Recently my family was deciding where to go for a fun summer vacation and New York City was on our list. It's no secret that NYC continues to be one of the most expensive places to visit, and we're always working within a tight budget. With its swanky restaurants, 5-star hotels, and high-end shopping, I wasn't too confident that we could spend a week there without shelling out a small fortune. But experiencing the craziness of Times Square and the history of the Statue of Liberty excited me. I was going to figure out a way for us to do it!
So I started doing some research into how to enjoy the Big Apple on a small budget, and I was surprised at what I found! There are tons of great activities and places to see in NYC that are free. Completely, 100%, no-strings-attached free. Like put-your-wallet-away-and-just-go-have-some-fun-in-the-big-city free! Unfortunately, going to a Yankees game will have to wait. And we won't be going up to the Empire State Building Observation Deck on this trip. But we will definitely be having loads of fun with these free things to do in the Big Apple! Read on and start planning your NYC trip on a budget!
The list of great free activities in the Big Apple could go on and on, but these are just some that we wanted to highlight to help make your getaway to New York memorable (and affordable!).
