The air still feels very cold outside, but it’s time to finalize your plans for spring break. Simple Van and Car Rental has vans available to rent so that you can go on an adventure into the city with your whole family or a group of friends. If you can’t travel to a warm beach, then you could at least go on some shorter day trips closer to home. Loving New York has compiled a list of things to do in New York this spring, and we will share five of them with you.
1. Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival
Cherry blossoms are fleetingly beautiful and are a favorite sign of spring for many. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden displays a bloom of cherry blossoms in April each year, and visitors come from all over the world to see them. While you are enjoying these blooms, you can visit the botanical garden as well.
2. Macy’s Flower ShowMacy’s is known for their iconic parade, but did you know that they have a flower show? Each year, Macy’s displays almost one million trees, plants, and flowers in a two-week-long show to celebrate the arrival of spring. The floral arrangements always follow a certain theme and people come from all over the world to see them.
3. Hamilton On BroadwayNo trip to New York City is complete without taking in a Broadway musical, and Hamilton is a favorite. But, there are many other options as well. There are several broadway theaters in New York, and you can check for any new releases coming in the spring.
4. Easter Parade & Bonnet Festival
In a tradition dating back to the 1870s, New Yorkers come out to parade in their most elaborate hats and bonnets on Easter. The city is embellished with 300 large Easter eggs while parade participants are walking along 5th Avenue in their best costumes.
5. Statue of Liberty MuseumYou can’t visit NYC without a trip to the Statue of Liberty Museum, especially if you have never been there. Seeing Lady Liberty is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and there are three interactive galleries that tell a story behind the history of the statue.
