Come join us for winter family fun and relaxation, Connecticut Gold Coast-style, here at Hotel Zero Degrees Norwalk! As 2020 (a year like none other) winds down and segues frostily into 2021, enjoy boutique coziness and pitch-perfect amenities with us while exploring what the Fairfield County winterscape has to offer.
Here are a few ideas for wintertime itineraries on a Hotel Zero Degrees Norwalk family getaway!
You and the fam have plenty of opportunities for getting out and playing in the snow (or, depending on conditions, the snow-free wintertime countryside). Go winter hiking or snowshoeing in such preserves as Bear Mountain Reservation, Collis P. Huntington State Park, the Paugussett State Forest, or (just over the state border in New York) Ward Pound Ridge Reservation.
You’re not far from some fine downhill runs, either, at such ski areas as Thunder Ridge, Woodbury, and Mohawk Mountain.
If the weather’s a little unfriendly for outdoor adventure or sightseeing, consider one of the many family-friendly indoor attractions in our neck of the woods. You might opt for some ice skating over at the SoNo Ice House (300 Wilson Ave, Norwalk, CT), for example.
Then there’s the Maritime Aquarium (10 N. Water Street, Norwalk, CT), a perennial all-ages favorite and presently open with a visitor protocol adjusted for COVID-19 best practices. Enjoy up-close looks at some native wildlife of Long Island Sound and its watershed, from lion’s mane jellies, cod, and stripers to loggerhead sea turtles, sand tiger sharks, and harbor seals. Creatures from much farther afield also call the aquarium home: giant Pacific octopus, bearded dragons, meerkats, and poison dart frogs among them.
Holiday Pleasures in & Around Norwalk
You and your family can also soak up some of the festive vibe on offer this time of year in Norwalk and Fairfield County in general. Over in nearby Greenwich, for example, you can take in the 12th annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival at Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses (437 N. Street, Greenwich, CT), where from November 27th through December 22nd some antlered visitors from the North Pole will be holding court—with COVID safety in mind—Monday through Saturday from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM.
