25 Things To Do Over Holiday Break With New Jersey Kids
The lazy days of the upcoming holiday break may be the best time to take part in New Jersey's family-friendly, must-do holiday activities—especially if your kids have already moved on from their presents. From spectacular light displays to cold-weather fun, there's plenty to do during the days off from school.
Most New Jersey schools are closed from Thursday, December 24, 2020, through Sunday, January 3, 2021, allowing plenty of time to experience the holiday highlights you may have missed in the hectic run-up to Christmas. It's also the perfect time to plan a winter day trip, visit an enchanting Christmas town, catch a drive-in movie, bundle up for a visit to a theme park, and party into the new year.
If you plan to stick close to home over break, you might enjoy these virtual holiday events, some of which occur in late December and early January.
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 practicing social distancing.
