New York City Vacation Families

Ready to take a wonderful New York City vacation for families? A hotbed of culture, food, music, museums, and more, no wonder NYC is one of the most recognizable destinations worldwide. Due to all the hustle and bustle, you also might not realize how much New York City with kids has to offer. Take little ones for a ride on Battery Park’s famous (and beautiful) Seaglass Carousel, or to see a life-size dinosaur at the Natural History Museum. Boys are sure to love the Intrepid, a museum located on a legendary aircraft carrier. History buffs will also enjoy a trip to Ellis Island, and there are tons of museums for art lovers, like the MET and the MoMa. And all kids are sure to be mesmerized by the lights of Times Square, surrounded by their favorite cartoon characters. Central Park is a must-see, and if you visit in the winter, it’s a great spot for ice skating. If you have the time, check out one of the many kid-friendly Broadway shows, such as The Lion King or Frozen. Plus, there are many kid-friendly dining options, including famous dessert spots like Dylan’s Candy Bar. There’s just so much to do in the Big Apple! No matter when your New York City vacation for families, NYC is sure to feed your soul.
