Are you feeling the winter blues? Going a little stir crazy from the daily grind – work, home, sleep, repeat? There’s no need to let the chilly temperatures get you down when there’s much to do in The Great Indoors.
When The Great Outdoors are a bit too cold to spend much time in we can all go to plan B – The Great Indoors. This is the perfect time of year to check out the latest museum exhibits, shows at the local theater, and much more! We want to help inspire you to go out and explore The Great Indoors so we’ve compiled a quick list of some magnificent indoor sights to see and experiences to be had:
Buildings With a View/Covered Observation Decks
Most cities have at least one tall building where spectators can ascend to the top and check out the vistas. Getting high above the city feels inspiring and may provide a renewed sense of motivation despite the season.
Empire State Building Observatory – NYC
One World Observatory – NYC
Space Needle – Seattle
OUE Skyspace – LA
Stock up on Historical Knowledge
Once spring arrives, it’ll be all outdoor fun all the time. In the meantime, take advantage of the weather to expand the brain! And support your local museums! Many museums offer permanent exhibits that are a constant part of the museum, which you may have already visited. But most museums also have temporary exhibits lasting only a short while. If you have yet to visit the temporary exhibit, now is a perfect time!
Museum of Science and Industry – Chicago
Museum of Fine Arts – Boston
Explore the Depths of The Seas….Indoors!
The last frontier of our expansive globe – the world’s oceans. Deep, dark, and filled with incredible creatures, our world’s oceans are fascinating and exciting to learn about. Aquariums not only provide useful information, but they are bright, cheery, and remind us that warm weather will be upon us once again! Even if you’ve been to your local aquarium before, chances are there’s at least one new exhibit or two.
New England Aquarium – Boston
Shedd Aquarium – Chicago
Greater Cleveland Aquarium – Cleveland
Tennessee Aquarium – Nashville
Enjoy a Night or Day, at The Theater
Having a reason to gather your loved ones, dress up, and maybe even go out to a nice dinner, is such fun – especially in wintertime! Whether you prefer plays, symphonies, ballet, opera, or something else, the theater is a wonderful Great Indoor activity. If you’ve previously only ventured to the theater to see a play, perhaps this season you try out a ballet. Or if symphonies are your go-to, then maybe an Opera would be a nice change of pace.
Boston Opera House – Boston
Broadway – NYC
Chicago Symphony Orchestra – Chicago
Metropolitan Opera – NYC
No matter which city you choose, there are plentiful Great Indoor options to entertain. Take the kids to the aquarium, go on a date night to the theater, or learn about an ancient civilization. The Great Indoor adventures are never-ending, especially in the big cities! One great way to spend a week or weekend exploring, without breaking the bank, are to purchase city passes. By paying one flat fee, your city pass will give you access to dozens of attractions.
