While you’re celebrating the holidays at home with your own special traditions, you might also take time for a few family outings.

Browse our list of 11 Fun Things to Do in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill Over Winter Break for ideas that range from holiday performances and outdoor ice skating to the seeing the lights of the North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival. You could also check out the North Carolina Symphony’s new holiday concert, “A Candlelight Christmas,” at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23, at Meymandi Concert Hall of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh.

If your children are young, don’t forget to track Santa as he makes his Christmas Eve ride delivering presents across the world. You can find more ways to connect with Santa ahead of Chrismtas in our roundup, including taking a ride on the Santa Train at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham through Dec. 21 and making a Santa-themed breakfast.
