Thanksgiving Day Runs on Long Island

Turkey trots are a great way to spend the morning on Thanksgiving, whether you're a seasoned runner or just looking to run (or walk) for fun. And most of them are open to all ages or feature a "fun run" just for tots. If you are not trapped in the kitchen waiting for the bird to cook--or if you are but want everyone else out from under foot--get the family out to work off those calories in advance to make room for the feast to come. And be sure to check out our Long Island Fun Guide for lots of other activities in the area, as well as our Long Island Events Calendar.

Not-So-Scary Halloween Haunts on Long Island for Kids

Looking to get spooked this Halloween? Long Island is home to many Haunted Houses up to the task, ranging from child-friendly to down-right creepy. We've rounded up a list of some places offering fairly child-friendly haunted houses for consideration. Keep in mind that even the tamest of these can sometimes be too much for an imaginative child, so always come prepared with a backup plan (or adult) if one child needs to leave quickly.
