    Do you know of a great place to go for chol hamoed that isnt mobbed? For those guitar fans, Martin Guitar factroy has free tours and is not at all mobbed (at least when I went last year chol hamoed, wasnt a single jew there beside us actually)

    Where are you referring to New York? Los Angeles? Honolulu?
    How far are you willing to travel?
    What ages are you talking about?
    Day Trip? Overnight?
    Interests?

    During the afternoon (after Sachris, before Simchas Beis Shoeva time), most shuls are quite uncrowded and are an excellent place for learning Torah.

    If you post these places here then they will become mobbed with coffee room families

    The Queens Zoo was surprisingly not crowded when we went there one Chol Hamoed, but it was a few years ago so it might have changed.

    Also most beaches (avoid Coney Island) won’t be crowded, so if we get warm weather the kids can play in the sand. Dress warmly because it will be windy. Definitely not for swimming this time of year, but perhaps you can dip your toes. Find one with a playground to maximize the fun and enjoy the view. However, no swimming means no life-guards, so be on guard.

    There’s also some Nature center we went to in CT but I can’t find it now. Wasn’t very interesting but “cute” and we had the place to ourselves because it was a rainy day, although they did have some indoor stuff.

    Generally, the smaller and more boring the place is, the more likely that it won’t be crowded if it’s out of town (in this case 30 minutes or more from the 5 boroughs, Lakewood and Monsey).

    Mammele — I don’t understand how you can recommend beaches and the water when, even if there’s a smaller crowd, will inevitably contain pritzus.

    Slonimer, this might be one of those times when knowledge is superior to guessing. When the season for suntanning is over, there is NOBODY suntanning. I’ve gone many times on Chol Hamoed to Manhattan Beach, to dip toes, play in the sand, fly a kite among other stuff.

    Joseph – There could be a significant problem when picking apples on Chol HaMoed if they are not for use on YT.
