A Dozen Miniature Golf Courses for NYC Kids

For many families, mini golf is a quintessential spring and summer activity that they look forward to every year. My son loves it, so we've tried just about every putt-putt course in the tristate area.

While there are plenty of courses on Long Island and in New Jersey, you don't need to head out of town for putt-putt golf. There are currently a dozen places to play mini golf right here in New York City. And as sports go, it's typically fairly inexpensive—often as little as $5 a round for kids. Another bonus is that it's one of those rare activities that parents and kids can play together. You can even host a birthday party at most of these spots.

Read on to find out where to play mini golf with the kids in the city, and I'll see you on the green!

City dwellers seem to go crazy for ice skating season, but once the ice thaws and spring is upon us where's a skater to go? It's time to introduce the kids to the old-school art of roller skating at one of these seven rinks within city limits and just beyond.

In addition to retro skating fun, many of these spots offer extras, including arcade games, bounce houses, and party packages.

Ninjago City Play Area Debuts at Legoland Westchester

Ninjas and Legos in Yonkers? Yep! The Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester recently added a new attraction: Ninjago City Adventure in preparation for the next epic bricktacular film that's slated for this fall, The LEGO Ninjago Movie.

Your little ones might already be familiar with the Ninjago animated TV series, or its Lego characters—Lloyd, Kai, Jay, Cole, Nya, and Zane—but even if they aren't, there are loads of opportunities to build and play, from a climbing wall to the various building tables at this new addition to our local Legoland.

Located in the Ridge Hill shopping center in Yonkers, I visited Ninjago City Adventure on opening day with my 6-year-old Lego expert. Read on for our review, and if you're looking for more fun in the area, sign up for our newsletters and follow us on Facebook!
