This summer, explore the best free kayaking NYC has on its roster. The season wouldn't be complete without a few rowing sessions across the East River.
Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to enroll the kiddos in sleepaway camps or pack up for family weekend getaways to enjoy a taste of nature. Even the greatest city in the world is home to some of the best outdoor activities for kids! All you need to do is grab a lifevest and hit the water.
You can venture to your local park or volunteer-run organizations for a chance to kayak (or canoe) on a grand voyage with your little ones. Chances are they'll want to sign up for second and third rides—and we can't blame 'em!
Check out our go-to picks for the coolest free kayaking NYC offers and make the most out of your summer vacation!
