Although it’s a hustling, bustling, iconic destination, New York City has plenty to offer when it comes to family friendly excursions for young and old alike. A two day trip leaves little downtime for visitors who truly want to experience all its epic reputation ( especially with kids ) but planned correctly, you and your family will have the time of your life.
To start out your jam-packed, two-day weekend, families might enjoy a hearty breakfast at the highly acclaimed restaurant Norma’s followed by some playtime in the legendary Central Park. After a trip to the American Girl Place and Kidding Around are definite go-to destinations for any family visiting the city and kids absolutely cannot head home without admiring the selection of treats at the original Dylan’s Candy Bar.
In the evening, grab an early meal and top the night off with an iconic Broadway hit like The Lion King or Phantom of the Opera. After such a busy day exploring around town, your kids are sure to be completely worn out!
The second day’s itinerary includes a venture out to the historic Statue of Liberty. Kids will love riding the fairy out to Liberty Island and climbing the stairs to the top of the monument. Head back to Central Park for a tour of their renowned zoo, and in the afternoon, board the subway for the Bronx where families will take in an exciting game of baseball at Yankee Stadium.
If there is any time left in the day, just take it easy and take a leisure stroll back to wherever you final destination may be. Along the way, soak in the sights, sound and the livelihood of the city the never sleeps.
