Stepping into this warmer weather has us looking for things to do. From celebrating mom to MDW, check out our list for things to do in the NYC area!
Who doesn’t want to treat mom to a day out in the city? There are many amazing things to do. Take your mom for a lunch cruise around Manhattan. Or brunch with the animals at the Central Park Zoo. If you want to celebrate a couple days early, hit the Mother’s Day Good Music Festival on Friday, May 12 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn featuring R&B superstars Tyrese, Anthony Hamilton, KEM, and Brandy.
May is Bike Month in NYC, so if you’ve been thinking about getting a two-wheeled mode of transport, now is the perfect time. It’s warming up, and ParkFast have special rooms where you can park your bike while you’re at work or want to take a break and enjoy the city on foot. Check out BikeNYC.com for a list of all things bicycle during Bike Month.
There will be parades all over the city, and Fleet Week coincides with the annual remembrance of those who have served. Of course, if you’re looking for some fun in the sun on the first unofficial day of summer, there are tons of outdoor events. Whether you’re hitting one of New York City’s great beaches, or enjoying the annual Memorial Day concert with the New York Philharmonic. Come into the city, park with us, and head out with friends or family to some delightful events.
