Do you live in the Toledo area and are looking for something special to do this holiday season? Well I have got ten great places and activities to do with your kids to make this holiday season the most memorable!
1. The Lights Before Christmas at the Toledo Zoo
Take the kids to the zoo and explore it at night! There is even a light show, where the lights are synchronized to music. Hot chocolate is at every turn and you can even warm up in some of the buildings and look at the animals!
2. The Wolcott House Christmas Tour
Explore this lavishly decorated home with your children! This year’s theme is “’Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
3. Children’s Wonderland at Tam-O-Shanter
Kids can make ornaments, go to an elf workshop, ride the train, play putt putt, and more!
4. Toledo Walleye Game
Bundle up and support our local hockey team, the Toledo Walleye! I know, not technically Christmas related, but still fun for the kids! (And a great excuse for hot chocolate!)
5. A Christmas Story House & Museum
Do you and your kids love the movie A Christmas Story? Yes? Well then you will love visiting the home the movie was filmed in. A bit of a drive from Toledo to Cleveland, it will be magical for your kids to practically step right into their beloved film! There is also a gift shop!
6. Imagination Station
Take your kids to this gem in Toledo where they can learn about all things science! They have select holiday hours, so check before you go!
7. Walleye Madness at Midnight
This New Year’s Eve, go on out to Port Clinton and celebrate the New Year as you watch the 20 foot, 600 pound walleye drop! The night is loaded with fun activities for the whole family.
8. Carriage Rides
The Shops at Fallen Timbers offer complementary carriage rides during the weekends from 5-8pm.
9. Visit Santa
The local malls, e.g. The Shops at Fallen Timbers or the Franklin Park Mall, have Santa visiting through Christmas Eve, so bring your kids!
10. Go Ice Skating
Take your kids ice-skating at the local skating rink. The Toledo Zoo even offers ice-skating!Google+
