Nicholas Welsch Preciado loves traveling to explore major cities and gain new experiences. One of his favorite places to travel is New York City.
Summertime is one of the best times to find yourself wandering around NYC. New York winters get cold and there are so many outdoor activities that can be inhibited by the frosty weather. If you are planning to visit New York City during the summer, here are some of the top activities you should add to your itinerary.
Have Brunch at a Café With Outdoor Seating
Having brunch in NYC is a must, especially if you happen to be there on a Sunday. Dive into some Mimosas and top rated cuisine while people watching in one of the world’s most bustling cities. Check out The Butcher’s Daughter, Bar Primi or Dudley’s for the full experience.
Spend an Afternoon in Central Park
Great weather makes for an even greater day spent in Central Park. It’s a must see tourist attraction but really can be unpleasant if you’re visiting during the winter time. When the sun is beaming, pack a picnic and head into the park for a day spent wandering. People watching here is the best but if you want a little more activity, try walking the shady paths, finding the John Lennon memorial or scouting out some of the street artists for an impromptu performance.
Have Cocktails on a Rooftop Bar
The nightlife in New York is one of the best in the world and a trip there wouldn’t be complete without having a few drinks. Because of the incredible views, many bars around the city have opened up their rooftops as an extension of their establishment. Check out the swanky atmosphere at places like The Press Lounge, Cantina Rooftop and VU Rooftop Bar.
Shop at The Flea Markets
Shopping in NYC is a given but with the gorgeous summer weather, you can make it an outdoors event. Check out some of the flea markets around the city like Brooklyn Flea, LIC Flea and Food or Queens International Night Market for some tasty snacks and unique buys.
