If you're already getting cabin fever this winter or simply need a break from binge-watching your favorite Netflix series, there is a lot to do around Western Michigan this winter. If you're looking for family-friendly activities, we have some recommendations for you. From holiday light shows to winter markets, there is no reason to spend the entire winter cooped up. This season is one of the most enjoyable and beautiful times of year, so we celebrate it in a big way.
You might just run into one of our real estate agents out at one of these local events:

- Griff's IceHouse West - 4444 Holland Ave, Holland, MI 49424
It's the perfect time of year to learn how to ice skate, and Griff's IceHouse West is the place to do it. The arena hosts a Learn To Skate USA program that is suited for kids age 3+ and adults. A six-week skating session is $99 and includes rental skates, and there are classes held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the winter.

There is lots to do at Pigeon Creek Park this winter. This 444-acre park is one of the area's top cross-country skiing and sled riding destinations, and a nice place to get some fresh air and take-in the scenery. You'll find plenty of groomed trails and sledding hills, and you can even warm-up at the park lodge. It's open daily as long as the park has enough snow. There is no admission fee, and skis and snowshoes can be rented onsite.
