This holiday season, you’re likely spending a lot more time at home and looking for new activities to do with your family. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the holidays from home with your family. Start some new traditions!


Watch a Holiday Favorite with the Family

@megnroze6688_easystreetGrab a blanket and relax on the couch with a show the whole family will enjoy. This year, Easy Street Productions is bringing their Christmas Spectacular to television! In case you missed the premiere, encore broadcasts of the Miracle on Easy Street TV Christmas Special will air Saturday, December 19 at 8pm on WBCB, and Christmas Day, at 12pm on WFMJ & at 1pm on WBCB. Sing and dance along to all your holiday favorites with brand new performances, as well as a look back on some of their past performances.

You can also head on over to the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s YouTube Channel to explore Youngstown’s local history and stories with their monthly lunchtime program.


Try a Virtually Guided Project with the Kids

@martinomotorsports_ohwowKeeping the kids occupied extends way beyond the virtual (or in-person) classroom. Keep their minds active and interested with OH WOW!’s live videos, featuring experiments made by Mr. Ralf. Each month, you can also order a STEM SAK Bundle that contains four new projects, complete with all the materials and instructions. Or, kids can enjoy the Mahoning Valley Historical Society’s Hands on History at-home activities. Each Sunday through January 3, they will feature favorite children’s books and post example images and step-by-step instructions of crafts that can be done with simple household items. The Youngstown Public Library is also offering virtual programs for kids, with topics covering everything from cooking and stories to novel discussion and 3D design. You can view the library’s Virtual Programming Events Calendar here.


Experiment in the Kitchen

@the_advantage_team_onehotcookieWhether it’s trying something new in the kitchen, decorating cookies or just sending a gift to a loved one, a little time in the kitchen can illustrate just how much you care. Not a great baker? No problem. Order a holiday cookie decorating kit from One Hot Cookie, complete with cut-out cookies, icing and decorations – all you need is a little creativity to put it all together! Their Gingerbread House Kit includes a fully constructed house which leaves you to do the fun part – decorating!

Or, get hip with the newest food craze: hot chocolate bombs! N2 by DaVill has a ton of flavors to try on a cold night inside. Just pour hot milk over the chocolate bomb and enjoy a unique cup of hot chocolate while you’re getting cozy on the couch. Visit our Sweet Treats page for an extensive list of bakeries where you can order cookies, pies or other treats.


Drive-Thru Holiday Light Displays

Enjoy a holiday drive-thru light display at Boardman Park and marvel at the beautiful lights from the safety of your car. It’s free and is open from 5pm-10pm each night through January 10. Or, check out these local holiday light displays. On your way, pick up some Handel’s ice cream for the family. Try their holiday flavors such as White Christmas, Peppermint Bark, and Peppermint Stick.


As we keep adapting to uncertain and changing times, make sure you’re doing everything you can for yourself and your family to find different activities you can do together, while staying safe at home. For more ways to love this holiday season in Youngstown & Mahoning County, visit our website.

Take a winter hike! With miles and miles of trails to discover, you won’t be hard-pressed to find a path in Mahoning County that’s right for you. Below are a few of our favorites. Grab some great photos of beautiful winter landscapes while you’re out! Share them with us using #VisitYoungstown.


West Gorge Trail | Mill Creek MetroParks

@francine_elizabethWhile Mill Creek MetroParks has over 45 miles of trails to explore, arguably one of the best trails to hike in the winter is West Gorge Trail. The trail starts near the Suspension Bridge, (AKA the Cinderella Bridge), a beautiful and popular photo opportunity surrounded by snow-covered trees. West Gorge then travels towards Lanterman’s Mill, another Mill Creek landmark, decorated with festive wreaths for the holidays!

East Golf Hike & Bike Trail | Mill Creek MetroParks@lindsnicole

Also located in Mill Creek MetroParks, the 1.5-mile East Golf Hike & Bike Trail runs from Route 224 to Shields Road. Its asphalt surface makes the trail easy to navigate for walkers, runners, and bikers in the winter. Parking lots are conveniently located at each end of the trail.
Tap here to view all Mill Creek trails.

Side note: Both the North Course and South Course at nearby Mill Creek Golf Course are now open for walking, hiking and biking activities. Please stay on the cart paths when enjoying these activities.


Berlin Lake Trail@wildernesswithchris

Parking is available off US 224, 1.5 miles east of Deerfield Circle, as well as at the south trail entrance off Kirkbride Road.
Tap here for more about the Berlin Lake area.


Lake Milton Trail@realsimonmarcel

If there’s one thing we love most about Lake Milton, it’s the sunsets. Arrive early to hike the Lake Milton Trail, a family-friendly out-and-back path that winds through trees and terrain. Afterwards, hang around the lake to catch beautiful sunset views over the water.


Shelter House Trail | Poland Municipal Forest

With 265 acres of natural beauty, Poland Municipal Forest has a variety of fun trails to choose from. This winter, hike the Shelter House Trail for a chance to walk across the newly rebuilt Mauthe Bridge.




This winter, get out and explore the wintry trails in Youngstown! While on your hike, make sure to abide by the park and state safety guidelines. If you’re not feeling well, stay home and research the trails until you’re feeling better!

With just one step into the market, you’ll be sure to find bins and bins of apples grown and harvested right on the farm. After you choose a bag or two of your favorites (view a full list of apple varieties here), make sure to also pick up homemade White House apple cider. Sweet and refreshing, White House’s cider comes available in single-serve bottles as well as half-gallon and gallon containers.


  1. Warm Baked Goods

While White House donuts might get most of the attention, the market’s other seasonal baked goods are just as remarkable. Here are a few fall treats prepared daily in the White House bakery:

  • Apple Fritter Bread: farm-grown apples and cinnamon baked into crisp bread
  • Apple Crisp: farm-grown apples baked with a cinnamon-oatmeal mix
  • Apple Crisp Bars: apple crisp filling on a shortbread cookie crust
  • Apple Dumplings: single-serve dessert topped with warm cinnamon sauce
  • Pumpkin Logs: spiced pumpkin bread rolled with a sweet cream cheese filling


  1. Cozé Coffee

Situated on White House Fruit Farm’s property, Cozé Coffee Bar serves up warm, flavorful coffees and teas throughout the fall and winter. Sip on seasonal drinks, like their pumpkin spice latte, while you’re on the farm or purchase a bag of beans to enjoy back at home.


  1. @championfoodreviewBaker’s Golden Flavored Milks

Flavored milks produced by Baker’s Golden Dairy LLC are a hidden gem sold by White House Fruit Farm. Peruse the coolers at White House and you’ll find these single-serve bottles featuring unique flavors like butter pecan, cookies & cream and cherry cheesecake. The milk itself is produced from the only on-farm bottling plant in nearby Columbiana County and is not homogenized, making it naturally healthier for your body than regular milk. Pro tip: Pair a bottle of this milk with a White House donut or two for the perfect afternoon sweet snack.


@laurenjanevaskeThis fall, make sure to plan at least one trip to White House Fruit Farm! Their Gift Barn and Pumpkin Pavilion will be open Monday-Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm through October 31.

The best opportunity for social distancing is during the week and early morning or late afternoon on the weekends.
