Spring Break for NYC Kids: Best Things to Do During Easter and Passover Recess in March 2013
It's almost here! Monday, March 25 to Tuesday, April 2, New York City public school students are on spring break. You know what that means: Time to start planning memorable and enriching adventures for the whole family (unless of course you're sending the kids to a spring break camp).
If you're thinking of heading out of town for a last-minute vacation, you can find great nearby getaways in our NYC Family Day Trips Guide and more far-flung destinations and spring break deals on our Travel Site. But if a staycation is what you're after, there's plenty to keep you busy here in NYC. The American Museum of Natural History, the New York Hall of Science and the Brooklyn Children's Museum all have new interactive exhibits for kids, the New York International Auto Show is rolling into town and many family spots are hosting special programming during spring break. Plus, there's a ton of FREE fun, too, like Urban Park Rangers' nature activities, Splash Week swim time at citywide YMCAs, egg hunts and the annual Easter Parade, Macy's Flower Show and Nick Cave's awesome sounding Heard NY art performance in Grand Central Terminal.
And so much more! Read on for our favorite FREE or affordable family activities going on in New York City over spring break and remember to check our Event Calendar for additional options.
