Family Fun in New York City

A few must-see family friendly destinations for your next NYC adventure.

New York City, aka The Big Apple, The City that Never Sleeps, and a plethora of other names, is always full of exciting activities that the whole family can enjoy no matter what the occasion. Times Square is one of the most iconic locations in NYC of all time, and you can make this trip a little extra sweet by visiting Hershey’s Chocolate World. Their building is the largest permanent structure in Times Square, and features a dazzling lights display that is 215 feet tall. Children will love satisfying their sweet tooth on the hundreds of varieties of candy they stock as well as learn and play with their 16 floors of interactive fun.

 Speaking of heights, no trip to NYC would be complete without seeing the city from high in the sky. Top of the Rock in Rockefeller Plaza features their famous observatory deck with one of the best views the city has to offer. Top of the Rock also has indoor skyline viewing with an interactive breezeway that lights up like a rainbow with the touch of your hand, and the gorgeous Swarovski chandelier will take your breath away. Kids can have fun running up and down the rainbow hallway, Adults can have a romantic view, and you can get that unforgettable family portrait with the entirety of NYC in the background.

Another must visit NYC attraction is the famous Madame Tussauds, a stop that both locals and tourists visit time and time again. Madame Tussauds is a funky museum featuring life-like wax figures of celebrities, politicians, sports stars, and more. Where else can you take a picture with the President or The Beatles? Kids can find their favorite movie stars, TV icons, and super heroes, and adults can pose with classic characters such as Lucy from I Love Lucy; this is a wacky fun attraction that the whole family can enjoy.

Recommended Fun!
