What is your Winter plan? We have the holidays for the next 30 days or so and then what? Will you hibernate, gain weight and get caught up on every show anyone has recommended to you? Or, will you take part in Winter?

New York State has so much to offer all year round and Winter can be a magical time with attractions like the Ice Castles in Lake George and Chowder Fest coming to Saratoga.
