Boxing Week is a great excuse to try something new or visit a tried-and-true family favorite. At The Strong National Museum of Play, you’ll find prehistoric fun! Your kids can experience activities centered around the Dinosaurs: Land of Fire and Ice exhibit and see what life was like for dinosaurs.

Then, head south and get hands on when you visit the Corning Museum of Glass. A holiday tradition, you can get your family’s picture taken in front of their 14-foot ornament tree, or make your own glass ornament or snowman to take home.

For Couples:
It’s always the right time of year for wine tasting! Head to holiday week at the wineries for a picturesque wine tour along the Lake Erie Grape Belt. It’s the perfect romantic outing, or works well in a group if you’re traveling with friends! Did I mention the events are free?
