4 Exciting New Things to Do in NYC

Whether you were born and raised in the Big Apple, recently relocated, or you are planning a weekend getaway to New York City, everyone can benefit from finding unique and exciting things to do in the city. If you have already exhausted the excitement of typical New York attractions, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square or the Empire State Building, read on to learn about the new things to try in NYC.

Learn Trapeze

Learning a new skill or taking up a new hobby is always exciting, suspending yourself high up in the air while swinging on a trapeze adds a new layer of trepidation to learning something new. If you are a true thrill seeker and have always wished you could swing from soaring heights, the New York Trapeze school may be the perfect place for you to test your courage. Become an expert at flying through the air with ease and grace, classes include Balancing and Acrobatics, Lyra, Static Trapeze, Silks and Flying Trapeze.

Sail the Hudson

You have seen New York from the pavement, and experienced the sights on foot, now see all of the sights from a different vantage point, the Hudson River. Sailboat tours along the Hudson are offered from intimate private charters to larger group tours for a range of different prices by Classic Harbor Line. If you are already a sailor, or have recently considered taking it up, a personal and private cruise along one of America's most-famous waterways may be up your alley. Before you head out on the water, be sure to check if a boating license is required and brush up on your boating knowledge.

Explore Secret Gardens

While NYC is typically known as a concrete jungle, there is much more than cement in some of the beautiful gardens hidden around the city. You can find an incredible 75-year-old garden oasis atop Rockefeller Center or visit the Ford Foundation's breathtaking garden and atrium to take in the beautiful greenery. Allowing time to enjoy the gardens while visiting such a bustling city can help to balance out the noise and activity around you. This way, you can take the time to relax, recharge and take in all the sights and sounds to their fullest.

Visit the Market

New York is full of markets to suit the desires, dietary needs and otherwise, of all types of people—from moms with a niche in the kitchen to foodies who crave culinary artistry, to high-level chefs creating the next big dish. There are plenty of farmer's markets that can be visited on any day of the week. Greenmarket Farmers urban markets allow for local growers and small scale farmers to set up and sell their produce, and Greenmarket offers 54 different locations across all of New York's boroughs. While at the market you can get a real feel for the underpinnings of the city and interact with people from all walks of life.

Plan your trip with an open mind and test out the road less traveled for a more authentic look at the city that never sleeps.
