Things to do during spring break #staycation

I’ve been hearing of a lot of our kids’ friends are going to be away next week for the spring vacation with their families.  Not us!  We will be home and we have been thinking of things to do with the kids.  Other than doing some spring cleaning, which definitely needs to be done in our house, here are some other ideas, all staying pretty local:

Take a visit to MADAME TUSSAUDS!

Take the kids to at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester.

Legoland Discovery Center

Yonkers, NY 10710
The new City Builder Attraction just opened last week!
Visitors are invited to use their imaginations as they help LEGO Friends Stephanie, Andrea, Olivia, Mia and Emma to construct an entire LEGO City!

Get on the Intrepid!

Pier 86
W 46th St and 12th Ave
New York, NY 10036-4103
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is dedicated to the exhibition and interpretation of history, science and service as related to its home aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark. As you explore the Museum you will be able to examine original artifacts, view historic video footage and explore interactive exhibits.

Last month, our Cub Scout troop went on an overnight to the Intrepid and I heard nothing but awesome stories about their trip.  We couldn’t join them that night, but my kids can’t wait to visit!




Jimmy Fallon’s Madame Tussauds debut: If you are a Jimmy Fallon fan (and who isn’t?), this is definitely something you want to check out!


“Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” will join Merlin Entertainments at their New York attraction for a special launch of five brand new, never-before-seen wax figures of the television host. The event will take place at Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square and will mark Fallon’s one year anniversary behind “The Tonight Show” desk.

For the first time in history Madame Tussauds will unveil not one, but five, unique wax figures of a single celebrity. Fallon’s figures will be housed in Madame Tussauds U.S. locations spanning the country: New York, Washington DC, Hollywood and San Francisco. His fifth figure will be featured in the newest Madame Tussauds U.S. location in Orlando when it opens May 4, 2015.”
