Posted on: September 20th, 2016

As the summer wears off, you might be on the lookout for ideas for new things to do with your kids to keep them entertained. Whether it’s taking them to a scenic park, the outdoors offers tons of opportunity for you and your family to have fun

If you’re planning your day trip for New York City, there are myriad outstanding options for fun, education, delicious food and memory making. Here are some awesome ideas for day trips in the New York City area.

Book Transportation

Chauffeured Transportation is a must any time you’re heading into New York. After all, who wants their relaxing day trip to be interspersed with the crazy stresses of navigating and parking in one of the most crowded cities in the world? Chauffeured Transportation will ensure that you have someone to pick you up, drop you off and handle each step of the navigation process. Your chauffeur will be a local expert that can offer advice on restaurants and activities and will know the shortest routes to each destination.

Plan an art museum Day Trip

New York City is one of the best cities in the world for art lovers; there are tons of museums, galleries and exhibitions to ensure that your day trip is non-stop, art-centered fun. One of the favorite galleries in the city, for both its architecture and its steady rotation of impressive exhibits, is the Guggenheim Museum on 5th Avenue. Conceived by Frank Lloyd Wright and completed in 1959, the museum is home to many impressive permanent exhibitions from artists like Monet, Degas, Pissaro and more. There is also a selection of visiting art exhibitions, as well.

Also on 5th Avenue is the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is one of the largest and most expansive collections of both classic and contemporary art in the world. Your entire day could consist of perusing through the many galleries, which include some of the most famous works of art in world history.

Food near the Guggenheim

Another thing you’ll need to plan for your day trip to New York City is where you’ll eat. Luckily, the Museum is near tons of impressive restaurants that are sure to make your mealtime fantastic, like Yura on Madison, one of the best sandwich shops in the area. From affordable varieties of meats and cheeses, delicious salads and desserts, Yura is a great option for those of you looking for a convenient spot to refuel during your museum experience.

The Carlyle, located inside the luxurious Rosewood Hotel, is another great destination for meal time after you round out your art-viewing experience in the Big Apple. The elegance and ambiance of this dinner selection will transform your day trip into a lasting, memorable experience, complete, perhaps, with a delightful serving of lobster thermidor.

A Sense of New York’s Vast Size

Visit the Empire State Building to give your kids a bird’s eye perspective of Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs.

Take a boat cruise around the island of Manhattan with Circle Line Sightseeing, the “Full Island Cruise” gives you another perspective of the size of the island of Manhattan and a closer view of some of its neighborhoods. They can learn about numerous interesting facts about New York City, its history, famous buildings and citizens from our highly knowledgeable and entertaining guide.

Introduce Them to Its Varied and Colorful Neighborhoods

A big part of what makes New York City so special is its many diverse neighborhoods. Venture to Chinatown for an authentic dim sum lunch and enjoyed an impromptu stop at Columbus Park where you can observe players of Xiangqi (Chinese Chess) and listened to performers of Chinese Opera and erhu (Chinese string instrument).

In Little Italy you can savor New York style pizza, followed by gelato and cannolis at one of its many bakeries and cafes. Visit SoHo and the Lower East Side for great restaurants and shopping (if you are lucky, you might even spot a celebrity or two).

Planning an ideal getaway to New York City for your special day trip takes a lot of research and careful planning. But you can rest assured that with the Big Apple’s art scene on hand and a trustworthy transportation company booked your day will be one of your favorite family memories.
