How to be a Tourist in Your Own Backyard

by & filed under Be Inspired, Family Time: New York, Great Ideas, Our Favorite Things.


We’re lucky to live so close to New York City. It’s a shame most of us don’t make the effort to enjoy it more often. How fun would it be to play tourist for the day? NYC has so many muse­ums, cafes and activ­i­ties for kids that a stay­ca­tion can be a great adven­ture in the city.

I found this great list of kid-​friendly places to go, tons of muse­ums to escape the win­ter cold, all set up as a daily itinerary.

Taylor Family Session

Here is HP’s Flashback Friday moment: yel­low fall leaves with the Taylor fam­ily at Pier A. I have always loved the vibrant, elec­tric foliage. It is a stun­ning sight that makes for a spe­cial back­drop to every por­trait. The Taylor fam­ily had per­fect weather to play out­side with the kid­dies for their session.
