An islander's job is never done!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been out for almost a year now, but the delightful adventure filled with fuzzy-friends continues to surprise players.

Since Animal Crossing: New Horizons leaves you to your own devices, Islanders continue to make new discoveries all the time. Whether you're a longtime island-dweller or a new resident, here are things you can do in Animal Crossing: New Horizons that you (probably) didn't know you could.
