The Winter season can be a truly magical time. Freshly fallen snow, cozy fireplaces, breathtaking scenery that displays a winter wonderland and adventures that come only with the colder weather. These are some of the best winter activities that Southern Airways Express can fly you to so you can experience winter along the Eastern Coast of the United States.

Ice Skating at Frog Pond in Boston

The Frog Pond has been voted the best outdoor ice skating rink in the U.S. according to USA Today. It is located in Boston’s oldest park, Boston Common. Skating at Frog Pond is a longstanding tradition that takes place during the Winter season, typically open from November through March. 

The Nantucket Christmas Stroll

On the first weekend of December every year, Nantucket hosts its annual Christmas Stroll on Main Street. During the Christmas Stroll event, Main Street shuts down to cars and provides live performances, displays, food vendors and even a craft show. Be on the lookout for costumed carolers, Santa himself and special holiday menus at the local restaurants. 

Experience the Lititz Fire and Ice Festival

The 2023 Lititz Fire & Ice will take place towards the end of February and will run for 10 days. Enjoy ice sculptures, food provided by downtown restaurants (in addition to food trucks on select days) and shopping in the charming downtown shops. 

Winter Fun at Boyce Park

Skiing, snowboarding and tubing can all be found at Boyce Park during the winter months in Pittsburgh. You’ll find a little more modest slopes in comparison to Laurel Highlands; however, Boyce Park is only about 25 minutes from the downtown Pittsburgh area and is more affordable. 

Celebrate at the Chinese New Year Parade

Immerse yourself in the Chinese New Year at this annual DC parade. The main theme for each year’s signature parade is dedicated to the zodiac for that year. 2023 will be the year of the rabbit. Expect to see traditional Chinese Dragon Dances, kung fu demonstrations, ornate floats and other traditional Chinese affairs as the parade passes through Chinatown.
