Nobody knows about getting around the city with kids better than the moms at, the family fun site for New York City and beyond. We asked them to share the inside scoop on the best local family activities to check out this winter. Get there safely and conveniently with uberFAMILY—the on-demand car seat option for parents on the go.

The Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden
One of the most spectacular events of the season is the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden, where enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks in the 3,000-square-foot Haupt Conservatory. This not-to-be-missed experience runs through January 18. 2900 Southern Boulevard, Bronx, NY 10458

Free Ice Skating at Bryant Park
You can find an ice skating rink in every borough, but we love taking advantage of the free skating at Bryant Park’s Winter Village in Midtown. Bring your own skates and it’s totally free, or rent them there (kid sizes, too!).

City Bakery’s Hot Chocolate Festival
Nothing sweetens a cold winter day like hot cocoa. A favorite? The delicious hot chocolates at Union Square’s City Bakery, which arrive topped with a giant homemade marshmallow. Every February they host a Hot Chocolate Festival, serving up a different flavor every day of the month—a true taste adventure. 3 W 18th St, New York, NY 10011

New Dino at American Museum of Natural History
This winter the American Museum of Natural History is adding to their famous exhibit with a completely new dinosaur. Just another reason to visit one of NYC kids’ favorite destinations. Central Park West & 79th St, New York, NY 10024
