There's an unusual and free thing to do that may be fun if you are specifically going to be in the city on 22 November, in the afternoon and evening.

On 23 November, it is American Thanksgiving - and New York City has a huge parade that day, the "Macy's Thanksgiving Parade" (Macys is a department store that has sponsored the parade every year). The parade features lots of enormous balloons in the shapes of lots of cartoon and comic book characters: Charlie Brown, Spider Man, etc. The parade itself can be fun, but it can also be very crowded.

However - the organizers of the parade inflate all the balloons the day before, and a lot of families drop by to watch that instead. The crowds are much smaller, and you can come and go as you please. The balloons can be veiwed from 77st and 81st Streets, between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue, and they usually start inflating them at 3 in the afternoon, finishing up by 10 pm at night.

So that could be a fun thing to do before an early bedtime!

Hi Nathalie! If the weather isn’t too cold i suggest a day in Central park. There is the zoo, carousel, a “castle” and many great playgrounds for toddlers. If it’s too cold I can also suggest to go to the Disney Store in Times Square and the M&M store or at Rockerfellar Center you can visit the Lego Store.

The Museums are really great too, the Natural Museum of History, there is the Museum of Moving Image where they have a Muppets exhibit for now and of course The Children’s Museum. In Queens there is also the hall of science where they can do arts and craft.

Hope this helps!
