1. Get Friendly With the Farm

Here in New York City, there are many farms with free to low cost admission. Take the whole family and enjoy a day with the animals that oink, moo, and cock-a-doodle do.

You all can learn to milk a cow, feed some chickens, and play with the farm animals and their young. Some farms even have a wine and gift shop where each of you can take home a little something for yourselves.

2. Go For a Ride

If you haven’t gone already, take a day off and enjoy a fun-filled day at an amusement park. Depending on the age of your kids, choose wisely to ensure there are festivities and fun options for everyone to enjoy. A food good  all-ages parks are Cedar Pointe, Six Flags and Disney.

Load up the van and play away.

3. Play With the Fishes

Everyone can enjoy the beautiful sight of clear blue water and unique creatures of the sea. Head over to the aquarium with your baby, your kids, and some friends for a relaxing day out. This trip can also serve as a edu-tainment (education and entertainment) learn new species of fish, let the kids pick their favorite and surprise them later with a cool poster of their fav fish friend.

4. Go For a Dip

If you love the water as much as we do, and you know there won’t be as many chances to dive in during the fall, do it now.

Whether you have a friend with a pool or you’re headed to the public beach or pool, do it in style. Bring your beach chair, some safety toys, your picnic basket, and a few cold drinks to spend the day basking in the sun with your little ones.

5. Get the Family Jamming

Go to an outdoor concert, festival or fair. Around here, there is always some amazing activity going on. There are free family day festivals in the park, great events like Arthur Ashe Kids Day in the U.S. Tennis Center, street fairs, day concerts and more.
