Ahoy, sailors! Fleet Week NYC is a seven-day celebration in New York City, which honors the members of the United States Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps. Every year, the weeklong party kicks off with the Parade of Ships—a flotilla of visiting vessels and tall ships that cruise along the Hudson river—and continues with military demonstrations, a Memorial Day ceremony and more outstanding things to do around some great New York City attractions. We’ll share everything from where to visit in-service ships docked in NYC piers to how to get “on fleek” for Fleet Week (in case you want to impress a few seafaring gentlemen). For more things to do in May, be sure to check our NYC events in May calendar.
