Top Activities for Kids in January in the New York Area

The holidays are over, and the cold weather is here. But that's no excuse for staying home and pining away for summer! Winter is a great time to get out as a family, whether it's to an indoor play space in your neighborhood or to a day-trip destination a couple of hours away. Here are our top picks for things to do with kids in January in our region: 

1. Hit the slopes: Where to go skiing and snowboarding in the Northeast.
