Bring the whole family for an afternoon of exploration in New York City’s famed Greenwich Village. Your friendly local guide will distribute teacher-designed activity sheets to all the kids to help keep them engaged with fun, history-themed games and challenges. Kids and grown-ups both will love a stop at the Magnolia Bakery for a taste of its famous cupcakes.
Burn off the sugar rush at Bleecker Street playground — a local family favorite and hangout for New York City’s celebrity parents. Follow your guide on an educational walking tour of neighborhood highlights including Jackson and Abingdon Squares, Our Lady of Pompeii Church and famed music venues like the Blue Note jazz club. No need to worry about bathroom breaks, as there will be a 15-minute stop midway through the tour.
Make your way to beautiful and iconic Washington Square Park, the heart of the neighborhood and a popular filming location for movies and TV shows. Parents can relax and take in the urban atmosphere while kids perform a short play about the park’s history. At the end of the 1.5-hour tour, your guide can point you in the right direction for continued exploration of Greenwich Village on your own.
