There’s no such thing as a boring day in New York City. Whether you’re in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or The Bronx, we’ve got the best events and fun around the city for kids in New York. Get out and about to explore family-friendly NYC. Jump on the subway and head to the best New York museums, like the American Museum of Natural History or the Metropolitan Museum. Check out the skaters in Central Park and the carousel. Or head to one of New York’s amazing free playgrounds.
Did you know you can find plenty of nature for kids to enjoy in NYC? Prospect Park is an amazing green space in Brooklyn packed with playgrounds, open space and so much fun. We also love Brooklyn Bridge Park and Domino Park (both in Brooklyn) for family fun. In the summer and fall you can take a quick ferry over to Governor’s Island to ride bicycles and picnic. In the evening you can catch a kids’ theater or Broadway show. You could also enjoy a delicious family-friendly meal at a New York restaurant.
At the weekend we recommend having a brunch with kids in New York. Then either walk over the Brooklyn Bridge or head to the Bronx Zoo or World’s Fair Park. In the summertime we love to splash around in one of New York’s water fountain playgrounds, or head to Coney Island or the Far Rockaways to the beach. There’s so much to do that’s fun around the city for kids in New York!
