27 Ways to Love Where You Live

There’s no place like home

It’s said that finding joy in small moments is what makes life extraordinary, and that discovery exists not in seeing new landscapes but in a renewed view. While it may be tempting to hide indoors when the weather is, let’s face it, freezing, it’s also an opportunity to explore the hidden gems and simple pleasures that go hand-in-gloved-hand with living in and around Bedford. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite things to do in the colder months, whether solo or with family and friends, as well as some on our winter wishlist.
