The Best Free Things to Do in New York City


Planning a visit to New York generally comes with a bit of financial stress—that is, unless you know where to look. Contrary to popular belief, the Big Apple is brimming with fun, free activities that won’t cost you a thing (and thus, promise to leave you with a larger budget for restaurants, bars, and cozy boutique hotel stays). Craving a breath of fresh air? Head to one of the Upper East Sides’ most beautiful, locally-frequented parks for pristine river views and perfect hidden corners for picnicking—or cross into the borough of Queens for an even more off-the-beaten-path outdoor experience. Looking to check out what’s new in the art world? Hit this downtown neighborhood to peruse the latest galleries, which also promise far less crowds than the city’s popular museums.

Whether scoping out the latest art exhibits or soaking up some sun by the ocean are more your thing, New York’s got a free-of-charge activity for every type of traveler out there. Curious? We’ve rounded up the best gratis activities that the city has to offer, here.
