There’s so much to see and do at the High Line that it’s difficult to recommend where to begin! New York’s famed elevated park features plants and grasses native to the area, along with regular art shows and performances, plus free history, art and nature tours (found under the High Line website’s “Things to Do” tab. Stay on the lookout for Make It kids’ programming, which occurs throughout spring, summer and fall and generally caters to kids ages 1–12. Have tots in tow? Elevator access can be found on Gansevoort St, West 16th St, West 23rd St and West 30th St in case you’re lugging a stroller on your journey.

The High Line is a gorgeous place to take the family to check out public art, pretty plantings and fun free activities (usually free summer programming). The spring/summer concessions are now better than ever (there's even an Ample Hills)! If you're traveling with little ones, take note that there aren't many bathrooms, but you can find the ones they do have at 16th St east of 10th ave and then at Gansevoort St at the Diller von Furstenburg Building.
