With the weather getting colder, it might be tempting to spend all your time snuggled up in your warm, cozy bed this holiday season. However, this is a great opportunity to experience new things and create lasting memories for your family. With that being said, we list some exciting Christmas events and places to visit.
Instead of the usual splurging and shopping this holiday season, why not try something new? Perhaps you can visit a new restaurant with a Yuletide-themed menu? Or why not visit a local park decorated with lights and whimsical ornaments? With a little bit of creativity, you don’t even have to spend a fortune to make Christmas memorable and fun.
Antelope Community Park
A park is perfect for a relaxing stroll, a picnic, a visit to a farmer’s market, a ball game, or anything your heart desires. And the best thing about it? It’s completely free. Luckily, Antelope has a 41-acre well-maintained community park known for its stunning garden, nature center, and paved walkways dotted with trees and benches – perfect for a quiet morning walk.
If you have small kids, Antelope Community Park is a must-visit destination – whether it’s the holiday season or just a weekend getaway. It has an expansive playground, bike racks, seven tennis courts, a baseball field, two softball fields, and picnic areas with tables (some are reservable).
The park also includes these facilities: restrooms, two parking lots, sports lighting, barbecue areas, unpaved trails, and an aquatic center (for rentals) that has kid-friendly water features and multiple swimming pools.

Scandia Fun Center
If you’re looking for an amusement park that offers kid-friendly activities, Scandia Fun Center is the perfect place thanks to its rides and two miniature golf courses with a stunning Scandinavian-themed landscape that includes more than 12,000 flowers, cascading waterfalls, streams, and rivers.
And if you or your kids want to improve your batting skills, you can practice all day long in the amusement center’s batting cages that include nine hardball pitching machines, seven slow-pitch softball machines, and four fast-pitch softball machines.
While Scandia is an amusement park, it gives educational tours for kids who want to learn about gravity, centrifugal force, aerodynamics, friction, renewable energy, hydroelectric power, electric powers, and other laws of physics. Plus, they teach classroom subjects through hands-on and real-life experience to help kids understand complex theories. Who says that fun and science don’t mix well?
Other amenities you can find in Scandia: snack bar, bumper boats, slides, race cars, spinning/flying rides, an arcade game area, and a party pavilion.
