You simply can’t go wrong with New York, no matter how old or young. Like all destinations, making a vacation what you want requires that you know where to go and what to do that will make it more than just ordinary. Transform New York from ordinary to extraordinary with great kid friendly destinations for your family.
Central Park – More than just pretty, it is an icon of the city and offers a fun and enjoyable way to experience New York. Not just a park, a part of New York City and its history, what better way to get out some energy and still be seeing a part of New York that everyone will enjoy.
FAO Schwartz – Talk about iconic, if you were born in the 70’s or before and are a fan of Tom Hanks, you may remember the iconic scene from BIG when Tom Hanks was playing on the giant keyboard. If you do, this is the spot! Though it may be a bit overwhelming, this is one place where you can feel like a kid too.
The Subway – Millions of New Yorkers never even set foot in a car, relying instead on one of the most integral parts of the city today, the subway. Not only can you get where you are going without breaking the bank, but for many of us suburbanites, it may be a completely new and New York experience.
Empire State Building – Planning is important when it comes to this destination however, as it is one of the most iconic structures in the world and therefore, busy. If you plan on making this your stop, go early or later in the day and plan to visit during the week to avoid the major lines.
Museums, bridges, parks, stores and other iconic structures offer you and your family plenty of other places to see and things to do, however, remember when traveling with kids, spend more time just relaxing and visit fewer destinations to really maximize the experience.Have you been to New York City with your family?
