For many of us, the winter months are in full force and getting outdoors and avoiding cabin fever is paramount to staying both sane and healthy during the dark, cold winter days and nights. Sometimes, though, finding events near you that satisfy both your need to get out of the house and your desire for quality entertainment can be a little tough.
If you’ve got cabin fever, check out these ways to find events near you:

Facebook has rapidly expanded its local search area to include a marketplace for selling items and streamlining event search for local activities. Many retailers, organizations, and Facebook pages post their events to the platform and make them easy to find, RSVP for, and even purchase passes or tickets.

Additionally, you can download Facebook’s Local app where you can find local events through Facebook’s search engine and find events near your current location. This is a great option for people who spend a significant amount of time traveling.
