NYC empties out in August, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of things to do in New York City with kids. In fact, the lull before back-to-school is anything but dull, and we’ve found tons of fun FREE activities in NYC for families. Our top picks for fun, free things to do this month include Broadway in Bryant Park, Summer Streets, which sets kids loose with awesome activities at rest stops along the way, and another Sprinkler Day scheduled at Asphalt Green,
Thursday, August 4, is the anniversary of the Great American Outdoors Act, which means the National Parks are all open for FREE. The South Street Seaport’s Eric Carle-themed Discovery Room is now FREE for all. You can catch some FREE magical puppetry and a riotous waterbomb battle on Little Island. And, Domino Park is a literal oasis for the Ultimate Beach Day Experience.
Finally, August ends “love all,” when Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day returns during US Open Fans Week. Did we mention that’s FREE, too?
So, put away your wallet and venture out for one of these fun, FREE things to do in NYC this month. Be sure to keep the Mommy Poppins Family Activity Calendar handy for new ideas and updates and consult our giant list of 100 FREE things to do this summer for even more picks.
