Visit Carlisle Reservation, the biggest of Lorrain County’s metro parks, for a look at the holidays, mixed with the great outdoors. The walking trails are decorated by local business. Once you’ve walked as far as your feet will carry you, hop aboard the train for a ride down a different decorated path. Warm up inside the visitor’s center with free snacks and hot beverages. Get in for free when each family member presents a non-perishable food item. Call ahead or check their website before you go. Special events are scheduled throughout the season, including holiday crafts, gift wrapping and game nights.
