FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27 VISIT THE ZOO DAY Watch them play! Winter is the perfect time to head to the zoo, says Cynthia Mead, executive vice president of external affairs for Zoo New England in Boston. “Many of the animals are more active in cooler temperatures and there are fewer crowds,” she notes.

Plus, you’ll often find that admission is cheaper (sometimes half the cost) in colder months. And if you get chilly, head inside to check out the tropical exhibits!
