Learn To Luge
Or if you prefer to lay back and let gravity do the work, you can learn to luge at Muskegon Luge Adventure Sports Park. Their 850-foot track has plenty of curves and with practice, you could be sliding at speeds up to 30 miles per hour!
Learn to Luge classes are offered every weekend weather permits and are open to anyone over the age of 8. In the two-and-a-half-hour session, you'll receive training, equipment, sliding time, and even an Olympic style race complete with an awards ceremony. See more at msports.org.
John Ball Zoo Virtual Safari
If you'd rather stay home but still want to experience nature, join John Ball Zoo's Virtual Safaris. Their critter closeup series happens each Saturday from now until March.
Each safari features a different animal or group of animals. The 20 to 30-minute programs are only $5 for nonmembers and $3 for members.
This Saturday’s critter closeup features sea stars and limpets, and who knows, maybe even a hermit crab as they explore the deep blue sea. You can use the comments section of the videos to ask questions. It's a great way to support the zoo while having some fun. See more at jbzoo.org.
Head to the marketplace by Kalamazoo Candles between 10-7 for make-and-take candles. It's fun, fast, and family-friendly.

Choose from a variety of colors and fragrances and make a candle to take home for just $10 dollars. No reservations required but space is limited so it's first-come, first-serve.
