10 Super Fun Things to Do in NYC (New York City)
Empire State Building: The Empire State Building is definitely a site to see! I think when you think of “New York City”, this building is one of the first to come to mind! It stands at 1,454 ft tall and has 102 stories! It is a really great time to visit and it is fairly affordable for a family to visit.
Statue of Liberty: Lady Liberty has always been a beautiful piece of NYC. It is located in the New York Harbor. This statue was sculpted by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and was gifted to the US from France. We should all really appreciate such a beautiful piece! You can visit Lady Liberty and it is definitely an experience.
Baseball: New York is the home to not one, but two MLB Professional baseball teams, The New York Mets as well as The New York Yankees. I always find that baseball games are really fun and attending a Yankees game is truly an experience in it’s own. It is unlike any other game I’ve attended!
Coney Island: If you’re looking to have a fun filled day, what could be more fun than an amusement park?! Coney Island is SO much fun and it’s a perfect day spent for anyone! There is rides, beaches, and so much more in one location! Whether you are young, old, or in between, you’re bound to have a good time at Coney Island!
Little Italy: Little Italy is located in Manhattan and it is filled with small Italian stores and restaurants. This is such a great place to go to get a little taste of what it would be like in Italy. I personally love Italian food so this is an absolute must for me! Get a taste of true Italy!
Zoos: There are two really great zoos in New York City, The Bronx Zoo as well as the Central Park Zoo. I am a huge fan of animals and love to visit them within the zoos and being that New York has two you have great opportunities to visit and have a great time while seeing adorable animals!
Central Park: Central Park is a big part of the thought of New York City as well! Everyone knows that Central Park is in NYC and it’s mentioned quite frequently in a lot of television shows and movies! Nothing is more beautiful and relaxing than taking a stroll through Central Park.
Times Square: What isn’t there to do at Times Square?! It is a fun filled, amazing time! There is dining, hotels, shopping, and even entertainment! Times Square is so beautiful at night, filled with so many colors and bright lights. Just being there is enough for me, but all the things to do is a bonus! LOL I hope to attend a New Year’s Eve party in Times Square sometime in my life!
Broadway: I am personally one that absolutely loves plays and musicals! Nothing compares to seeing a Broadway show! Broadway is an amazing experience and I would highly highly recommend it if you’re going to be in New York because there really is nothing like seeing a Broadway show in the Big City!
9/11 Memorial: September 11, 2001 was a very hard hitting, tragic day for America. This clearly doesn’t fall under the “Super Fun” title of this post, but it is something important and recommended for NYC visitors. On this day, we were attacked and many lost their lives and this occurred in New York City, destroying the Twin Towers. Today there is a 9/11 Memorial and Museum in NYC and it is such an incredible place to visit. This is such a surreal and moving museum and it is a must visit for anyone visiting NYC!
These are just 10 of the many many things to do in NYC – but even if I could include 100 things, a list couldn’t do NYC justice. The list could really go on and on, if you’ve never been to New York City…I would highly recommend it, trust me…You won’t regret it!
