Whether you welcome winter or dread it, there’s no denying that it’s here. The good news is that there are plenty of wonderful ways to enjoy a winter visit to Bryan!


Bryan’s fantastic park system offers plenty of paved walking trails where you can take in winter’s beauty with ease. If you’re looking for something a bit more active, lace up your skates for a spin around the MacDonald Ruff Ice Rink or for a game of hockey (weather permitting). Cross country skis are also available to rent for a small fee.

In rural Bryan, you’ll find walking trails at George Bible Park, Opdycke Park, Parkersburg Wildlife Area and the Williams County Watershed. Bundle up and enjoy a snowy stroll!


When you’re ready to warm up after a fun day outside (or if you just want to stay cozy all day), check out these indoor activities.

Catch a flick and snack on popcorn at the Bryan Theatre. This downtown venue has classic charm with modern amenities, including some heated seats.

Keep your golf game in shape at The Bays GC. The Bays features a variety of indoor sports simulators, including golf, soccer, skee ball and more.

Roll your way to fun at Bryan Lanes. Check out their open bowling times or gather a group to enjoy an evening of cosmic bowling.

Stop by the winter farmers market at Parlor 1861. Held the first Saturday of the month, this indoor market welcomes food and craft vendors of all kinds.

Of course, no visit to Bryan is complete without a stop at Spangler Candy World. Kids and adults alike will be entertained with the interactive history exhibits, big screen factory tour and STEM-inspired games. You can stock up on your favorite candy and candy-inspired merchandise, too!
