I love to plan family travel adventures with our four kids. Encouraging time in nature, National Parks travel, backpacking and hiking are my passions and I love to write about them.
One more tip from a native New Yorker. Most people don’t realize it, but admissions to many of our museums (The MET and Museum of Natural History included) are a suggested admission. Since we usually only stay at the museum for less than 2 hours, we never pay the suggested price. We pay what we can afford. At suggested admission prices up to $32 per person, this is a significant savings for a family of 5.
Thanks for the info Joanne!
Thanks for this info – starting to plan our trip to New York from Australia!
Have a great trip!
What great tips! I’ve always thought of NYC as being an expensive city for traveling, but you make it sound totally accessible for families on a budget. Also, I’d never heard of a Pod Hotel before. Such a cool, minimalist concept!
I was happily surprised with how affordable it was for our family! And I agree- the pod hotels look super cool. 🙂 Happy Travels!
We hope to make it to New York City some day, so I pinned this post to save all of your excellent tips. I’m glad to see a campground recommendation, since we usually travel with our little travel trailer.
Thanks Kerri! I think your travel trailer will be perfect for Croton Point Park. I just read your post about your 25 day trip.It looks absolutely fantastic! What a great adventure. Can’t wait to read about your next one. 🙂
