Profitt Report: Low-to-no cost ideas to beat the winter blues
It’s easy to let the winter blues set in this time of year with several weeks of cold, snowy weather still ahead of us. However, if we must deal with the snow, we might as well take advantage of it.
The Go Great Lakes Bay Visitors Bureau has some cost-effective ideas of how we can celebrate the cold. First, have you ever been snowshoeing?
No snow shoes? No problem. Stable Outdoor Outfitters in Saginaw rents them for $20 a day.
For $6 an hour, you can feel the winter wind in your hair at Midland City Forest where they provide a tobogganing run.
If indoor activities are more your bag, the Chippewa Nature Center offers an indoor space for kids to learn and play, along with a wildlife viewing area for kids of all ages.
Sports lovers, you’re covered, too!
“The Saginaw Spirit, they’re in their season right now and we have hotel packages… at participating hotels, if someone were to book their stay, they get four free tickets to their game,” said Amber Balley, Travel Marketing Manager at the Go Great Lakes Bay Visitors Bureau.
