Ice Skating

Who doesn’t love ice skating? From novice to expert this is a fun activity for the whole family. Though Texas doesn’t always have freezing temperatures there are many locations throughout the state that have amazing skating rinks. Lace up your skates and live out your inner Olympic dreams!

Take a Winter Hike

Hiking isn’t just a summertime activity. Without the Texas heat, enjoy a family outing in the cooler weather. Avoid the summertime crowds and have the trails to yourself with beautiful scenic views. Bundle up because you may even see snow!

Bundle up and get out your telescopes (binoculars work too) and let the littles experience the amazing night sky. Wintertime is the best time for stargazing. The sky is clear with bright planets and a possible meteor sighting.
