Things to do in new york
1. Cool off in one of New York’s Public Swimming Pools

For visitors in New York during the summer, there is a perfect way to cool off after all that time doing touristy things in the city; its public swimming pools. There are currently over 60 public swimming pools dotted around New York and most of them are free, which means that wherever you find yourself needing a relaxing day cooling down in New York you’re never far from a swimming pool. Highlights include the Olympic size lines at the Astoria Pool, the floating pool in the Bronx, and many more.

2. Ice Cream at Ample Hills Creamery

Ice cream at the artisanal Ample Hills Creamery is not only for the sweet toothed; with a rotating menu of 24 flavours that includes everything from popular favourites to more adventurous creations, you’ll be able to find a flavour to enjoy. Ample hills ice-cream is made from quality ingredients including cage-free eggs, cane sugar, and Battenkill Valley Creamery milk for a treat that can be enjoyed out in the New York sun or while sitting at the creamery’s L-shaped marble counter.

3. Catch a Free SummerStage Performance

There are many concerts, festivals and matches that one can see when in New York during the summer, and one of the best of these is the city’s biggest performing arts festival. SummerStage offers musical performances from a variety of genres and even comedy, all for free across over a dozen of New York parks. For travellers that like to bag themselves deals such as cheap business flights to New York, the number and variety of performances at the festival make it a great way to enjoy summer in New York on a budget.

4. Relax on Hudson River Park

The Hudson River Park at Pier 45 is a popular sunbathing spot and is the perfect place to catch some sun and breathtaking views across the river, as well as a variety of events held there. With amenities such as seating areas, lush green lawns and shade structures this is also one of the best places to catch some of New York’s upcoming musicians with live music on Friday nights and other special events.

There is no doubt that New York is a special destination for most visitors, and the famed city always has lots to offer in the hot summer months. The four suggestions above are a great way to experience the big apple in the summer months but are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things to see and do, as a visit here is never dull!
