Upper West Side
This expansive neighborhood is one of the most kid friendly in all of Manhattan. For an immersive day trip, venture to the American Museum of Natural History and join your kids in a hands-on experience in the Discovery Room, enjoy the Dark Universe space show at Hayden Planetarium and don’t forget to visit the dinosaur exhibits. After hours of exploration, sate that inquisitive palate at Alice’s Tea Cup for brunch, lunch or a decadent traditional English tea spread. For the crafty set, start the day by bringing a masterpiece to light at Craft Studio where you can make a variety of creations like birdhouses, bracelets, lamps, yummy edible crafts and more. Using all that creative elbow grease is bound to work up an appetite, so head on over to Good Enough to Eat to end the day with some tasty comfort food like lemon parmesan chicken and buttermilk-fried onion rings.
