New pop ups are always appearing and making new memories at places you’ve been and loved can be so fun, too. I’ve got the scoop on what to do this fall in NYC- the latest and greatest!

We all know and love the Blue Man Group and I just heard the best news– they’re back starting September 3rd! This is a great show to bring the whole family to, there’s so much music and laughter to be had. They are following all CDC guidelines and those 12+ will be required to show proof of vaccination at the venue. Tickets are flying off the shelves, so hurry and grab yours!
There is a ferris wheel in Times Square! I can hardly contain my excitement, it’s like a little bit of fair fun in the middle of the city! It goes 110 feet up into the air and gives you the most amazing views of all the lights and billboards. Tickets are available online and in person- $15 for ages 2-10, $20 for 11+ and $35 for VIP tickets where you get to skip the lines. It’s open now through September 12th from 12pm-11:59pm.
You have to check out this immersive installation at 25 Broadway!

Workout on Pier 17! Trooper Fitness, Lyons Den Power Yoga, Pure Barre NYC and HIIT The Deck all have classes running now through the end of September. The classes are free, you just need to reserve your spot online! What’s better than free workout classes with a view and motivation from your friends?!
Have you heard of brunch cruises? They’re the latest rage! Sight seeing mixed with mimosas and brunch, what could be better?! Cruises are 2.5 hours on both the Hudson and East Rivers, there’s a DJ and bottomless mimosas. They depart from Pier 16 in Chelsea and this is a great excuse to dress up with friends and spend a few hours on the water! The brunch cruises are every Sunday now through the end of September. You can also choose from different cruises they offer, such as dinner! Grab your tickets online!
Olfactory NYC is officially one of the coolest places! You can make your own perfume from scratch there! They have 9 fragrances you start with as the base and add in whichever scents you’d like to customize it for you. This is a great idea to do with friends or go and create a perfume as a gift for someone! They let you do private events or virtual ones, as well!

I love visiting NYC whenever I have the chance. I have done many of these things on your list but would love to do some that I haven’t on my next trip. Great post.

New York is such a vibrant city that would appeal to any type of traveler. It’s good to know that there are family-friendly activities, too.
Yes, there’s something for everyone here!
I envy that you can do all these in your area.. Unfortunately, covid cases are still growing in my area so we are still not allowed to do much especially in public places.. But hopefully things will get back to normal and we can do the same here.. I miss going to theaters and concerts
Hoping for better days soon!
What a lot of neat ideas! I haven’t been to any of these places, and it would be fun to do these with kids.
So happy to hear this!
