Things To Do on Long Island This Weekend and Beyond: Seal Walk, Paw Patrol Brunch, and More

It's time to embrace the freezin' season, and we've found plenty of ways to liven up your week, from anytime activities like embarking on one of these 15 winter walks to warming up with a bite to eat in an actual igloo.

Some of our favorite kid-friendly destinations are bringing the heat when it comes to family fun. Head to the Cradle of Aviation, where it's on like Donkey Kong, at least inside its recently reopened Arcade Age exhibit, so book your tickets and show off your old-school gaming skills. If you're looking for screen-free alternatives, why not hit the shores with the South Fork Natural History Museum and search for sunbathing seals at Cupsogue Beach?

If you're staying in, we've got plenty of fun, interactive classes to choose from on our Poppins@Home site, like Snapology's Minecraft series, which brings the game to life off the screen with the help of Legos. An online wrap party introduces easy recipes to teens and tweens. If your kids are already kitchen whizzes, maybe it's time to introduce them to our family-friendly recipe hub and give yourself a night off.

We've got more seasonal entertainment in our Winter Fun Guide, and our Event Calendar is, of course, updated daily with family-friendly fun.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining appropriate social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
