What are your Top 5 activities?

Top 5 – #5

Tallman Park

A great hiking trail that overlooks the Hudson from the lookout but also has a paved walkway parallel to the water. While this may require a bit of bundling up, the calm scenery allows for a nice hike away from it all.

Top 5 – #4

Broadway

During the off-season is the perfect time to see shows! Many shows will be running discounts, and even if that doesn’t work stop by TKTS for great seats. (Go to the Lincoln Center or South Street Seaport location, never Times Square.)

Top 5 – #3

Mountain Creek Skiing

An incredibly enjoyable skiing location not too far from the main Jersey hub. They offer skiing at many different levels as well as some delightful snow tubing, for those who wish for a more relaxing experience.

Top 5 – #2

Thunder Mountain Trap and Skeet

This activity in Ringwood, New Jersey is fun for those who wanted to take a shot at hunting but never cared for the more gruesome side of the sport. With a wonderful staff that will teach you the basics, this is a great activity for some good ole destructive fun.

Hawaii

C’mon… it’s Hawaii.

Vanderbilt Mansion tour (Long Island)

The Vanderbilt Mansion is a super-interesting place to go, especially during the winter when there is beautiful snow and a waterscape. On the tour, you will see many antique objects, including paintings, real diamond jewelry, real mink and shrunken heads (real!) And even a room full of taxidermied sea creatures.

Top 5 – #4

Rockefeller Center

When the weather outside is frightful, but the people and lights are quite delightful! Whether you want to go shopping or ice skating, Rockefeller center is the perfect date-night activity. Perhaps one of my most famous activities there is ice skating, where there is a gorgeous Xmas tree every year. You can bring your own ice skates or you can rent them there.

Top 5 – #3

Cabela’s (I went to the one in Pennsylvania)

Cabela’s is a great pit stop if you are nearby. This is not just a hunting gear or camping equipment store—it also has tunnels that are surrounded by fish tanks where you can walk around and see exotic fish, and they also have taxidermied animals everywhere. From bears to moose, monkeys, birds to giraffes, elephants, hippopotami and more. You will leave Cabela’s wanting to stay there longer, guaranteed.

Top 5 – #2

Corning Glass Factory (Corning, New York)

If you like watching cool glass objects being made, then the Corning Glass factory is perfect for you. On the tour, you will watch a live demonstration of glass being blown, colored and turned into a gorgeous piece of glassware. The gift shop is pretty neat as well.

Top 5 – #1

Ford’s Theatre, Washington, D.C.

This is the theater where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, and it is the perfect place to tour during the winter. The theater is well heated and the tour is self-guided. There are many interesting artifacts such as the gun that John Wilkes Booth used to shoot Lincoln on April 14, 1865, Mary Lincoln’s fancy jewelry and fans, and more. If you choose to go to Ford’s Theatre, I also suggest taking a tour of the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument.

Going to the movies

I like the way the seats recline back at Ridgefield Park movie theater. You can go wearing slippers and a comfy sweatshirt and your blanket. I am excited to see “Avatar 2.”

Top 5 – #4

Bowling

I like Bowler City in Hackensack because you can always get a lane. My kids used to love the arcade games. There is also a good party room there.

Top 5 – #3

Michaels Craft Store

You can go to Michaels and frame pictures, pick up some good crafts or pick up some scrapbooking materials. They have creative arts and crafts activities for kids, and the activities are also fun for adults. I find it very relaxing.

Top 5 – #2

Fountain Spa

The Fountain Spa is pure bliss from the minute you walk in. You can get a massage, a facial, or chill out in the tranquility room by the water fountain. They are also clean. When you want to unwind and de-stress, that is the place to go.

Top 5 – #1

Barnes & Noble

I generally do not like taking books out of the library because I like to buy them. I find it exciting to go to Barnes & Noble to see what latest books they have on the shelves. Starbucks is available for purchase, and it is very relaxing to read a new book while drinking a delicious cup of coffee.

Nickelodeon Universe Amusement Park

You can go to this super-fun amusement park no matter the weather. Can be a little pricey, but there are rides for all ages. The big roller coasters are awesome.

Top 5 – #4

Monster Mini Golf

Mini golf is a classic but definitely check out Monster Mini Golf if you never have. Each hole has sick neon designs, and they blast super-cool music.

Top 5 – #3

Escape Room

My friends and I love to do escape rooms everywhere we go. Such a fun way to see how you work with a team and see how much you can accomplish in so little time.

Top 5 – #2

Dave & Buster’s, Palisades Mall

Arcades like Dave & Buster’s are always a great time. Besides all the classics like skee ball, they’ve come out with super-cool new games that you should definitely check out.

New York Rangers Game

Hockey games are such a great winter activity. The Rangers have been pretty good, and seeing them play during this part of the season is always super-exciting!

Indoor mini golf

It’s never a bad time to play mini golf. When it gets cold outside? Well just head indoors! You can work on your putting game while having some fun family competition.

Top 5 – #4

Paint night

It is a great experience, where you get to learn how to paint like a pro, have a great time, and maybe drink a little wine.

Top 5 – #3

Kalahari Waterpark

This water park is located in the Poconos, not too far from here. There are a number of water slides and activities for both adults and young kids. You get the friendly feel of a cruise atmosphere, without needing to head out to sea. Highly recommend this for everyone.

Top 5 – #2

American Dream Mall

When it’s too cold, or just a rainy day, this is a great way to spend the day. There are a ton of activities to do throughout the mall and plenty of yummy treats.

Top 5 – #1

Turtle Back Zoo

This is a day filled with animals and activities for all ages. It’s a beautiful zoo, not too expensive, and since it’s in West Orange, New Jersey, it’s fairly close for people living in New Jersey and New York.
