We all know that New York is the city that never sleeps, but what does it have to offer besides nightlife? Sometimes we feel the need to spend some time with the family in a place that’s just as entertaining for adults as it is for the kids. Well, New York has no shortage of these places, and many of them are just a quick train ride away!
If you’re interested in a more calm experience in Coney Island, you can always visit the beautiful sea animals at The New York Aquarium. There’s the Aquatheater where the family can see sea lions do amazing tricks with their trainers, and the conservation hall where you can get an up close and personal view of marine life. They also have feedings for some of the animals, and for Halloween, there will be musical and theater performances, plus plenty of other kid-friendly activities.
