New York is a playground for kids as much as it’s one for adults. With actual playgrounds scattered throughout the five boroughs as well as bike trails, hiking trails, outdoor activities and tons of kid-friendly activities and attractions. It’s great to get the kids outside for fresh air and space to run around, but sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate. So next time it’s too hot, too cold, or too rainy to get them outside, here are some of the best indoor activities in NYC for kids.
The range of things to do with kids indoors in New York runs the gamut from amazing children's museums to super-fun kids’ cooking classes. There are attractions that are fun for the whole family and kid-friendly pizza places. You can always take the kids shopping for toys, but these indoor activities are more engaging, educational and fun.
Once the kids have burned off all that energy inside, they’ll probably be hungry. So check out some family-friendly restaurants or, to reward yourself for handling the kids all day like a superstar, head to a kid-friendly bar.
