Winter Break-Our Favorite Things to do on Long Island

Winter Break is upon, the time when families have a chance to breathe and spend some time together without the pressures of a big holiday. Some will be traveling to warmer places, or to visit family but most of us will be simple relishing in fact that we have a little reprieve from the schedules that bind us.

We’ve rounded up a bunch of family fun activities to make the most of your Stay-cation.
