From tranquil ocean shores to pristine snow-topped mountains, New England in winter is a magical place. Garrett Hofer of East Lyme, CT, is one of its greatest admirers. Since relocating from Colorado, Garrett Hofer has been an avid explorer of all New England has to offer at every time of year. Here, the family man discusses four of his favorite ways to spend the season.

1. Sledding
From Vermont to Connecticut, New England’s mountainous landscape is peppered with sled-worthy slopes. Many residents and visitors to New England enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and sledding as great, active ways to spend time outdoors in winter. Garrett Hofer recommends taking kids to a local park or even heading to a ski resort for a day on the slopes followed by a cup of cocoa and a good book by the lodge fireside.

2. Sports
Garrett Hofer, an avid sports fan, loves watching football with friends and family. Although he admires the pros, his favorite teams are those his kids are playing on. His children play indoor soccer and basketball in the winter, a great way for them to stay active. It’s also excellent entertainment for Garrett Hofer and his wife, who enjoy cheering the kids on from the stands.

3. Volunteering
What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than by giving back to your community? Garrett Hofer is consistently involved in charity and volunteer efforts year-round. But the winter, he says, is a great time to devote a bit of extra time to volunteer efforts, in part because harsh weather can present additional challenges for those less fortunate. During the holiday season and after, the community-oriented businessman suggests giving to organizations in someone’s name as a great gift for friends, colleagues, and family members. He also volunteers his time with organizations like the American Corporate Partners Veterans Mentor program and encourages others to do the same.

4. Traveling
There’s no shame in being a snowbird! Garrett Hofer, like many northerners, enjoys escaping to warmer climates when possible. One of his favorite spots to take the family is Florida, specifically the Florida Keys and Jupiter, Florida. Along with a plethora of fishing spots, these locales also present plenty of opportunities for fun for the whole family, from relaxing at a beachside resort to dining at one of the state’s fine seafood eateries.
