Planning a family trip to New York is only difficult because there is so much to see and explore. Take a quick look at the five ideas below to help you get the planning started.

1. Explore Central Park.

This lovely urban park is one of the most famous in the country. Between the vintage carousel, Belvedere Castle, boating on the lake, and the park’s many different playgrounds, there are so many things to do in Central Park. You can even treat fairy tale fans with a carriage ride through the park.

2. Learn at the Museums.

There are a lot of museums in New York, so you may find it difficult to choose just one to visit. As parents, you can be sure that every New York museum will be educational. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, American Museum of Natural History, and New York Fire Museum are a few of the great selections for kids.

3. Go Camping.

Get away from the big city by escaping to upstate New York for glorious woods, incredible lakes, and quiet campsites. There are many exciting outdoor activities Lake George for kids to enjoy in New York, like sailing, horseback riding, canoeing, hiking, and apple picking.

4. Catch a Show.

Introduce your children to live music and entertainment in New York. They may be too young to appreciate the opera or watch a rock concert, but they may love seeing one of their favorite Disney movies brought to life on Broadway.

5. Tour a College or University.

Visiting New York with your children can also be an excellent (and sly) way to show them truly impressive and famous colleges and universities for a little academic inspiration. New York University, Juilliard, West Point, and Sarah Lawrence College are just some of the incredible institutions for teens to visit in New York.

New York is filled with adventure, and that adventure is made better by sharing it with your family.
