With this list of fun wintertime activities, you’re sure to create long-lasting happy memories as a family:

Outdoor Ice Skating

The T-Mobile Arena is opening this year for “Holiday at the Park”. In addition to skating around an 80 foot Christmas tree, you can enjoy shopping, food, games and more! The attraction will be open through January 7, although it will close over the Christmas holiday (December 24 and 25). Stages are also a part of the planned festivities. Watch a movie, hear a concert or enjoy a DJ skate night. Check the website for more details. Dress warm and have fun!

See Santa at Town Square

Plan your visit with this special beloved Christmas character at the Town Square where you’ll find everything decked out to the nines in Christmas décor. In addition to Santa, you can enjoy snow in the square which magically appears daily at 7 PM through December 23rd. Don’t miss this magical winter wonderland right here in Vegas!

Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Garden

Enjoy “Holiday Glamour” at Bellagio’s Conservatory. Featuring 14,000 square feet of flowers, plants and trees, every season the conservatory is specially prepared to celebrate. In the winter, the main attraction is Holiday Glamour, which runs through January 1. Then, the gardens are transformed for Chinese New Year which runs from January 8 through March 3. Make sure you check it out!

Ethel M Chocolates Holiday Cactus Garden

Drive out to Henderson for a taste of Ethel M’s delicious chocolates and to see over 1 million dazzling Christmas lights on display in the shop’s cactus gardens. The attraction is open daily from sundown to 10 pm through January 1, 2017. This year, the chocolate shop is debuting a synthetic ice skating rink visitors can also enjoy. With your ticket, delight in a free cup of hot chocolate!

Skiing Trip for the Day or Overnight

Head up to the Mt. Charleston Resort for an overnight retreat in the snow! Alternatively, do a day trip to ski at Lee Canyon. Whether you’d like to sled, have a snow fight, hike in the snow or do some full-fledged skiing, these venues are the perfect place to start. Just 30 minutes from Las Vegas, you’ll find your winter wonderland quite close-by!

As the weather gets colder, it can be harder to convince your little ones to play outside. Avoid cabin fever and help them get their exercise by engaging in any one of these fun, seasonal activities!
