Throw on a scarf, save some money

Things start to get dull af­ter the thrill of the hol­i­days is over. It’s only then that you re­ally seem to re­al­ize that it’s win­ter, it’s cold, ev­ery­thing is dead, and there’s noth­ing to do for at least two months. It can be a de­press­ing time, sure. But it doesn’t have to be, since I know a lit­tle se­cret… not ev­ery­thing worth do­ing is on hia­tus till Spring. And what’s even bet­ter: A lot of the things that are fun to do year-round are of­fered at dis­count prices sim­ply be­cause it’s win­ter! just so ex­pen­sive. It’s a place that I would visit with or with­out a child. The bad part is the cost, but when it’s cold you don’t have to worry so much about that part. When tem­per­a­tures fall be­low 45 de­grees, the ad­mis­sion price drops by 50 per­cent! And while some of the an­i­mals will not be al­lowed out­side in that weather (pri­mates), a lot of the an­i­mals pre­fer the cold, so ex­pect to see a lot of pan­das. Also, just like the game ranch, the crowds de­crease dra­mat­i­cally when it’s cold. To­tally worth bundling up for!
