Itinerary With Kids

New York City Van Tour

I highly recommend this 5.5-hour tour because we rode in a large van that had 180-degree windows so we could really see all the sights. And we hopped out from time to time to see some attractions, grab food, and take photos.

A few of the highlights included seeing the Empire State Building, getting treats at Ferrara Coffee Bar, seeing the 9/11 Memorial, checking out the Statue of Liberty Museum, and taking selfies with the Statue of Liberty.

color factory

This was such a cool place for kids! I’d call it an “Instagram Museum” because it was obviously set up for people to take photos of themselves in the different exhibit areas.

Sloomoo Institute

A few highlights included the slime slingshot, the slime walk, and adding to the epic slime wall. And of course, he had a blast making his own slime.

Museum of Illusions

This was a cool, but cramped, museum that is pretty fun for taking cool photos. I think there were 30+ exhibits between the two floors.

Harry Potter New York Store

The store is two-levels and it includes New York-specific products in addition to tons of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts merchandise.

summit one vanderbilt

Summit One Vanderbilt is the newest NYC observatory and it’s incredibly cool! The main themes are glass and mirrors.

brooklyn pizza walk

The tour was fascinating and we learned a lot about pizza and popped into places that I might not otherwise have known to go.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway

The show was EPIC and worth every penny. Plus, there were tons of other kids there and many of them were dressed up in Hogwarts robes.
