Christmas Break is the perfect time to get out the house and hit the time, check the final items off your 2021 list and get the new year off on a great start! Here’s a list of over 100 places we visit this year (and loved) or check out these other ideas to make the most of your time off school and work. 


Take A Staycation @ Great Lakes Crossing

Your kids will feel like you’ve travelled a million miles and have memories for a lifetime after an afternoon at Legoland Discovery Center and SEALIFE Michigan! LEGOLAND Discovery Center Michigan is the ultimate indoor LEGO playground – hop on rides, watch a 4D movie, play at the playscape and get creative in one (or all) of the themed LEGO building block areas. At SEALIFE Michigan, kids with be awed by over 250 species and engaging exhibits.


Brighten Up Your Night

The nice thing about early darkness is that there’s more time to take in the lights before bedtime! There’s something magical about holiday lights and there are plenty of places to find them around town.


Visit Detroit

Museums are always fun and these unique exhibits and events make the visit even more special.


Hit the Ice Rink

Winter has arrived and ice skating is a fun seasonal sport. Bundle up and go skating at an outdoor rink!


Plan A Park Date

When you can’t gather indoors, bundle up and head out! Go for a nature walk or let kids run around on the playground while you catch up with extended family or friends over the holiday.


Celebrate The ‘Noon’ Year

It’s been a year! Let’s celebrate the end of 2021 and look forward to the new year. Head to the Mitten Drop at Canterbury Village or have fun at home.
