Spending a day in the city can drain your wallet if you’re not careful. There’s so much to do that’s worth laying down money for! It doesn’t have to be that way, though. New York’s full of awesome destinations where you don’t have to pay a dime. For example, you can visit the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, located at 1 Bowling Green, without shelling out a single cent! It’s a short half mile away from Seastreak’s docks at Pier 11, and it’s a terrific snapshot of the various peoples native to the Americas.
