It is going to be a perfect weekend to get outside and enjoy the warmer winter weather. Plenty of sunshine and warmer temperature will have us all thinking spring during our long weekend. Most folks have Monday off for President's Day so why not take the family for an outdoor adventure.

Two places come to mind for me. One is the Bear Mountain Inn where you can enjoy a meal and take the kids skating. All weekend long they have sessions open to the public. Check the schedule here. What a great way to enjoy a sunny winter day then to get out on the ice.

If you are hoping to take in a lot more then just skating then Mohonk Mountain House might be your answer. They have day packages that include brunch. Plus they offer skating at the pavilion, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and snow tubing. Check out all the activities by clicking here.
