Kids can stop praying for more snow days. Midwinter recess kicks off for New York City public schools on Friday, February 16, aka Lunar New Year and continues through Sunday, February 25, giving kids 10 days of uninterrupted holiday playtime. To help you make the most of the February vacation, we've rounded up 35 things to do with kids across all five boroughs.
Lucky for us, NYC museums, ice rinks, parks, and other fun zones host a slew of special activities and promotions during the school break. Some of our picks take place on specific dates, others run the entire time, and all are great ways to celebrate the freezin' season.
The extra days off also make it a great time to book a couple of nights away as a family with these more budget-minded getaways, or to pile onto the train or into the car for a day trip to a top kid spot.
Remember you can always search our Event Calendar for more February break week happenings. (Tip: Search for a specific day or with the word "break.")
