Fun Outdoor Activities in the Winter

            We’re near the end of 2020, and the winter season is just beginning.  But just because the weather is getting chillier and the leaves have fallen doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the great outdoors!  That goes for those living in an apartment, as well.  There are plenty of activities to take advantage of during this time of year that doesn’t always result in staying indoors.

            Michigan is naturally one of the most beautiful states in the country.  Therefore, the wintertime is a time of year when the air might be cool, but the views are breathtaking.  By getting out in the great outdoors, we are changing up our day-to-day routines and allowing ourselves to get some much-needed fresh air every so often.

            In order to take advantage of the beauty Michigan winters have in store, take a look at some of the ideas we’ve come up with to make the best of the outdoors this winter!

Areas to Sled

            With the abundance of snowfall coming this winter, one of the most fun and best ways to spend your day is to go sledding on a snow-covered hill.  Bloomer Park in Rochester is on the corner of E. Avon Rd. and John R Rd.  This park features three different hills across the property for sledders of all ages.  Borden Park in Rochester Hills is another park close by, right on the corner of E. Hamlin Rd. and John R Rd.  This park is great for families as the hills are smaller and the sledding is not as intense.  Booth Park in Birmingham is located at the southwest intersection of Old Woodward Rd. and Harmon Rd., north of the Rouge River branch.  This park is not as hilly as Borden Park, so it would be perfect for families with small children.

Winter Photoshoots

            We live in Michigan, and since we live through four seasons, winter presents its own natural beauty like the other seasons every year.  Snow is one of the best elements to shoot for a variety of reasons.  Snow is bright and white, allowing a lot of light into the camera for some of the best quality images.  Freshly fallen snow on the tree branches makes for one perfect backdrop for a family photo.  Whether you have a nice camera or a smartphone with a built-in camera, take a day when the snow falls and see what nature can do!  Visit a nearby park with an abundance of trees where the branches light up with snow.

Hiking in the Woods

            Imagine the beauty you can discover by hiking the trails at your nearby recreation area!  Especially after a fresh batch of snow falls on the ground, the trees become lined with snow, making for a breathtaking excursion.  Morning or daytime, hiking in the woods is a wonderful activity to not only do year-round in Michigan but especially in the winter!  Head out to the nearby Riverwood Park along the Clinton River, or head up to Hawk Woods Nature Center for an outing.

Light Shows & Displays

            One of the best local light displays near Auburn Hills includes the one in downtown Rochester, also known as the Big Bright Light Show.  For many years, the shops and restaurants lined along Main Street in downtown Rochester have lights strung all along each and every building.  Each building has a different color of lights with a dazzling presentation each year.  Plus, if you’re not too up to traveling, the light display right in downtown Auburn Hills is intimate and very tastefully decorated.

            Our Dancing Lights is a nearby lights show held in a subdivision in Auburn Hills on the corner of N Squirrel Rd. and Tienken Rd.  The show is beautifully designed with thousands of lights strung throughout.  Even better, the show is partnered with Rainbow Connection, which raises donations for Michigan children with life-threatening illnesses during the holiday season.

            The Village of Rochester is another area near Auburn Hills with its roadways lined with beautiful lights for all to see.  You can’t help but notice the gorgeous light display along the exterior of the Village with just about every tree dressed top-to-bottom in colorful lights.  The streets of the Village are also tastefully decorated during the holidays, making outdoor shopping and dining an enjoyable and worthwhile occasion at this destination.
