Ever since the start of the Covid pandemic, social outings have become more complicated. Nonetheless, it still remains true that few places offer as much to do as New York City, so if you are looking to make the most out of your summer months before school comes back, here are some ideas for what you can do this summer.

  1. TWA hotel: You might never get access to a real time machine, but if you want the next best thing, visit the TWA hotel at JFK airport. You don’t have to book a room there to enjoy the attractions, which are designed to transport you back to the 60s and the world of TWA airlines at the time. You can go to a roller rink or do bumper cars, visit an exhibit about TWA, or just enjoy the atmosphere and see what it’s like to be there.

  2. Color Factory: The Color Factory is a vibrant, festive art simulation experience where you, essentially, are the art. Each exhibit offers interactive moments of play where you experience color in new ways. The flashing lights, eye-popping color, and party aesthetic make it a worthwhile experience this summer.

There are all-you-can-eat ice cream buffets, as well as ice cream history lessons and ice cream themed rooms and floors. There are ice cream games and even an ice cream pool. The entire overall exhibit is the definition of an ice cream paradise. he weekday price is $36 and the weekend price is $44. Children under 2 are free. This attraction is best for food-lovers and ice cream-lovers alike.

  4. The Museum of Modern Art is an educational institution and cultural hub of contemporary art. While it might be one of the more touristy places to go, there are always new exhibits worth visiting. There are many different art museums in NYC, but this one stands out. The museum hosts a robust collection of galleries to explore, presenting a diverse array of art including sculptures, film, photography, performance art, design, and other forms of media.
