5 Fun & Family-Friendly Attractions in New York

Wondering what to do with your family this summer? We have an easy solution. First, come to The Manhattan Club, your home in New York. Second, head out to any of these classic or new attractions that are great for children of all ages. 

Central Park Zoo

When you don’t have the chance to journey to all corners of the world in search of exotic wildlife, Central Park Zoo offers the next best thing. Nestled in the heart of Central Park, this zoo is divided into climate zones and their respective inhabitants. The Tisch Children's Zoo is a toddler-friendly petting zoo focusing on farm animals. If your party wants a bit more excitement, head to the 4-D Theater. 

Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

If you and/or your little ones are fascinated by technology, engineering and space exploration, there’s no better place to visit than the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. The USS Intrepid is a ship turned world-class museum featuring exhibits, flight and G-forces simulators and a cool experience that shows you what it’s like to be inside a submarine. During summer evenings, the deck becomes a unique outdoor cinema!

National Geographic Encounter Ocean Odyssey

When you want nature and futuristic entertainment in one place, go to the National Geographic Encounter Ocean Odyssey. This attraction simulates a journey through the ocean, a place that is more mysterious to us than the moon! The technology and details behind it are simply extraordinary. 

One World Observatory

The One World Observatory is a relatively new attraction that has been wowing visitors since day one. The 100th, 101st and 102nd floors offer stunning observation points, while the bottom floor is home to the Foundations exhibition, where you can see what New York’s bedrock looks like. Some of its most popular attractions are the high-speed SkyPod elevator and the Forever Theater, both boasting state-of-the-art technology. 

The Gazillion Bubble Show

If you want to impress and entertain every member of your family, from the youngest to the oldest, then, get tickets to The Gazillion Bubble Show. By combining laser technology, superb showmanship and impossible bubble shapes, this show has amazed crowds from all over the world.
