As it turns out, there are so many things to do in New York City with teens, it can kind of get overwhelming trying to narrow down what to do.

This is not one of those overwhelming lists of 101 things to do in NYC with teens, but a highly curated list based upon the real-life experience of our family, and why our older kids liked them.

What to do in New York City with Teens?

Here are our favourite teen-friendly attractions in NYC and a few hidden gems for those families who like to discover something new.

Take a Walking Tour of Greenwich Village (with Cupcakes)

While it’s known as a cupcake tour, I was relieved it wasn’t too heavy on the cupcakes – that would have been a burden too hard to carry. And really, I only needed one.

Bike Around Central Park

There are plenty of points of interest in Central Park to stop and enjoy like the Mall, Bethesda Fountain, Strawberry Fields, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is why it’s one of the best parks in NYC.

Visit the MET: Metropolitan Museum of Art

As teens grow a more cultured personality, a visit to the MET is sure to grant their limited attention.

Visit MOMA: The Museum of Modern Art

In keeping with great art galleries for teens in NYC, I highly suggest MOMA: the Museum of Modern Art, located in Midtown Manhattan.

The views of Central Park here are wide open and beautiful – especially in the morning when the sun is shining on them.
