A time to relax and enjoy the company of your friends and family has finally come.
To get the most out of one’s winter break, here are some of my favorite things to do over the holidays.
One place I make sure I go every year is Castle Noel. Castle Noel is located 260 South Court St., Medina, OH 44256, and it is America’s largest indoor Christmas entertainment attraction. There are original Hollywood Christmas movie props and costumes from “The Grinch,” “Elf,” and “Christmas with the Kranks.” Castle Noel costs $16 per person and children under three can get in free of cost. It is a wonderful family environment, making it a great place to take your kids.
Another great place to wander if you are feeling bored is the Glow at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Their address is 11030 East Blvd., Cleveland, OH 44106. Glow transports you to a world full of seasonal cheer, where all-new wonders and returning traditions await you. Whimsical train ride, musicians and carolers, decorate a gingerbread house, decorated trees, holiday shopping, and more. If you are a member of the Cleveland Botanical Gardens your admission is free, and other than that an adult ticket costs 16$ and a child costs 12$.
Last but not least is one of my favorite family traditions. Every year my family goes to Sleigh & Carriage Rides at Ma & Pa’s. It is located in Burton, Ohio. It is open every winter all season long. Ma and Pa hitch up the sleighs and take you out through the woods and out in the field and then back to the cabin for a warm fire. Ma’s homemade bakery, hot chocolate and maple coffee is one you cannot miss. Reservations are required so make sure you call ahead. Sleigh Rides run Saturday and Sunday and some weekdays all winter long. If there is no snow, no need to worry. Ma & Pa have a sleigh that can operate without snow.
