It is always a challenge in the dead of winter to find things to do for you and the family. February may be the most challenging month because of the weather and the limited "indoor" activities out there.

So I sat down with pen and paper, yes I was writing by hand and came up with ten "indoor" day trips that you can do either solo, with friends, or the entire family. My "ten" are all located right here in Ocean County, at various points throughout Ocean County.

5. Ocean County Mall

When our kids were young, Avril and I would take the kids on a winter day at the mall. Indoors, warm and dry we would spend hours and yes a few dollars. We would walk, shop, and get some lunch. The kids always had their allowance and they did a great job budgeting their purchases. The Ocean County Mall in Toms River has a little something for everyone.
