It seems half the country is covered in snow. Even cities like Nashville and Atlanta that almost get no snow (or very little at least) keep experiencing snow dump after snow dump. Now the natural temptation, particularly when you have kids at home and the weather is less than inviting is to, ah, stay home. It’s warm in here, and why would I want to have to brave that mess outside. Well, with all due consideration for safety, of course, here are some fun things for those families who need to get out and are prepared to brave the elements:
Nashville - This town is known for country music, but did you know they have an outstanding ballet troupe? Well, for those looking for something different that a family can enjoy together, consider checking out the Nashville Ballet’s performance of Peter and the Wolf.
Atlanta - This city has a world class aquarium. If you have not been there you must. But if you want a really special treat be sure to book a Behind the Scenes Tour at Georgia Aquarium. A real Georgia peach!
DC - Okay, you’ll need to bundle up for this one. Outdoor Ice Skating in the Sculpture Garden of the National Gallery of Art. Beautiful views of this incredible city on ice.
NYC - If the idea of venturing as far west as the Hudson River on a freezing cold day does not appeal, we get it. But this trip is worth it! All hands on deck to the Intrepid, a retired aircraft carrier open to all. Great demonstrations and hands on exhibits await all.
Boston - Another great aquarium is the New England Aquarium, where every Friday is Aqua Kids Family Day. Hear stories, create art and see live sea animal demonstrations.
Okay, that’s it for now. If you can do it safely, get out and have a great time!
