April showers bring May flowers.

What to do in Warm Weather in NYC?

In the United States we have a saying, “April showers bring May flowers.”

We have been stuck inside for the winter, but now it’s May! Are you ready to go outside to see the flowers? 

In May, many New Yorkers are so excited to finally go outside and enjoy themselves.

Here are some fun ideas to have fun and enjoy outdoor activities in New York City as it gets warmer.

Grab a CitiBike (or your own bike) and ride along the Westside Highway.

It is a great way to see the city and to get some exercise!

Go see a movie in the park! 

There are so many parks in New York City. Get a large blanket, some snacks, and your best friends and find a spot on the grass. Enjoy a movie on a big screen in the park.

Find a park near your home or school. 


Finally, visit a botanical garden! 

Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island each have big beautiful gardens filled with flowers that bloom in May. Visiting a botanical garden can be an exciting and fun time for a family, a date, or alone.
