With snow on the way today adding to the inches we already have in Grafton, we thought we would turn back time, and share with you #stayandplaymoment talking about places to spend your time having fun in the snow! Take a look!
We didn’t forget about you Get Away to Grafton and #stayandplaymoment friends! We’re ready to go for installment number two this week of our weekly #stayandplaymoment
This week, we’re trying to keep things positive even though the future seems… well… full of SNOW! That’s right… we’re expecting snow this Friday!! ☃️🌬️If this really happens, we want you to know about some of the many places in and near Grafton that are great for outdoor fun! Lets get started!
For those that want to keep up their athletic regiment outdoors, consider utilizing the Ozaukee Interurban Trail. The trail runs through Grafton, and many other local communities totaling a 30 mile stretch. Enjoy bird watching, cross country skiing, running, and walking during the snow covered months. You won’t be disappointed! For more information about the Ozaukee Interurban Trail, please go to: http://www.interurbantrail.us/⛷️🐦
Depending on the amount of snow we get, sledding is always another great family fun option! Be sure to check out Spring Street Hill in Cedarburg, and Mule Hill at Mee Kwon park in Mequon. Besides the traditional sled, toboggans and other devices that propel riders down the hills are always great to use! Both of these locations are very popular spots for sledding, so keep in mind that once you get to the bottom of the hill, you’re going to want to keep moving to avoid collisions. ❄️
It won’t be cold enough just yet, but we hope that when the time comes, you’ll keep in mind that Grafton has the perfect spot for ice skating outdoors! Last year, the Milwaukee River running through Grafton was the perfect location for ice skating and ice hockey. With the help of locals, snow was removed to make an ice rink large enough for the crowd in attendance. We’re sure this year the frozen river will be just as popular! ⛸️🏒
After a long day of outdoor fun this weekend, make sure to stop by our friends in and around downtown Grafton for a coffee, hot chocolate, or your favorite hot beverage! Be sure to check out our friends NSeven Coffee Company Fiddleheads Coffee Roasters, Colectivo Coffee and more! ☕
