Take a look at some of these attractions to see if any might seem interesting to your kids--

BERMUDA MARITIME MUSEUM--(Dockyard complex)

http://www.bmm.bm/

BERMUDA AQUARIUM & ZOO--(Village of Flatts)

http://www.bamz.org/

BERMUDA UNDERWATER EXPLORATION INSTITUTE--(Hamilton)--

http://www.buei.org/

CRYSTAL & FANTASY CAVES--

http://www.caves.bm/

Attend the SKIRLING CEREMONY-- bipb.bm/2012/11/05/skirling-ceremony-201213/ - on Mondays at NOON, up at FORT HAMILTON and tour the old fortification at Fort Hamilton (underground passages, dry moat, etc)...and tour about to some of Bermuda's other old fortifications--FORT SCAUR (Somerset), FORT SAINT CATHERINE (Saint George's), ADMIRALTY HOUSE PARK (West Pembroke), et al.

Walk / Hike sections of the BERMUDA RAILWAY TRAIL-- http://www.bermudarailway.net/ --Two sections that are especially scenic are the far western section of the BRT, between Somerset Bridge and Mangrove Bay (approx. 2 mi.) with wonderful Great Sound water views....and the section along the north shore, in Hamilton Parish between Coney Island and Shelly Bay (approx. 2 mi), with wonderful north shore ocean views. These sections of the trail are easily accessed via public bus routes.

Walk / hike the trails along the foreshore and trails through the dunes behind and cliff tops above at SOUTH SHORE PARK, between HORSESHOE BAY and WARWICK LONG BAY (approx. 1½ mi.)....and even though Ocean Water Temps during February may be cooler than most find '..comfortable..', you can STILL pack a picnic lunch and spend a day at the beach...collecting the '..pinkest..' Bermuda sand (found down at the surf line and around rocks), collecting and 'stringing' the many little '..Keyhole Limpet..' shells...fly a kite...toss a Frisbee.... enjoying each other's company and absolutely SPECTACULAR setting.

Try out the brand new mini-golf course--FUN GOLF-- http://www.fungolf.bm/ --out at the Dockyard complex.

Take an escorted tour of the BERMUDA BOTANIC GARDEN--

bermudayp.com/local/47:29793/bermuda_botanic…

Sit at the bottom and WATCH your kids climb all one-hundred-eighty-five steps to the top of GIBBS HILL LIGHTHOUSE-- http://bermudalighthouse.com/ --for spectacular, 360° panoramic views of Bermuda.

For one of Bermuda's biggest and best BARGAIN activities...just ride ANY ferry that's runnin'...anywhere...anytime.

Forgot a '..biggie..' if you're travelin' with kids....stop at the BAILEY'S ICE CREAM shop (the Rum Raisin is damn near worth the entire airfare to Bermuda), located at the top of Blue Hole Hill (directly across the road from the SWIZZLE INN--http://www.swizzleinn.com/ . Stop and get the kids ice cream...then head across the road to get the adults a pitcher or three of Rum Swizzles (best in Bermuda...accept no substitutes...order your second pitcher when they bring your first to save time) at the original SWIZZLE INN.

Bailey's also offers a very basic and inexpensive lunch menu--sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.
