Fun Outdoor Activities in the WinterTuesday, December 1, 2020
We’re near the end of 2020, and the winter season is just beginning. But just because the weather is getting chillier and the leaves have fallen doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the great outdoors! That goes for those living in an apartment, as well. There are plenty of activities to take advantage of during this time of year that doesn’t always result in staying indoors.
Michigan is naturally one of the most beautiful states in the country. Therefore, the wintertime is a time of year when the air might be cool, but the views are breathtaking. By getting out in the great outdoors, we are changing up our day-to-day routines and allowing ourselves to get some much-needed fresh air every so often.
In order to take advantage of the beauty Michigan winters have in store, take a look at some of the ideas we’ve come up with to make the best of the outdoors this winter!
Areas to Sled
With the abundance of snowfall coming this winter, one of the most fun and best ways to spend your day is to go sledding on a snow-covered hill. Some notable sledding destinations near Oakland Township include the Sledding Hill at Lost Lake Nature Park just north of Stoney Creek Rd., the Jesse Decker Park Sled Hill on the west side of Squirrel Rd. and south of Silverbell Rd., and right near the Moceri Companies properties at Bald Mountain Recreation Area. All these local destinations make for the perfect outing on a sunny and snowy afternoon!
We live in Michigan, and since we live through four seasons, winter presents its own natural beauty like the other seasons every year. Snow is one of the best elements to shoot for a variety of reasons. Snow is bright and white, allowing a lot of light into the camera for some of the best quality images. Freshly fallen snow on the tree branches makes for one perfect backdrop for a family photo. Whether you have a nice camera or a smartphone with a built-in camera, take a day when the snow falls and see what nature can do! Visit a nearby park with an abundance of trees where the branches light up with snow.
Hiking in the Woods
Imagine the beauty you can discover by hiking the trails at your nearby recreation area! Especially after a fresh batch of snow falls onto the ground, the trees become lined with snow, making for a breathtaking excursion. Morning or daytime, hiking in the woods is a wonderful activity to not only do year-round in Michigan but especially in the winter! Head out to the nearby Stoney Creek Metropark, the Bald Mountain Trail Head, or the Inwood Hiking Trails are options that offer natural beauty mixed with the lovely addition of freshly fallen snow.
Light Shows & Displays
Holidays lights are a spectacle everyone from every age or background can enjoy! From colorful string lights to giant snowmen on the front lawn, light displays are a fun and interesting way to spend an evening with friends or family. Take a trip around your area in and out of the neighborhoods to have a look at how festive your neighbors are this year. This can be a fun after-dinner activity for children to be dazzled at all the beautiful lights people put up.
If you are looking for a big spectacle near you, make sure to check out the Big Bright Light Show in downtown Rochester. For many years, the shops and restaurants lined along Main Street in downtown Rochester have lights strung all along each and every building. Each building has a different color of lights with a dazzling presentation each year. This makes for a fun evening out on the town at your favorite local restaurant and a walk down the brightly-lit streets.
