Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Swap the skyscrapers and overcrowded F train for some outdoor tranquility. NYC might be a concrete jungle, but its beautiful greenery is not to be missed. If you're not feeling terribly convinced, head to one of the five boroughs' nature centers and take in the scenery.
Thanks to a variety of programs and activities, these NYC nature centers allow families to enjoy their surroundings and learn a bit more about the grounds. For those in need of a break from the big city, head to a local park to see various offerings. You'll be hiking through dirt trails and planting flowers in no time.
Looking for more ideas once you leave the city's nature centers? Get inspired by our list of things to do in spring and make a checklist for your crew, head to one of these museums for kids or start planning a trip to one of these awesome family resorts.
