8 Safe Things to Do This Weekend on the North Shore

What to do to get out and take a break this weekend.

People have been working hard cleaning up from the storm and without power families are probably getting cabin fever. The weekend is here so take a few hours to enjoy a little time out of the house. Here are a few suggestions.

Catch a Movie

Get out and get lost in a movie for a while. Especially good for those without power and already tired of marathon Monopoly games by candlelight.

Where: PJ Cinemas and Loews AMC Stony Brook Theatre

Go Shopping

Some stores have gotten power back and are vowing to open their doors this weekend.

Where: Downtown Rocky Point, Smith Haven Mall and Downtown Port Jefferson

Check Out a Book

Libraries across the region have power back are open for regular business. They also are opening their doors to residents who need a place to recharge electronic devices and use their WiFi.

Where: North Shore Public Library, Port Jefferson Library and Comsewogue Library

Go To a Museum

Take the kids for an educational adventure. They’ve been out of school all week so kids are probably dying to get back to the classroom (not!)

Where: Maritime Explorium in Port Jefferson

Take a Walk

Stretch the legs and get to a wide open space, free of tress and debris so everyone can run around and play.

Where: Mt. Sinai Heritage Park and Harborfront Park
