Things to do With Your Friends in Winter 

With winter  coming and temperatures dropping it might seem like the only thing to do with your friends is stay indoors but there are so many fun things that you can do with your friends during the winter. 

Lets start off with something small and simple yet filled with so much fun. Movie night! Gather some of your closest friends, put on some warm clothes and sit back and watch a movie. Don’t forget the snacks. Make a nice cup of hot chocolate and some holiday sugar cookies. And if you’re looking for something a little more savory then make yourself some popcorn. The only thing left for you to do it is sit back with your friends and enjoy. 

Something else that goes hand in hand with movie night is baking with your friends. Even if you and your friends might not be the greatest bakers you can enjoy a night together baking and having fun. Some fun treats that you can bake different types of cookies, cakes, and breads. A fun idea is to split your friend group in half and have a baking competition.  

If you’re looking for something a little more formal, gather your friends and have a potluck. Put on some soothing music in the background, sit down and enjoy a meal together. After you’re done eating, get together and play after dinner games, such as charades or a board game.

Now that temperatures are dropping, hanging outside might not sound like the funnest thing in the world but, you’d be surprised by how fun it can really be. Something that you don’t really see in Las Vegas is snow or ice. Did you know that you can ice skate in Las Vegas? During the months of November and December The Cosmopolitan turns their swimming pool into an ice rink. On occasion, they will let snow fall over the ice rink to make it feel like winter wonderland.

If you have some spare time after ice skating you might want to consider going to Urth Caffé located at the Wynn Plaza Shops. If you prefer to go somewhere that isn’t down by the strip, you might consider going to PublicUs. This cafe not only offers warm beverages but it also offers food from local and organic produce including homemade pastries. Another cafe that would be fun to got to is Gäbi Coffee & Bakery. These cafes are just a few popular cafes around town. But there are cafes all over Las Vegas that you can check out with your friends. 

These are just a few of the many activities that you can do with your friends. But remember the most important thing, hang out with the people you care and love the most. Make the best memories and take pictures. Enjoy these small moments together while they last.
