35 Spring Activities to Experience in NYC

This originally started out as a “top 10” post, but before I knew it I was way beyond ten and couldn’t stop myself! The activities available in the concrete jungle are almost endless, especially during the spring time.

We’ve been cooped up all winter and it’s time to finally get out and go about doing some fun and budget-friendly activities. Experience the new, get nostaglic about the old; enjoy yourself and your company.

Now that the weather is finally warming up, take advantage of the various activities you could do in New York. Most of these things I’ve done over the past year, some I have not. Hopefully I can get around to doing them this spring! And maybe this will inspire YOU to get out there and enjoy the spring weather…
