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.)
