2 Cultural Days in New York for Kids All Ages

by Rowena Carr Allinson   Experienced Traveler
New York City is one of the best places in the US to soak up culture on a family vacation. And there are many more kid-friendly attractions that fit the cultural tag than you might think. From the family-friendly museums like MOMA and historic buildings like the Empire State to the most obvious park, Central Park, and the less obvious Highline. Although it’s near impossible to pack it all into two days, here’s how to try!<br/><br/>(Rowena Carr-Allison is a travel writer and an NYC destination expert.)

2 Days in New York for All Ages - Top Attractions

by Rowena Carr Allinson   Experienced Traveler
Cramming everything you might want to see in the Big Apple on an NYC family vacation in two days is a tough call, but here are our must-see attractions. Whether you like to hit the green spaces, the shopping, and the sights or just take in the atmosphere in the bustling metropolis, there is plenty to do for adults and kids in New York City! <br/><br/>(Rowena Carr-Allison is a travel writer and an NYC destination expert.)

by Mimi Slawoff Mendelson   World-Class Traveler
While you won't see NYC’s 5 boroughs on a 2-day family trip, you’ll get a good taste of the Big Apple in Manhattan, where most major sights are located. Make like a local and walk through Times Square and Central Park. Take the subway to visit the Bronx Zoo and Empire State Building. If visiting Liberty Island is too big of a commitment, take a shortcut and ride the free Staten Island Ferry for close-up views of the Statue of Liberty and city sights.<br/><br/>(Mimi Slawoff is a family travel expert.)
