Activities To Get You Out of the House This Weekend on Long Island

This week brings spring break and an action-packed schedule of fun. Grab the kids and head to the Garvies Point Museum & Preserve to enjoy family-friendly programs, including crafts, hikes, films, and more. 

We've got plenty of Easter egg hunts, and families can check out FREE drive-thru events in Cold Spring Harbor and Belmont Lake State Park.

If that's not enough, our Poppins@Home site invites kids to take virtual dance classes to perfect their hip-hop and ballet techniques.

You'll find more seasonal happenings in our roundup of 25 fun things to do this spring, plus our Event Calendar gets constant updates as we learn of family-friendly happenings.

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.
