Fun Indoor Winter Activities Around Detroit and Ann Arbor, MI

A young family playing with giant lego pieces.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the cold weather left with the holiday season? Well sadly, that isn’t the reality, and baby, it’s cold outside. This winter has set numerous records all across the United States. Between daily record low temperatures set from Florida through South Carolina, New York, Buffalo and of course, Flint, Michigan, it’s safe to say the entire country is ready for that spring warm up! For the next few weeks, unfortunately, this is just wishful thinking, but, don’t let the cold weather turn you into an indoor couch potato! These events and activities can be enjoyed in any weather, sub-degree temperature, or snow storm!
