When the weather is gray and chilly, it's easier to stay inside and hide. But for children that can be among the most boring things to do.

All across Long Island, there are play spaces and indoor playgrounds to keep your kids happily occupied. But how about some low-key kids spots hiding in plain sight? And better yet, how about FREE destinations? From malls to bookstores and libraries, there is plenty of FREE fun to be had for Long Island kids.

Enjoy these unique play destinations, but remember at most venues a parent/adult must be present to supervise children.

45 Fun Things to Do with Kids in Long Island City, Queens

About 15 years ago, a friend told me that Long Island City and Hunter’s Point were going to be the places to be.  At the time, the area seemed too industrial to be the next hot spot, but the subsequent years have proved my friend right.

Who would have thought that former warehouses would be renovated to become restaurants and boutiques and that LIC would be full of young families, eager to enjoy the amazing waterfront parks and amenities? Unfortunately, not me.

When you visit LIC now, you can see construction going up everywhere. So much has changed in just the last few years that we wanted to update our last list of fun things to do. Go forth and explore!

Even its 200-acre location has an eclectic story; a former strip mining site turned Renaissance theme park complete with authentic art, larger-than-life statues and structures, and a village of shops, restaurants, and stages that look like they've been plucked from another era.

What Ages Get in Free at Philly Museums, Zoos, Gardens, Amusement Parks

Let's be honest, having kids can be expensive. Entertaining kids can be even more expensive. Museums, zoos, and amusement parks can be fun and even educational, but not always economical. Sometimes the best time to go is when the littlest ones can still get in with free admission. Maybe you can even check a few things off of your bucket list. To make it easy, we've created this list of which places offer free admission for what ages. We've even included some more obscure museums so you can broaden your horizons and try some place new! So hurry up and plan that outing while the kids are still little.
