Summer has (unofficially) started, and the best things to do with kids in NYC this weekend are great ways to welcome the season. 

Pay tribute to those who have served our country with NYC's Memorial Day activities for kids and families. There are plenty of parades and ceremonies happening throughout the five boroughs that will help you show your appreciation. 

Now that the weather is starting to cooperate, you'll definitely want to make the most out of fun outdoor activities for kids, too! Seventy-degree temperatures ensure fun visits to kids' amusement parks and great opportunities to dine outdoors.

Even better? All of NYC's cool beaches for kids will officially open on Saturday! We sure hope your sand castle-building skills are up to snuff. We have a feeling that the competition will be fierce this summer! 

Enjoy your extra day off this weekend and learn more about how to celebrate Memorial Day for kids this year in NYC.
