Winter's Here, Outside Fun Still Possible
We have a couple thoughts for enjoying the upcoming winter months.
Your teens are holding a car wash at the high school Saturday. The grandparents volunteered to take the younger children to a movie Sunday afternoon. Your tweens take tap on Wednesday evening. It’s your time. Take it.
Each week, we’ll tell you about one great idea to give you a much deserved break, and make your life a little easier, maybe a whole lot easier.
Some weekends, there just aren't any events—think Thanksgiving weekend, right after the December holidays, or even the weeks leading up to the holidays.
But we are never at a loss for something to do around this county.
About two weeks ago, it snowed, and earlier this week it was 60 degrees outside. Mother Nature may be flipping back and forth, but in the spirit of the upcoming holiday season, we thought we’d give you a couple great ideas for cold-weather fun.
- Cross country skiing is available at Spooky Brook Golf Course in Franklin when weather conditions permit it. An introductory course will be held in December, but as long as there is snow on the ground, cross country skiing is allowed both there and on the trails of the Environmental Education Center in Basking Ridge. The trails are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Franklin and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Basking Ridge. Skiers are required to go with another person. Check the Somerset County Park Commissionwebsite for more information.
- The Bridgewater Sports Arena is open, with a free day of ice skating Saturday from 3:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Participants choosing to take part in the event will receive 15 minutes of group instruction, followed by open skating time. If you have not registered for that, feel free to take part in other days of ice skating at the arena, and check for information by visiting thewebsite.
