Winter is growing closer and closer. The temperatures are becoming colder and colder. You may want to stay inside snuggled under a blanket, avoiding the outside. Or you may want to find out more about what Winona has to offer during the wintertime. This list of winter activities will give you a nice break from all the schoolwork and allow you to enjoy the season!
1) Go to the Lake Lodge Recreation Center
They are open again starting in December for the majority of the month. Check out their website for their winter hours, and look into getting a membership that is only $10 and is good for a whole year! Some awesome winter activities they have to offer include ice-skating, broomball and snowshoeing.
2) Cross-country ski
There are different trails you can ski here in town. We all know it can be tougher to get exercise when winter rolls around, but you’ll be able get a good exercise and take in the bluffs all at the same time. If you love skiing, this is an activity you should consider this season.
3) Grab a warm cup of Joe
Whether it’s Mugby Junction, Blooming Grounds, Acoustic Cafe or whatever is your absolute favorite place for caffeine in Winona; it’s nice to reward yourself after a tough week, or maybe just because you deserve it, with a nice cup of coffee that’ll warm you up this frigid winter!
4) Go up to Garvin Heights
Take the trip and enjoy the beautiful view. It’s gorgeous to see the ground covered in snow and there’s no better way to see that sight from all the way up at Garvin Heights.
5) Build a snowman or have a snowball fight
I don’t care what anyone says, you’re never too old to build a snowman. Bundle up and find your warmest gloves. Grab a friend and see how tall you can make it. If you’d rather challenge your friend to a snowball fight, do that. Build a fort or make a snow angel – the choices are endless!
