Posted on: December 18, 2017

If you’ve been snow-shoeing the Iron Horse Trail all day or speeding down the hill at Kinosoo Ridge, you’ll want something a little more cerebral to do in the evening. The Lakeland has plenty of great arts and culture venues that allow you to spend a night or a day basking in culture, high or low.
