Outdoor Fun in NYC

Outdoor Fun in NYC

If you’re a fan of beautiful blossoms, head to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for Sakura Matsuri, the attraction’s annual cherry blossom festival. The event will take place April 30 and May 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Now in its 35th year, festivities will include more than 60 events—from taiko drumming performances and martial arts demonstrations to cosplay and standup comedy.

If you want to take in Instagram-worthy views of Manhattan’s west side, opt for a leisurely walk on The High Line. The park, which rests on elevated railroad tracks, snakes from Midtown to the Meatpacking District. You can look at the beautiful posies peppered throughout the more-than-mile-long park, grab a bite to eat from food vendors or simply take a seat on one of the chaise lounges and people watch. The attraction’s spring season starts tomorrow with the free event Culture Shock. This lively party will include music, performances, poetry readings, food and curator-led tours of the park’s art exhibits.

Of course, you can always spend time in the city’s most famous attraction, Central Park. The green space boasts 843 acres of open-air fun. You can soak up the sun in Sheep Meadow, take a bike ride along the park’s winding paths, head uptown for a picnic at the Harlem Meer and more. During the warmer months, the park also plays host to concerts and the famous Shakespeare in the Park series, where fans can attend one of The Bard’s famous plays for free.
