Looking for something lovely to do this Valentine's in Northwest Indiana? We've put together some ideas Valentine's date ideas plus fun things to do and events happening to enjoy with someone special whether it be a significant other, family or your BFF!


My grandfather loved birds. He used to bird watch and enjoyed learning about them. This love of birds was passed down to my mom. It was with knowing this that our old neighbors, years ago, first took my parents to see the Sandhill Cranes at the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area. We have since gone as a family about three times before going for the fourth time this past week.  Always the week before or of Thanksgiving. Each time we are amazed by what we see. 




Based off the classic 1954 film, this production of White Christmas at Theatre at the Center was a heartwarming and feel-good musical that will be sure to get you in the Christmas spirit. From war buddies, to singing partners, to famous names in show business, Bob and Phil go through it all together - including finding romance.


Black Friday and the more recent, Black Wednesday, have become popular days to kick-off the holiday; specifically, for shopping and special beer and wine releases. We compiled a list of releases plus brewery and winery events to enjoy between the usual shopping!


Though she has been offered a leaf blower, my dear friend chooses to rake her leaves the old-fashioned way --- because she wants to be sure to hear the melodious, rattling trumpet-like call of the sandhill cranes as they fly over! She doesn’t want to miss a single awe-inspiring moment of these majestic birds.


The snow is here! Will you be building a snowman, holiday shopping, or curling up on the couch to binge-watch Netflix? If you’re feeling adventurous take a look at these twelve, great spots to enjoy sledding, cross-country skiing and ice skating this season.

These are great activities you can do while on holiday break with the kids, too. Too cold outside? We have some indoor things to do at the end of this blog.


Thanksgiving week is full of activities between cooking, eating and starting your holiday shopping. But if you’re looking for more to do this week – either for grown up fun, entertaining visiting friends and family or just something to keep the kids busy during the long weekend – we got you covered!
