Fun Family Things to Do in New York City


New York City (or The Big Apple as some people call it) is one of the most visited destinations in the world.   This is not a surprise for those who know how many things this huge city has to offer. There are dozens of places that are worth visiting and many activities to get involved. Families with children will also have a chance to experience many new things. If you are planning to go to New York City with your children you should make a good plan because you might miss some of the best spots.

To start with, you can visit the symbol of freedom, the statue that is featured in many movies, TV shows, books, magazines and online presentations – the Statue of Liberty. You can find many tours that will take you to this site where you and your children can learn more about the history of this famous statue and some fun facts about it. Don’t forget to take family photos and include the Statue of Liberty in these photos.

Furthermore, you should visit the American Museum of History. In case you want to learn more about American history and help your children understand the greatness of their nation then a trip to the American Museum of History is a must. This is the place where you can find many different relics, artifacts and items that played significant roles in the American history. The children are usually most fascinated by the enormous dinosaur skeletons found in the museum.

If you are a fan of beautiful views, take the Staten Island Ferry ride which lasts less than 30 minutes. Stay away from this ferry during rush hours because it can get too crowded. Tourists use this ride to take photos of the amazing New York Harbor.

Visiting New York City without visiting the Central Park would be a huge mistake. Located in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the world, the Central park covers an area of about 843 acres. In this park, people can see many different types of plants and even some animals. The lake, the boat house, having picnics – these are some of the things that people do in Central Park. Although people can see many interesting things while walking on their own in this park, the best way to get a unique experience is to take some of the Central Park Tours. If you are there with your kids, you can rest assured that they will love the Central Park Pedicab Tours.

With the help of these tours, you will be able to get an organized sightseeing of some of the best places in the Central park. Some of the places that are covered with these tours include the Tavern on the Green, Cherry Hill, Bow Bridge, Strawberry Fields, The Mall, Dakota Building, Belvedere Castle, Delacorte Theater, the Summer Stage, Conservatory Garden and the Great Lawn. These tours include guides with vast experience and knowledge that will provide interesting information about these places. There are Central Park Tours with different duration – one, two and three-hour tours and obviously the one that lasts three hours will help you visit more places.

Keep in mind that these are only some of the many things that you can experience in New York City!
