Were you planning on spending your holiday break going skiing or frolicking in the snow? Has this warm weather put a damper on your plans and your mood? If you’re looking for alternatives to the winter fun you were planning on having, try the following activities…
1. Take The Plunge
There has never been a better year for the annual Polar Plunge
on New Year’s Day. Although the long-range forecast has the temperature dropping into the 30s by then, that’s still much warmer than it usually is this time of year!
2. Catch A Hockey Game
Head to the Glens Falls Civic Center for the Adirondack Thunder’s
home games on December 26, 29, and 31. All members of your family will enjoy the fast action of professional hockey!
3. Get Wild
At The Wild Center, that is! The one-of-a-kind attraction in Tupper Lake is offering a series of special programs December 26-31 and January 2-3 from 10am-5pm when it’s usually closed for the season. Activities include guided walks, animal-related events, films, and crafts!
4. Search For Treasure
Have you ever been geocaching before? There are thousands of geocaches in the region just waiting to be found! Sign up for a free account at www.geocaching.com, and start your search. All you need is a GPS device and a sense of adventure!
5. Make A Scavenger Hunt
Whether you have kids or adults to entertain, scavenger hunts can be fun for all ages! Your clues could lead to physical objects, or bits of information that your searchers could have to piece together. Lake George Village is very walkable, which makes it the perfect place to collect information or pictures, like this one
of a sign you may have noticed. You could also gather details from historical markers in Battlefield Park
