Valparaiso isn’t far from Lake Michigan, so every winter our town gets hammered with cold temperatures and heavy, wet lake-effect snow. It’s enough to dampen your love of the entire season.
But this year, we at Paul Sur Buick GMC have vowed not to let the winter blues get us down. There’s plenty to do during winter in the area, so we recommend checking out these memorable winter activities in Valparaiso.
The best place go sledding or tobogganing is the Forest Park Golf Course, which invites visitors to its hills when the snow falls. Rogers-Lakewood Park does the same thing. Sledding is an excellent way for the family to spend time outside together.
Forest Park Golf Course also offers cross-country skiing trails, as do Sunset Hill Farm and the Indiana Dunes State Park. If you’ve never tried cross-country skiing, the Valparaiso area is the perfect place to try it due to the heavy snow.
Our personal favorite way to spend an afternoon is ice skating at Tower Park or Deep River Waterpark. These local hot-spots transform into winter wonderlands where you can challenge your balance and glide on the ice.
No matter how you spend this winter, we wish you a very merry holiday season!
