There are few places that match the outsized imagination of a child, but New York City is wondrous enough to try. Between skyscrapers, musical performances, and world-famous zoos, it’s a holiday the kids will never forget.
When you’re travelling to New York City as a family, there’s one place you need to explore first and foremost: Times Square.
You and the kids can stand in the middle of Times Square and admire the cloud-high lights and billboards. This is the beacon of NYC and travellers from all over the world come to admire the view. After taking some photographs, walk to Broadway for a musical performance. If it’s playing in NYC, it’s a big deal. There are several theatres offering everything from one-man plays to multi-cast musicals.
For a little contrast, consider leaving the steel buildings behind for the ocean. Coney Island is a staple of Brooklyn and is one of the top activities in New York. Coney’s boardwalk is a juxtaposition of old New York, with its classic rides and hotdogs, and modern New York, with 21st century coasters and healthy treats. Enjoy the best of both worlds as you and the kids try out any of the 50 rides.
