November activities—indoor, outdoor and all around


Here we go—into the dark with turning our clocks back this weekend. Even more reason to get out and about! Bonus, you'll burn off all that extra sugar energy....or calories for those of us that sat a wee bit too close to the candy bowl. 

So far, not as many events on the calendar as last month but will continue add any that come up. No worries, there's still plenty of adventures to be had below. 

FYI: A few too many hiccups with the calendar feature I added last week so removed it for now. 

Added 11/14/22: WS Blog has launched their 2022 Holiday Guide that's updated daily for even more ideas.
