Indoor fun during the frigid months


Old Man Winter

By Jeffrey Buck

As the temps continue to drop around the metro area the appeal of indoor activities skyrocket. There is plenty of fun activities outdoors that take place but it’s still nice to get inside and find an activity that is both fun and family friendly. Over the years I’ve tried to find the best places for both kids and adults to escape the wind and snow to let out some much needed energy.
