While Winter break is right around the corner, many people have three things on the agenda: celebrate Christmas Eve, Christmas, and the New Year! But these celebrations only take up three out of eleven days to ourselves. Here are the top 8 things you could do while enjoying Winter break!

1. La Salette
La Salette is one of the many ways to get into the Christmas spirit! It showcases more than 300,000 lights on display on over 10 acres. La Salette is open from Thanksgiving Day to the first Sunday in the new year, daily from 5-9 p.m., located in Attleboro, Massachusetts. It also features a concession for hot chocolate, snacks, and even a hay ride!

2. Holiday Lights Spectacular
If you aren’t a fan of traveling out of state to see festive lights, there is a local festive light showing at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence. Unlike La Salette, it is a drive-thru that lasts approximately ten minutes. It is a simple yet fun way to get in the holiday spirit.

3. Ice Skating
One local ice skating rink is the Bank Newport City Center, located in the heart of Rhode Island, Providence. Not only can you skate on the rink, but you can also use a bumper car! It’s a new and fun experience for anyone.

4. Sledding and Tubing
Sledding, skiing, and tubing can be a fun experience once more snow falls in Rhode Island. There is no need to travel far since you can sled and tube in your own neighborhood or even in your own backyard.

5. Skiing and Snowboarding
While you could ski or snowboard locally, it is difficult to find a steep slope to do so. One good place to travel to is Yawgoo Valley Ski Area & Water Park, located in Exeter, which is a great place to go if you want to do a winter sport.

6. Watch a Christmas Play
While watching a Christmas movie can be fun, it is an even better experience to go out and watch a play! One play showing at Trinity Repertory in Providence is the Christmas Carol. It is showing from November 4th to January 2nd.

7. Have a Snowball Fight
Once enough snow is on the ground, you can organize a snowball fight! It is a fun and effective way to restrict yourself from being indoors.

8. Build a Gingerbread House
If you want to do a fun activity to celebrate Christmas but don’t want to leave the comfort of your home, you can build a gingerbread house. It’s a great bonding experience and a good way to stay warm and cozy.
