Things To Do In New York In The Spring


Let's face it: spring in New York won't be a warm one this year. We're already nearing the end of March and there is still some snow on the ground. 

Recently my in laws visited for a weekend. We had just experienced a snow storm and were forced to find more indoor activities. Luckily New York is filled with indoor options - from museums to Broadway shows. 

Here are my favorite things to do in spring:

Broadway Shows: You can't go wrong with a Broadway hit. We usually buy our tickets discounted on TodayTix. Joe and I also recently saw the off Broadway show: In & Of Itself [kind of a magic show but so much more]. It was incredible! They sell rush tickets every day at 6PM for $30 cash/ticket. 

One World Observatory: For an incredible view of the city, check out the One World Observatory. You can stay warm while seeing the city. I've also heard amazing things about the 9/11 museum downstairs.

Museums: My favorites are the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met), American Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa). 

Comedy & Improv Shows: Comedy Shows are always a fun option. We took my in laws to the Comedy Cellar. We also really like Caroline's On Broadway. For a more budget-friendly option, try an improv show at UCB (Amy Poehler's club!). 

Botanical Gardens: Both botanical gardens have beautiful flowers in the spring. The New York Botanical Garden [Bronx] has their indoor orchid show. The Brooklyn Botanical Garden has cherry blossoms at the end of April. 

Neighborhood Walks: Walking around always warms me up; just remember to bring a jacket. I love exploring new neighborhoods and getting some Instagram photos. My favorite neighborhoods to wonder around are the Upper East Side [my old home!], Greenwich Village, and Brooklyn Heights [also the Brooklyn Bridge]. I always make sure to get some stoop photos and visit cute coffee shops for warm up.

What are your favorite spring activities in New York?
