With an area of just about seven square miles, Levittown has a lot to offer. Hidden away in its winding roads are many little gems. There are village greens with small strips of stores, playgrounds, and town pools to be enjoyed during the summer months by residents. Tucked away at the end of Silver Lane, you will even find Levittown Lanes Bowling Alley.
Out in plain sight there is a lot to do too. LI Laser Bounce offers open play for Laser Tag, an arcade, a bounce arena, and a “ballocity arena” where kids will find thousands of soft foam balls to dump, shoot, throw, and catch. Next door there is a Denny’s restaurant to grab a bite to eat afterwards. If a more subdued day is desired then AMC Movie Theatres is a good choice.
On Hempstead Turnpike there are plenty of big name places to eat like Millers Ale House, TGI Fridays, and Five Guys Burgers. Levittown also offers many smaller pizzerias and delis to get delicious food from like Fred’s Deli on Center Lane and Segesta Pizzeria on Wantagh Avenue. During the summer months after eating at Segesta, families can grab an Italian ice at Ralph’s a few steps away.
For parents or caregivers looking for activities to do with the little ones, The Little Gym offers classes for children from 4 months to 12 years old, and Music Together is a music and movement class for children from birth to 4 years old. For school aged child there are plenty of activities to do as well. There are numerous dance schools such as Nancy’s Dance Factory, 5678 Dance, and Steppin n’ Style Dance. There is also Levittown Red Devils football and cheerleading, both of which start at age 4. Levittown Athletic Club is a fast pitch softball team for girls in Kindergarten through 12th grade, and Levittown Central Baseball begins teaching children the fundamentals of baseball at age 3.
