Each year, members of the United States Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps gather in New York City to celebrate the seafaring wing of our armed forces. The 28th annual Fleet Week NYC kicks off with the Parade of Ships, a flotilla of visiting vessels and tall ships that cruise along the Hudson River, and the festivities continue into the week with musical performances, military demonstrations and a Memorial Day ceremony, with many of the things to do centered around the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. There's also the chance to visit in-service ships docked in city harbors. And then, of course, there's the sight of Navy men and women on shore leave, taking in the sights, engaging in high jinks and making us swoon. For more things to do in May, be sure to check our expansive May events calendar.
