Yes! The little ones can try out some mini snowmobiles at the ski area, while the whole family can enjoy ice skating, swimming, and arcade games in the family game area. Consider visiting during one of the many events the Homestead hosts. MLK Jr. Weekend, from January 12-15, and Presidents Weekend, from February 16-19, has activities for the whole family to enjoy.
