With the holiday season wrapping up, the arrival of January closes the door on 2020. While the promise of a COVID-19 vaccine looms on the horizon, we're all facing a challenging winter. We’ve been hard at work searching for resources to keep spirits high for Westchester and Hudson Valley families, including our list of 30 things to do this winter with kids.
Zeroing in on January, we’ve rounded up a slew of events and anytime activities that put safety first—some of which are even FREE. Begin the month with one of many first day hikes or attend an ongoing holiday extravaganza before they close shop for the season. Other options include embracing these international New Year’s celebrations, signing up for a wintry walk, nature program, or makers workshop. Be sure to bookmark this list to help you plan fun anytime in January.
Beyond this, our Event Calendar is frequently updated to include both in-person and virtual events. Our Winter Fun Guide has plenty of seasonal picks, from snow tubing and sledding hills to ski slopes welcoming families now. So, grab your planner and read on for ways to keep kids active, enriched, and engaged this month and beyond.
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. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
