Things to Do on Long Island this Weekend with Kids 11/10-11/11

As we do our best to begin recovering from the strength of Sandy that left many of us without power, we look to help our less fortunate neighbors both near and far. We know that these last two weeks have been very stressful so we’ve rounded up things to do on Long Island this weekend with kids so that you can relax, unwind and have a little fun, family style. (Although we confirmed all venues are up and running, due to the effects of Sandy and the recent nor’easter, we advise calling any venue before venturing out.
