Ever find yourself asking what there is to do in New Berlin? Here’s the answer.

If you’re a teenager living in New Berlin, you may be guilty of catching yourself saying, “there is nothing to do here.”  This, though, is very untrue.  Even in winter, there are activities to do in New Berlin and the Waukesha County area despite the pessimistic view many have on this city.  Starting out the New Year, here is a list of winter activities to participate in that are close to home:

1.     Go Ice-Skating

With the Pettit National Ice Center, Eble Park Ice Arena, Red Arrow Park, and Malone Park, possibilities are endless when it comes to places to have fun and skate.  The Pettit and Eble are indoor skating arenas open year-round.  The Pettit is located in Milwaukee and Eble is located in Brookfield.  Red Arrow Park is an outdoor ice rink t hat is open only in December and January.  It is located in Milwaukee and is free if you bring your own skates! Malone Park is in New Berlin, but unfortunately they do not have skates to rent.

2.     Enjoy a New Years Eve party

With 2014 right around the corner, you may be wondering just what to do on New Years Eve. Milwaukee has many New Years events to attend.  A good way to spend New Years Eve with your family for a reasonable price is to attend the family New Years Eve party at the Domes or Milwaukee’s New Year’s Toast Around the World.  The New Years party at the domes is for kids and adults of all ages and runs from 6 PM to 9 PM.  The Toast Around the World New Years party is from 11:30 AM to 3 PM.  Complimentary international dishes are served every hour in respect to countries around the world entering the New Year.

3.     Stay Active

Winter may bring the urge to stay indoors, sitting on the couch, drinking a lot of cocoa.  If you’re feeling sluggish and out of shape during the winter like many others do, attend the free Good Form Walking/Running Clinic on January 9th to get your body moving and active.  Another healthy way to spend your winter is by going to the Milwaukee Art Museum on January 18th for yoga from 8:15 AM to 9:30 AM.

There are many Milwaukee sports teams that have home games throughout the winter, such as the Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Admirals, and the Milwaukee Wave.  The Harlem Globetrotters are also coming to Milwaukee on December 31st at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.  These games come at reasonable prices and are for sports lovers of all ages.
