New York City is one of America's most iconic cities and an amazing place to visit.
If you’re looking to plan a trip there this spring, you may be looking for some fun and memorable things to do to add to your itinerary.
No worries, we’ve got you covered!
Here are the top 7 off-the-beaten-path things to do in NYC this spring:
1. Enjoy A Drink At Harriett's Rooftop And Lounge
Enjoy a delicious drink alongside beautiful views of the New York skyline with a visit to Harriett’s Rooftop and Lounge.
Located in Brooklyn, this cocktail lounge offers a classy feel, gorgeous views, and a wide variety of mixed drinks – what more could one want?
2. Spend An Afternoon On Little Island
Little Island is a new, one-of-a-kind public park in New York City.
The park is on an artificial, man-made island and is home to a variety of things to do, from walking paths surrounded by gorgeous foliage to food carts.
It may be only a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, but it offers a fun way to step outside of the usual New York City atmosphere for a little bit.
Best of all, visiting the park is free, making this a great budget-friendly option as well.
3. Find Out What's Brewing At The Cauldron
Harriett’s Rooftop And Lounge isn’t the only unique bar in New York City!
The Cauldron is a memorable pop-up bar with a fun theme – everything from the decor to the drinks has a fantasy novel-inspired flair.
A few of their cocktails include “ectoplasm” shots and “Cauldron Summer Punch” (really a rum-based cocktail).
4. Take A Stroll At Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Here’s a great way to spend an afternoon!
The Brooklyn Botanic garden is home to gorgeous, lush plants, and visiting this spring is the perfect time to see them in full bloom.
This is a great way to get away from the city for a little bit without ever actually leaving it.
5. Explore Hall Des Lumieres
Hall Des Lumieres is an immersive art center in NYC that opened in the fall of 2022.
Home to some stunning, jaw-dropping exhibits consisting of projections, this sprawling former bank is also transformed into an artistic wonderland. Tickets are available online.
6. Make A Slime At The Sloomoo Institute
Here’s some fun for kids and adults alike!
The Sloomoo Institute, also known as the slime museum, is home to a variety of interactive and one-of-a-kind experiences revolving around the fun multi-colored slimes you may have seen in ASMR videos online.
A general admission ticket not only includes getting to play with a variety of fun slimes but also making your own customized slime to take home with you!
7. Take A Ride On The Sea Glass Carousel
Head over to Battery Park to enjoy this gorgeous attraction!
The Sea Glass Carousel offers a unique twist on the usual painted horses found prancing around on carousels – instead, it features stunning, ocean-inspired sculptures designed to look akin to the sea glass that can be found along beaches.
Tickets can be purchased in person.
