I can’t believe it’s already been 2 weeks since my mom, Leighton and I got back from NYC.  It was my third trip to NYC this year, but it was Leighton’s first.  I knew I was going to be super busy with New York Fashion Week on our trip (read about it here), but I wanted to make sure that I still got to spend some time with Leighton and that she had a fun and memorable trip too.

It’s definitely a different experience coming to NYC with a child, but LC was a trooper.  She got up at 4:00am with us to fly to NY and then stayed up late a couple nights to really take in the city.  = )  She is already asking when she gets to go back on an airplane again.  She loved traveling, and I’m so glad that with all the running around and craziness in that jam packed weekend, the one thing I didn’t have to stress or worry about was Leighton since she came along with me on the trip.  For anyone else visiting NYC soon, I wanted to share my top 5 best places to visit there if you’re traveling with a toddler, so here’s my family friendly NYC travel guide!
1.)  Central Park.  Trust me, the park isn’t just a park.  Some of my favorites for kids are  the Central Park Zoo and a boatride at The Loeb Boathouse.  You can also take a horse and carriage ride and bike ride which were Leighton’s favorites!
2.)  Bryant Park.  There are jugglers, pianists, games, a carousel and more!
3.)  Children’s Museum of the Arts.  They have so many fun art classes here, and they are perfect for kids of all ages.
4.)  The Staten Island Ferry.  It’s only a 5 mile ride, but you will get some of the best views of Manhattan!
5.)  Dylan’s Candy Bar.  I mean come on…they sell cookie dough.  Do we need another reason??  This place is as fun as whimsical as the food and desserts are good!
Have you been to NY yet?  Have you taken a child? What would be in YOUR family friendly NYC travel guide? Share your favorite places we have to visit there in NY next time we go!
