    With the air cold and several feet of snow on the ground, Center Stage has some suggestions for great events to warm up around New England.

    Believe it or not, there are other colors in Boston aside from white, and you can see them at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum. Head to their interior courtyard oasis to remember the sensation of warmth, and smell the blooming flowers and green landscape.

    Right now, the garden is covered in tropical flowers and exotic orchids!

    The museum is open daily except Tuesdays. Admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and $5 for students.

    Another place to escape winters chill is the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston. Take a stroll through their tropical forest, which is always kept at a balmy 74 degrees.

    You can see waterfalls, giant elephant leaves and plenty of animals, like the Western Lowlands gorillas. And to celebrate school vacation week, admission is just $5!

    Lastly, you can warm up in a different way With Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre's "Works of Love." See three powerful ballets that explore the intensity and emotion of human relationships.

    This is your last weekend to see it. If you want to head to 400 harvard street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, tickets are $42.
