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!
