How To Do NYC With Kids

So you’re planning a trip to the big apple, and you’re taking the kids along with you? Don’t worry; it’s not all about rooftop bars and amazing shopping; there are loads to do in New York City for the whole family. You can pack a lot into just a few days in NYC, so no matter how long you’re going there for, here are just a few things you need to make sure you have on your list:

Go To Central Park

A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a trip or two to central park, and as it is so vast and there are so many things to do, you can go more than once. Whether it’s cycling there, getting a horse and carriage ride, ice skating, boating on the lake, rollerblading, going on a guided tour or just simply walking around, it’s one of the greatest parks in the world and not to be missed.

American Girl Doll Store

If you’re not heard of this one, but you have a daughter who loves dolls, then this is a must. If you haven’t got one already then obviously you can purchase your American Girl Doll here but also get their hair styled at the salon, your daughter can have lunch with their doll and just enjoy shopping and looking through all the accessories.

Empire State Building

For anyone at any age, it’s a cool place to be standing at the top of the Empire State Building. It not only has the most amazing view, but it is an icon of New York City and one of the most famous buildings in the world. You can go up during the day, at sunset or in the evening - anytime is just as amazing as another.

See A Show On Broadway

Broadway is amazing and another part of New York not to be missed. There are so many great shows, some you can’t see anywhere else yet and some that are fantastic for the kids. You could go with a classic like The Lion King or see something new and different and get yourself some Dear Evan Hansen tickets and see something before anyone else at home does.

The Natural History Museum

This is an amazing museum which covers two square blocks, and you won’t get a chance to cover the whole thing in one day. The dinosaurs are usually the biggest draw, but there’s also the giant blue whale, African elephants, the animal dioramas, as well as fabulous gems and minerals too. There is a Discovery Room where kids can hunt for animals in a replica African baobab tree or examine specimens such as minerals or skulls. The museum is adjoined to the Rose Center for Earth and Space with exhibits and spectacular shows at the Hayden Planetarium, and you can catch Nature films on the huge IMAX screen too. Also, it’s not just the film; you can now have a Night at the Museum sleepover and enjoy a midnight fossil hunt and films.
