How excited are you to have a Holiday-free weekend ahead? That is, unless you plan to spend the weekend stripping your home of Holiday decor. Maybe you're like me, and you figure you waited a whole year to put them up, let's leave them up "one more weekend." Whatever the case might be, take some time this weekend with your family checking out one of the following great events we've rounded up for you: 

Seal Watching in New York

It is way more exciting to see animals in the wild than it is to see them at the zoo. And even here in New York City we are able to glimpse some animals in their natural habitat– and I don’t mean rats, squirrels or pigeons, either. Each fall hundreds of harbor seals start their annual journey from Maine for a warmer climate, traveling south until they reach the temperate waters surrounding Long Island.

What to do with Kids on New Year's Eve on Long Island

The whole idea of New Year's Eve isn't traditionally a family Holiday. In fact, most kids fall asleep long before the clock strikes 12. Some parents look forward to a grown up night out without the kids. But, if you're like me, the idea of ringing in the New Year together as a family has become a tradition in it's own; well, either that, or you can't find a sitter. Whatever the reason, we've rounded up some great events  happening on Long Island this New Years Eve and New Years Day in case banging the pots and pans  at midnight and watching football all day isn't enough.
