Summer Fun in NYC
There’s always something fun to do with the kids in the Big Apple year-round, whether it’s going to one of the many museums or checking out a Broadway show. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret: Summer is the time to come for special events. And this one is no exception. Check out three super-neat, limited-time-only attractions you don’t want to miss.
* The New York City Waterfalls. This unique art installation by Olafur Eliasson consists of four spectacular man-made water falls in the East River. By far, the coolest is the one directly under the Brooklyn Bridge. You can check them out from the shore, or for an awesome up-close look, take a scenic cruise on the Circle Line. The exhibit runs through October 13th.
* Cirque Dreams: Jungle Fantasy. Cirque Productions takes over Broadway for a limited run (through August 24th) of their nature-inspired show. My 9-year-old niece was mesmerized by the colorful costumes and jaw-dropping acrobatics–and yes, I was too! In fact, it’s a safe bet that the performance will wow everyone in your family with all the high-flying fun.
* Hot-air balloon rides from Central Park. Get a once-in-a-lifetime view of Central Park and Manhattan from 30 stories up. These hot-air balloon rides are very popular and surprisingly cheap: $25 for adults and $17.50 for kids. But hurry up–the tours only go through August 22nd!Add a Comment
