With summer fast approaching and children out of school, many load up the SUV and hit the road for a much-needed vacation. Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer season.
But with sky-high gas prices as a strong deterrent, you might choose not to travel at all this year. There’s also three months of your child’s downtime to account for. How to fill the rest of those dog days?
Staycation, of course.
Patch wants to know where do you go to entertain your family and play locally? Is it a favorite park, bike path, museum, movie theater or kid-friendly lunch spot?
Here are some local spots to spend the day with the family:
(228-06 Northern Boulevard, Douglaston)
Flushing Meadows Corona Park
