On Sunday night we usher in Hanukkah, when families and children will celebrate the miracle of the oil that lasted for eight days. In order to keep their children occupied during this long holiday, parents will search for fun and interesting activities around the country. If you’re tired of the standard children’s theater productions that are full of screaming toddlers, I recommend instead getting out into nature.

The weather is fabulous and you can enjoy hiking on trails that for much of the year are too hot to traverse. In addition, since we were blessed with a relatively wet November, all the hills and valleys are full of green grass and multicolored flowers. Many seasonal streams are already flowing with water from the recent rainfall and many tourist sites will be open during the Hanukkah holiday to welcome children and their families.
