Winter in New York City will soon be a memory, and the cold, blustery days will turn mild.  It’s true that there is never a bad time to visit the city, and visitors always find plenty of Things to do in NY, but when you stay at our NYC Hotel during the spring you will have pleasant weather on your side, so you can enjoy both indoor and outdoor New York Attractions. Here are some of the top Things to do in NY this spring.

See a Broadway Show
Stroll down the Great White Way on your way to see one of this year’s top Broadway shows. Seeing a Broadway hit is a popular Thing to do in NY no matter the season, and during the spring you can enjoy a walk through Times Square amidst the crowds and the lights on your way to the theatre. Some of the current hits are Phantom of the Opera, Newsies, Jersey Boys, The Lion King and Kinky Boots.

Explore Central Park
Central Park is beautiful in the winter, spring, summer or fall. During the spring, the flowers in the gardens will start to bloom and you can enjoy the lovely spring weather by taking a picnic to the park (or even having a picnic delivered!), walking amongst the Park’s 25,000 trees or hopping in a pedicab for an effortless way to enjoy the scenery.

At the Loeb Boathouse, you can rent a rowboat or pay homage to Venice by taking a gondola ride around one of the manmade lakes.

Visit the historic carousel and watch as the kids take a spin, or head to the Central Park Zoo where even the animals are surely enjoying the spring thaw.

Participate in a Walking Tour
Many top New York Attractions can be seen during a walking tour. While some Tours are self-guided, it’s always fun to take a guided tour. Your knowledgeable tour guide will be able to point out the most popular Attractions and answer any questions you may have. Some of the companies that offer walking tours are Big Onion City Walking Tours, Food of New York, New York Walking Tours and Ghosts of New York.

Spend an Afternoon at a Museum
The many world-class Museums are popular New York Attractions. Walk along Museum Mile or explore some of the most popular of the city’s Museums such as the American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum and the Jewish Museum.

Drive into the River
Well, you won’t be driving…your Duck Boat Captain will! The Duck Boats are amphibious landing vehicles that will take you on a Tour of the streets of New York City and then make splashdown into the river where you’ll enjoy lovely views from the water.

Enjoy Dinner Out
What better place to enjoy dining out than in New York City? There are so many options that you never have to eat in the same place twice! Try some of New York’s most popular Restaurants such as Per Se, Tao, Junior’s, Nobu, BLT Fish, Quality Meats and Carmine’s. You can also ask your Park Lane Hotel Concierge for more suggestions.

Revisit History
New York City has a rich history, and exploring that history is a popular Thing to do in NY. You can head to Ellis Island to learn about the 14 million people who passed through there as they entered the country, or climb to the Statue of Liberty’s crown for an amazing view of the Harbor and the city. Another option is to visit the Lower East Side Tenement Museum where you will find costumed interpreters who will help you get a clear picture of what life was like for the immigrants who lived in the tenements.
