Brite Winter Festival, Ohio City, OH: After the holidays there is a lull before spring - put an end to those winter blues by attending the Brite Winter Festival. It is an outdoor and indoor music festival with great music, bonfires, hot drinks, and a fun festive vibe. Come support your favorite local and regional bands while warming up toward the end of February.
The Chalet, Strongsville, OH: Located in the heart of the Mill Stream Run Recreation Area, The Chalet is a fun winter destination in the Cleveland Metroparks. If you enjoy cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or winter hiking you'll love The Chalet. However, one of its most interesting features is the 700-foot toboggan run that you can zip down in an old-fashioned wooden toboggan at speeds up to 50 MPH!
