1 Day in New York City with Teens

by Sonia Esther Soltani   Experienced Traveler
Teens aren't easily impressed, but there's no doubt a family vacation in NYC will prove exciting and fun for even the most jaded teenager. So many iconic sites to check out, so much to see and do in the Big Apple. Stay in a great kid-friendly hotel centrally located, choose activities that allow the family to pack in a lot of sights, add a bit of shopping and a glitzy show, and you have the perfect mix for a successful short-break in NYC. <br/><br/>(Sonia Esther Soltani is an NYC travel expert.)

2 Days in New York City with Big Kids and Tweens - Top Attractions

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.)

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.)
