OF COURSE I want you to get outside and enjoy the winter landscape, but I’ll understand if also want to drink hot cocoa by the fire, too. Remember that our trees, shrubs, and perennials need winter just as much as they need the other seasons, and there is a beautiful glory to cold weather and snow. So bundle up and get out there!

“Listen to a read-aloud, enjoy winter scavenger hunts, crafts and short outdoor hikes. Then come back inside to warm up by the fireplace while sipping on hot cocoa and nibbling on a treat. A picnic and movie in the winter? YES!”
“Visitors can stroll along the illuminated Scioto Mile to Bicentennial Park to enjoy a stunning holiday light display. The Scioto Mile features over 200,000 holiday lights, as well as dynamic seasonal imagery projected onto the Scioto Mile Fountain to create a one-of-a-kind visual experience.”
