Seasonal Light Displays and Events
‘Tis the season to be jolly! Our community likes to get in the holiday spirit with plenty of festive activities, including Christmas caroling, light displays, Santa’s workshops and holiday markets. Embrace the magic of the season at Winterfest, shop till you drop at a holiday market, enjoy the beauty of twinkling Christmas lights and make memories with loved ones.
Things to Do in Winter
Chilly winter can make you want to hunker down on the couch for the season, but fortunately, there are lots of fun things to do to keep boredom at bay. Winter sports such as skiing, tubing and ice skating are all great ways to enjoy the elements. If you’d rather be indoors, try a romantic date night such as a cooking class, a weekend spa getaway or a cozy dinner with wine by the fire. The kids will love visiting an indoor water park, and the whole family can enjoy a day at the museum.
A fun way to explore our community and support local businesses is to embark on a cafe crawl. Gather your coffee buddy and hit a few coffee shops you’ve been meaning to visit. Order a seasonal beverage—and maybe a pastry or two—have a seat and soak up each unique vibe. Continue on to local bookstores, which may have cafes of their own, or visit a few bakeries to see what they offer.
