what about something local in tristate area for the entire family for the entire day? it’s pretty hard especially when kids range 19-3- any ideas?
please be more specific with the area that you are referring to… tristate means many different things to many different people in many different places :o)

Local NYC Activities for Erev Shabbos and Erev Yom Tov (second days)
-The NYC Transit Museum in downtown Brooklyn. Among the exhibits are old subway cars, buses, photos, films and historic artifacts, all located in an unused subway station.
-Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from there. The view of Brooklyn, Manhattan and the river is great and the breeze is nice.
-On the Manhattan side, tour the South Street Seaport
-The Police Museum is also nearby

I went on chol hamoed sukkos to central park and we rented bikes near there, its great. Central park is a beautiful park, it takes between 2 and 3 hours to bike through the whole park. You can sit down on benches to eat and eat I had a wonderful time there, so I’m going again on chol hamoed pesach.March 26, 2010 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #938352yoyoMember

New York International Auto Show
[ April 2 – 11 ] The NY International Auto Show will be back at the Jacob Javits Center from April 2-11, 2010 and will have some of the hottest cars and trucks ever seen all under one roof. That means more sneak peeks, more brand new ’10 & ’11 production models and more concept vehicles than ever before.

I am sorry to be negative, but the whole concept is of poor provenance. I was fortunate in recent years in that my older children had their own plans, and also did not want to be shlepped by us, that I can generally spend a chol hamoed morning in the bais medrash, and the bais medrash is not quite empty. I heard the gaon and tzaddik Rav Brevda ztzk’l on his frequent chol hamoed adresses, and he was wont to speak against the current scene. He said it would be better for some to go to work, and that had he had the power he would abolish “the chol hamoed trip”. The passionate way he said this still rings in my ears.March 18, 2013 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #938363
Would appreciate if you can share any Chol Hamoed locations in central/north New Jersey, or White Plains area. Preferably indoors, as cold weather is expected. Much appreciated.March 18, 2013 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #938364
Actually, Monsey area is good as well. Thanks.March 18, 2013 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #938365zahavasdadParticipant

We’re going out to Queens for a day to check out Flushing Meadows park, do some walking, relaxing, reading, etc. And we want to get KFP ice cream from berrylicious in Queens and Chinese from Cho-sen.
And I will be heading into the city some days for learning, shiurim, etc. and will be eating at a few places there.
Hhere’s a question- why are all the restaurants open for Pesah in the city and none in Bbrooklyn?March 19, 2013 1:58 am at 1:58 am #938368
Hmmm. Alright, thanks! Will definitely look into them…:)March 19, 2013 4:22 am at 4:22 am #938369MorahRachMember
White plains doesn’t have much to do but there is a nice boing alley I can give you the address if you would like. Tuttle back zoo in Jersey near or in Livingston is great.
I can’t imagine spending a freezing cold day in Flushing meadow park, there are no great sights to see, just open land and a probably frozen lake!
