Warm, sunny days are not required to tee up with the kids at Monster Mini Golf, a spooky-themed, indoor mini-golf course and arcade with four locations in New Jersey. Featuring glow-in-the-dark decor and recently upgraded arcade games, Monster Mini Golf brings some Jersey-style boardwalk fun indoors.

Banish the January blues with some wintry family fun this weekend. We've got plenty of cold-weather options to help you embrace the frost, from a guided winter walk for preschoolers at Reeves-Reed Arboretum to maple sugaring demonstrations at the Great Swamp Education Center. If you prefer to stay warm, check out a family-friendly show like Doktor Kaboom's Live Wire! at the State Theater or the beloved classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe at SOPAC. You can also flex your creative muscles with a visit to Montclair Art Museum's Family Art Adventure or Frelinghuysen Arboretum's Family Photo Scavenger Hunt. And if that's not enough excitement, start your day by having breakfast with the Komodo Dragon at Turtle Back Zoo. For even more weekend happenings, check out our Calendar of Events and January GoList.
Exploring the Liberty Science Center with kids who want to crawl through the Touch Tunnel or scale the Climbing Challenge can work up quite an appetite. While we appreciate the convenience of museum-cafe pizza and chicken fingers after a day of hands-on exhibits, sometimes a more varied menu—away from the crowds—hits the spot.
Before we turn our attention to turkeys and tree lightings, we still have time this weekend to enjoy some fabulous fall activities. Gaze at the impressive autumn supermoon over Sandy Hook, or stomp through drifts of colorful leaves at Liberty State Park before they're gone. For indoor fun, rock out with a family concert in Asbury Park, or pick up a paintbrush at Montclair Art Museum's new hands-on studio. Travel back in time for an early 19th century Thanksgiving at Allaire State Park, or—if you are ready for Christmas fun—check out the first twinkling holiday lights at Turtle Back Zoo or Skylands Stadium.
