Ok, so we by no means condone your little Eskimos jumping into the frigidly cold Atlantic in January. But that doesn’t mean they won’t get a kick out of watching others do it! Head to Coney Island for the annual plunge, where hundreds of swimmers will run into the ocean. Deno’s Wonder Wheel will open up for the day, so take a spin while visiting the boardwalk. Make a day out of it and visit the penguins and fish at the aquarium.
