Newport Ri is a great idea, but it's a decent drive. If you do go I would recommend also renting scooters and driving along the cliffs.

Every Sunday I find myself searching for the same thing. Need somewhere fun to go with kids ages 4-7 (all girls). We donít mind traveling up to 2 hours per way. Not looking for the same old thing everyone goes to. Coco keys, white post farms, Bronx zoo... need some good ideas. We went to Old Westbury Gardens the other day and it was so amazing. Everyone enjoyed it... just need some good ideas before I get stuck going to Chuck E. Cheeseís again
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

Check out Boscobel House and Gardens (although might be nicer in spring)

Museum of Natural History.  admission by donation. so you can do just a few rooms and come back another day to do a few more.  Worth 2 visits.


Metropolitan Museum of Art. admission by donation. There's armor and furniture and some nice art. Worth one visit.


Jewish children museum (listed above) good for a visit.
Brooklyn Children's Museum. has nice activities.  Possibly worth a membership.-Which entitles you to entrance in various science museums.


Hall of Science in Queens.  I haven't been there recently. It needs some parental interaction, but can be enjoyable.  They used to close 2 pm -even on Sunday.


Liberty Science Center.  I haven't been there since their big redo (5 or so years ago), so I don't know what's there now.


Other children's museums.


Get a new activity and /or game and have each kid invite a friend for a grand day of do and play.


Not in the winter:


Historic Hudson Valley.  Especially the 'Sheep to Shawl' in Philipsburg Manor in the spring. Not cheap.


Bike riding. Either get a bike rack and bring your bikes or rent.  Prosect Park. Sheepshead Bay. etc


Mini golf. Flushing Meadows Mini golf.  check for coupons before you go.


Richmond Restoration, Staten Island
