Stay cozy at home
Winter in Muskoka is beautiful. The stunning frozen landscapes and thick, gorgeous snowflakes mean that the region often resembles an enchanting winter wonderland, fit for a snow globe or the front of a holiday card. The only downside? Sometimes, the chilly temperatures can make us tempted to stay at home, cozied up under warm blankets and away from the below-zero temperatures.
Fortunately, there are several options for virtual, at-home fun available from local Muskoka businesses. From online trivia and beer tasting nights to meditation sessions, these virtual experiences were designed for cold winter nights when you want nothing more than to stay cozy inside. So grab a hot drink, choose your favourite at-home experience from this list, and power up your computer for a virtual night in.
