass by. And of course nothing would be complete without a stop at my grandmother's house!

    Fondest memory: My best memory(ies) would be of going into grandma/grandpa's on weekends or holidays (I actually lived on a farm 10min away) when I was young and just spending time with them and playing with my friends. I also remember doing a lot of bike riding around town when spending the nite a my grandparents. You always new when it was time to come for dinner because the town had a siren that blew every day at 6pm.
