Summer Fun Guide for NYC Kids

Beaches, Water Playgrounds and Free Things to Do with Kids in New York City

Summer is an amazing season in the Big Apple. Families can take advantage of all the fun the city has to offer: beaches, pools, outdoor concerts and movies, boat rides, events and activities, much of it completely free, turning the town into one big summer-long fest—and we don't mean a "sweat-fest," either. There are a ton of ways to stay cool and enjoy summer in the city with your family.

Whether you're visiting New York City for the day, a week or hanging here with your kids the entire season, our Summer Fun Guide gives you everything you need know to have an incredible time with the kids.
