No matter what time of year you visit this historic home and gardens, it leaves an impression. During this holiday season, the home is decorated with beautiful vintage decorations. There is an area to take pictures with Santa, as well as, a place to have refreshments. While walking through the home you could hear a pianist playing in the background. The snow covered grounds add to the setting.

Nassau County Museum of Art

Reviewed By bb_mccaw - New York City

This museum is in the mansion of a former Long Island Gold Coast estatea and across the surrounding grounds. It changes exhibits several times a year, and features significant artwork in almost any media of important artists of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. It is always worth a visit, and the caliber of the work rivals the major museums in Manhattan, albeit on a smaller scale!

We went there for a family outing today and we were surprised to find this wonderful gem. Although this museum appear small at first, it is not, There is a lot to see, aircraft exhibits, space exhibits,interactive exhibits, multiple floors of exhibits, a Fireman's Museum and a cafe. Today we visited the space exhibits. They have thing such as real LEM Moon Lander. space suits, rockets and much more. We also visited the airplane hanger where they a a A-6F Airplane, F-14 Tom Cat Airplane and a A-10 Warthog Airplane. There is so much to see that it will take you multiple days to explore it. There are multiple floors and a skywalk where you can see the exhibits from above the main floor. This is great place for children. There is a lot to see and learn. We will be returning.

NYCB Theatre at Westbury

Reviewed By blackbear59 - New York City

We went to see Colors of Christmas. The show was very entertaining. The seats were great and the sound system was very good. We purchased the VIP package which offers a lounge area . The loung was a nice place to have a conversation prior to the show but the food is nothing spectacular. We enjoyed the VIP parking which provided a short walk to the venue. On this night entering and exiting was not an issue because the show was not that crowded. On the more crowded nightsthat I have been here , it does require a little patience and you should exit out within 15 minutes. Westbury is a very nice place to see a show.

Clark Botanic Garden

Reviewed By YankeeJeff - East Meadow, New York

We lived a short walk from the garden for close to 25 years and we would bring our kids there for the Spooky Walk during the Halloween season at night; but Clark Garden is much more than that. Not nearly as big as the Planting Fields Arboretum, this is a fine alternative when you want to spend less time traveling and just a few hours taking it easy. Lovely gardens with many spots to sit and take it all in. A convenient parking lot is also a plus, less walking and traveling, what more could you want.

Can You Escape LI

You and your team get locked in a fully themed room. The clock starts as soon as you enter. You have 60 heart pounding minutes to solve the puzzles, find the clues, and get out. You need to think outside of the box and think fast. Can You Escape? Many will try, few will succeed.

Karli was amazing as a game master. Staff was super friendly and encouraging as usual. Second time going and I can't say enough good things about this establishment. It is a MUST if you are in the area!

Roosevelt Field

Reviewed By Stucolco - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

We saw the movie "Coco" at AMC Roosevelt Field 8 on Christmas Day and it was a strange feeling seeing all the empty parking lots as the mall itself was closed. The movie theatre with its reserved stadium seating was very comfortable and is an excellent place to see a movie.

Long Island Children's Museum

Long Island Children's Museum offers 14 interactive exhibits plus live theater, art spaces and daily activities to provide hours of discovery for children of all ages.

Reviewed By Jessika W - Canton, Michigan

Not cheap to get into, and very crowded. The preschool play area looked great, but when we arrived at 11 the soonest time to play was 3:30. There was definitely not enough for my boys, 7 & 3, to do for that long so we left after a few hours. They had fun, but not as entertaining as other children’s museums we’ve been to.
