Skating and sledding are some of the cheapest and easiest ways to enjoy the winter chill.
In Portland, check out the pond at Deering Oaks for a day of skating. The pond was featured in the movie “The Preacher’s Wife” starring Whitney Huston. Orland H. Blake Skating Pond in Yarmouth and The Family Ice Center in Falmouth are also well-known outdoor skating spots.
For sledding check out Payson Park in Portland or The Portland Country Club and Maine Audobon Society in Falmouth. Don’t have a sled? Try using a food tray, inner tube, or aluminum sheet. There’s no better way to feel like a kid again.
