Normally around now we would be sharing lots of things to do in New York City during February break. But due to school days missed during Hurricane Sandy, the usual week-long midwinter recess is now just four days, so there's not as much going on as in years past.
While we will certainly be updating our NYC Presidents' Day weekend events post next week, we think those four days will be the perfect time to take a day trip. So we've rounded up six really cool, kid-friendly destinations that are all less than two hours away from NYC. No need to book a hotel! Whether you opt to jump around, get all wet or commune with nature, here are six great getaways for New York City families during February break.
