The winter blues settle in when people get sick of staying indoors, watching the same reruns, and knitting tiny mittens for their house centipedes. Get back to nature and out of that teeming lair of insects with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a farm outing for two at Riverbend Acres in Bright (a $50 value). The outing includes:
- One-hour sleigh ride
- Barn tour<p>
A working 100-acre farm specializing in horse-drawn conveyance, Riverbend Acres offers winter family enjoyment via a host of alfresco activities. Two belgian horses effortlessly escort a sleigh full of riders through tranquil woods and along the Nith River during the one-hour tour, stopping to facilitate picture-taking and speeding up to avoid the reach of hitchhiking Old MacDonalds. Should snow be scarce, Riverbend Acres substitutes the sleigh with an equally mobile wagon. A tour of the barn grants tandem explorers the chance to witness the inner workings of a bustling farm bolstered by gossip sessions with resident livestock.
