New York City: A Travel Guide of Things to do with Kids

Follow us around the New York City leg of our summer family vacation in this Travel Guide to NYC with kids! You may have already seen my other city guides to Boston’s South End and Cape Cod, but if not you can click through their names above to read!


It’s always so special to be with the kids in New York City. My hometown, every time we return it feels like I never left.

There’s always so much to do and there’s never a dull moment. We always love visiting the Freedom Tower and this time we even ventured out to some new kid-friendly spots around the city.

the color factory

The Color Factory is a must visit if you’re in town! The kids had such a great time playing with the installations and it’s super IG friendly ;)

world trade one

The best views of the city! It feels like you’re up in the clouds and made extra special given its special dedication. We always come here whenever we visit The City.

The vessel

The Vessel is a super cool new installation near the high-line and Tudor loved running up and down all the stairs! Not so much fun running for Mommy and Daddy but you know… ;)
