New York City

Family Travel to New York City

I am so lucky to live just a few hours away from the "greatest city in the world". New York City is much a unique place, and is filled with fantastic culture, food, art, and sites. When I first brought my kids there years ago, they just stared up in amazement.

When planning family travel to New York City, you'll want to make a plan. There is so much to see and do, so you'll need to prioritize. We've been at least five times as a family, and I still have a list of things that we want to experience.

If you are planning a trip to New York City with your family, check out all of our reviews and tips. We have information about going to Broadway with Kids, reviews of museums like the Museum of Math, restaurant reviews, hotel reviews, and much more.

Note that we've experienced some of the destinations/attractions below at no cost for purposes for review in the past.
