9 Ways to Overcome Cabin Fever

Although we have certainly enjoyed our last few snow days, the seemingly incessant downpours and freezing temperatures have led us to a case of cabin fever. Overcome feelings of isolation and claustrophobia by venturing outside for some very Long Island-like activities.

1. Catch a Show at the Theatre at Westbury

On the calendar for the rest of the month: a performance by Dave Mason, a tribute to the ’90s with hits from Salt N Pepa, Rob Base and much more. 

2. Learn About History at the American Airpower Museum

The aviation museum seeks to preserve “the legacy of all Americans who have sacrificed themselves to defend our liberties and to educate a new generation regarding […] our nation’s citizen soldiers.” It’s our duty as Americans to visit the venue.

3. Sing Along to Hairspray at the Cultural Arts Playhouse

Running through Feb. 21, the show is set in 1962 Baltimore, Maryland and offers some of the most exciting musical theater ever seen on Long Island.

4. Shop Until You Drop at Americana

Spend the day revamping your wardrobe…and then take a break to devour the Robiola pizza at Cipollini.

5. Get Lost in the Nassau County Museum of Art

Nestled in the 145-acre former Frick Estate, the Roslyn Harbor museum is one of the most peaceful places on the whole Island.

6. Pick Up an Instrument

This will require a bit more than a one-day commitment, but if now is not the time…then when is it? Head to the Great Neck Music Conservatory and learn how to channel your inner Mozart.

7. Take the Little Ones to the Long Island Children’s Museum

Trust us, they’ll forever be grateful for this outing.

8. Grab a Book and Get Comfy in Port Washington

Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington is the ideal respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. We also suggest relaxing while overlooking the Manhasset Bay at Louie’s Oyster Bar & Grille.

9. Get Interactive at the Long Island Aquarium
