New York City

Want to plan a trip to the Big Apple and bring your little explorers along? While it may seem overwhelming to consider, we’ve compiled some tips to help make your planning a bit easier.

Summer is a great time to travel with families, especially in New York City, where we have so many outdoor places to visit and experience. It’s also a good time to find great packages and deals geared towards families, especially on summer weekends.

Location & Accessibility Is Key

One of the biggest things to think about when planning a great family vacation to New York is location and accessibility. It’s important that the hotel you choose is close enough to all the family-friendly sights you’ll want to explore — close by and those in other neighborhoods. You’ll also want to check with your Concierge to see if they have a list of accessible subway stations if you’re traveling with a stroller. If you and your family are staying at Loews Regency New York, allow our hotel car to take you anywhere within a 20-block radius or ask our doorman to hail you a cab — that is, if you’d prefer to not venture into New York’s famous public transportation system.

Popular Kid-Approved Places To Visit

Our award-winning Les Clef d’Or Concierge team has compiled a list of popular family-friendly sights in NYC to help kick-start your “must do” list. Additionally, they can help you get tickets at great prices and in advance, so you can skip the lines when you arrive and get right to exploring.

Central Park

Just two blocks from the hotels front door is New York City’s largest green space. Aside from 843 beautifully curated acres of flora and fauna, the park home to many kid-friendly activities within, including:
