February GoList: The Best Things to do with Long Island Kids this Month
It might be the shortest month of the year, but there's certainly no shortage of things to do on Long Island with the kids in February. From celebrating the Super Bowl with chocolate and finding out what Holtsville Hal has to reveal on Groundhog's Day to learning some cooking skills and maple sugaring, mom and dad can find plenty of events and activities to keep the kids occupied during the cold weather. So bundle up and enjoy!
