If you live in NYC then odds are you’ve made your way to the famous Bronx Zoo. Even if you’re just visiting, you’ve probably heard of it since it’s one of the largest zoos in America and takes up 265 acres. The zoo has reopened, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all guests must have a date-specific ticket. In accordance with current New York State policy, face masks must be worn at all times by staff and guests. Masks are required for all guests over the age of two, regardless of vaccination status or medical condition.

A city with as many options as NYC means that there’s something for every type of family. The nature-lovers, the explorers, and the food-lovers will all find something that suits them on this list—promise.
