Winter Wonderland

Posted on: December 1st, 2019 by admin

We’ve all heard the news.  It’s going to be a long winter.  Whether you enjoy the cold and snow or not, the list of available activities in the winter goes significantly down, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do.  There is actually a lot to do in Ocean County and we’ve started a list of places to go, things to do, and events to check out this winter.

Ice skating

Ice skating can be fun for the whole family and there are quite a few places around where you can go.

Parks Programs

Even though it’s cold outside, there is still so much to enjoy outdoors in Ocean County.

Enjoy the Arts

While some may find museums and are galleries boring, we think that if you expand your definition of a museum, you can find some really fun places to go.

  • Insectopolis: Have little ones at home that love bugs?  This is the place for you!  http://www.insectropolis.com/
  • Robert J. Novins Planetarium: Not just for space junkies anymore.  The planetarium shows movies, has laser shows, kid-themed events, and much, much more.  https://www.ocean.edu/planetarium/
  • Ocean County Artists Guild: Showcasing 2 artists from Ocean County every month, a free trip here helps support the local arts.  https://www.ocartistsguild.org/
  • John F. Peto Museum: As described on their website: “To promote the legacy of John F. Peto, internationally renowned artist, by maintaining his home and studio as a working museum, by fostering educational opportunities in the arts and partnering with the larger community”.  https://petomuseum.org/
  • Exit 82 Theatre Company:  A non-profit performing arts organization, they have comedy shows, parent’s night out events, and of course lots of wonderful productions.  https://www.exit82theatre.com/
  • Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts: Located on the campus of OCC, this center is dedicated to giving Ocean County access to lots of great arts and entertainment.  http://www.grunincenter.org/

Outside the box

No matter the age, reason, or price range, there is always something to do if you look hard enough.  We hope we’ve given you some ideas of ways to pass the time this winter.
