Many many moons ago (10 years ago to be exact) me and James visited New York City. It was one stop on a tour of the East Coast of America and it was an incredible trip that we’ll never forget. It’s something I would absolutely love to do again but with the children this time.
So when TravelPlanners reached out to me to see if I would like to share my dream New York itinerary, I of course said yes. It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while now. I love travel, so this post is a great way for me to start planning a trip.
Before I jump into my New York itinerary, I thought I would share a few photos from our trip to New York all those years ago. Of course they are grainy and really bad quality but that’s just how photos were back then, isn’t it? I would absolutely love to go back there now with my camera and take so many photos, I would be in my element…

On to our itinerary…
Statue of Liberty
No trip to New York would be complete without a trip to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Especially with the kids as I know the first thing that comes to mind when they think of New York is the Statue of Liberty. I know that they would love the boat ride over to the island and the views of New York, as well as the museum on Ellis Island.
A trip to New York would be very full on and as much as we would want to fit lots in to our time there, I know that the kids would need time to rest too. Central Park would be perfect for this. A picnic and some time to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city would be just what we need.
Empire State Building
We did the Empire State building the last time we went to New York and it was one of the best things we did. The views are absolutely incredible and I know the kids would love it. I think they would really enjoy going 102 floors up into the sky, little thrill seekers!
Time Square at night would be brilliant for the children (and me!), but I’d also like to take them to M&M’s World and the Disney Store which are both in the Time Square area.
See a Broadway show
The last time we visited New York we went to see Shrek and it was fantastic, the kids would have loved it! We would definitely take them to see a show if there was something suitable on at the time. Because, did you even go to New York if you didn’t see a Broadway show?!
I’ve never been to the Brooklyn Bridge but it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. A stroll or a bike ride along it with the children would be perfect. Taking in the views and teaching them about the history of the bridge, I think that this would be a great activity for them.
Museum of Natural History
There are lots of museums around New York that I know the kids would love but I think our priority would have to be the Museum of Natural History. I would also like to take them to the Ground Zero Museum and Brooklyn Children’s Museum which I’ve heard a lot of good things about.
