It's a Mad, Mad Weekend for April Fool's in New York City

March 17, 2016

While the guys are glued to the couch watching the end of March Madness, it's time to head to the Big Apple! Kick the weekend off on Friday with the 31st Annual April Fool's Day Parade! Outrageous floats and colorful costumes mirror the folly of the past year's nuttiest politicians, corporate leaders, celebrities and whoever else has made a total fool of themselves. The weekend can be spent on a fool's errand exploring Central Park, Harlem, Times Square, Brooklyn, Hunts and The Boogie Down Bronx. Relish the silliness of the city and heed these tips to make it a memorable and cheap weekend - no fooling!

Discover Central Park - and the "other" New York - Harlem and the Boogie Down Bronx. There is no better place to celebrate Spring than Central Park. It's the perfect time to go it alone and explore the park's 843 acres and 47 miles of maintained paths on foot or by bike. Go it alone or join a fantastic bike, pedicab or walking tour an relive the magic of the hundreds of TV and movie sites and history that have made this park a classic. Do something the kids will love and discover part of New York that not many see - Harlem, the Bronx, Hunts Point and Brooklyn. Actors, artists and celebrities lead fascinating walking and bus tours that focus on Hip Hop music, dance, graffiti, street art and TV hits like Gossip Girls, Sex and the City, and the Sopranos.

Times Square offers a treasure trove of attractions and exhibits the whole family with love. From Star Wars, The Vikings, SNL King Tut and the Intrepid to a fun meal at Planet Hollywood. And for a limited time only all SIX James Bonds are in one place, exclusively at Madame Tussauds - see how you measure up to each 007! Statue of Liberty cruises are always a hit with kids, but New York also offers architecture tours aboard an elegant 1920s style yacht. Our "Editors Pick" is the Hop-on hop-off with 4 stops at piers just outside Times Square, World Financial Center, South Street Seaport and Brooklyn to explore, then hop back on and cruise to the Statue of Liberty.
