Celebrate the lives of those who have served our country this holiday by making Memorial Day for kids a special opportunity for family time. Your 2018 Memorial Day weekend NYC-goal should be to explore the top things to do in spring with kids together, as well as enjoy some spectacular summer day trips from NYC and even beaches near NYC (though we expect they'll be packed if the weather's fair!)
