From New Year's Day to MLK weekend and Lunar New Year, January is a great time for indoor and outdoor activities.

Ring in the new year with new things to do: Disney on Ice presents Into the Magic at the UBS Arena at the beginning of the month, while Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live Glow roars into the Nassau Coliseum in the middle of the month. 

You can also catch some holiday light shows or theatrical productions before they pack it in for the season. Be sure to check out our Winter Activities Guide for Long Island Families for more great activities. 

We’re adding more events to our Family Activity Calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently.
