’Tis the season for winter sports, but if skiing or snowshoeing isn’t your thing, you don’t have to spend the next few months pent up indoors.

From European-styled thermal baths to outdoor concerts to culinary celebrations, here are some of the best ways to help you get out and forget about the chill this winter.
