Family time can be the best time in the city that never sleeps, especially during the holidays!  From museums to shows, here are a few hot ticket (and culturally expansive) items to share with your little ones (read: fun things to do with kids)!

Alice in Wonderland Puppet Show

The Metropolitan Museum of Art houses more than just artwork – it’s also home to hundreds of mini events and shows each year. This weekend, a children friendly marionette puppet show caught our eye. Performed by the Salzburg Marionette Theatre, Alice in Wonderland comes to life with fantastical sets and props akin to the magic of Wonderland.

New York, NY

$30 children – $60 adults

NYC Transit Museum

A 12 year long tradition, the New York City Transit Museum Train Show in Grand Central Station pays homage to trains and NYC itself with a 34’ long display of miniature New York. The mini transportation’s ultimate destination is naturally the North Pole, but you and your kids can learn about all things locomotive with several fun and educational models.

Carnegie Hall Family Concert: The New York Pops, A Charlie Brown Christmas

It’s never too early to introduce your kids to the symphony and it’s totally painless when it’s something they’re already familiar with. Watch the New York Pops take on Charlie Brown’s classic music at the famed Carnegie Hall with special performances by the New York Theatre Ballet, sing-alongs and “special surprises”.

Interested in heading out a cultural adventure this season?  Instead of focusing on the traffic on the highway, why not focus on how cute your kids are aboard one of our boats?  Kick back, put your feet up and enjoy a hot cocoa – or a hot toddie!  Our fully stocked bars are just the ticket!


Sea you soon,
