TAKE A TOUR
When the four walls of the home start pressing in, it's time to change your point of view. Take a tour in Montgomery County. It will definitely ease cabin fever. And you may just learn something in the process.
SEE A SHOW
The creative spark of a brilliant theatrical performance is a perfect way to warm up when it's chilly. Likewise, the glow of the silver screen lights up even the darkest night.
CATCH A CONCERT
If you think that the only heart-pounding rush of winter comes from sledding, think again. The electric vibe of a first-rate concert makes a great cold-weather treat.
GO FOR A SPIN
Take a spin on the Carousel at Pottstown. Its menagerie of 50 colorful, rideable animals includes traditional horses, as well as giraffes, zebras, reindeer and even a dog. For those interested in a calmer ride, two chariots are available, one of which is handicapped accessible. Public hours are Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m.

This unforgettable experience, open to flyers as young as three, comes with all the training and equipment needed to take your sense of adventure to new heights.
ENJOY A SHOPPING GETAWAY

SOLVE A PERPLEXING PUZZLE
Keep your creative thinking and problem-solving skills sharp at Escape Room Mystery, Expedition Escape and four more Montco escape room challenges. Grab a group of friends or family members and tackle the puzzles of one of many themed rooms. But think fast! Those who don’t make it out in an hour could be doomed.
Temperatures have fluctuated up and down over the first two weeks of January. But ice conditions at Oaks Center Ice, Hatfield Ice Arena, and The Rink on Old York Road are always perfect. Public skating at all three rinks is available Friday evening and Saturday/Sunday afternoon and evening. Pricing depends on location, day and time but ranges $8-$15, including rentals.
Between the dry air and the muscle needed to scrape windshields and salt sidewalks, winter can be tough on a body. Recharge yourself - body and soul - with an afternoon of luxury, and bring along a friend to share the experience. A stop at Sanctuary Spa 1616 or Essent Spa at the Radnor Hotel will leave you feeling better than ever.
