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.
