    Take advantage of the free docent tours. It's very informative... Some can make you feel you're back in art appreciation class...which is a good thing.

    Take the kids to the downtown ice skating rink. Then try some rides in the amusement park they have set up for Christmas. If your kids are bored at home these hols, this is a nice outing.
