"Through the holidays a lot of places will change their prices and say that holidays are excluded," Pennock said. "But, we decided to keep the $2 rate, just to encourage people to come here during that time."
Another way families and children had to enjoy some time away from home was at the Clinton 8 Theatre.
Even though the theater didn't offer any special promotions during the time off from school, Clinton 8 Theatre manager Trevor Kerns said he saw a major increase in movie-going during the last two weeks of December.
"I kind of prepare for it and kind of expect it, especially if relatives come and stay in Clinton," Kerns said. "I think both what's showing and just a chance to get out and go to the movies is why it gets so busy during that time. And I think since we have a wide range of movies right now that really helped us."
One indoor activity center didn't quite get the attention it was hoping for over the school break, but staff at the Clinton Public Library know that with spring not too far in the distance, their time will come.
"Our storytime numbers tend to drop during the holidays, probably due to the weather, as well as shopping for Christmas," children's librarian Tammy Bird said. "I know there was a lot of programs and events in the community and we understand that (people) are busy and they probably don't want to go out in the nasty weather. (Plus) it's more the spring breaks and the summer breaks that we see an increase in activity."
