There’s never a shortage of things to do in New York City… and this weekend is no exception! From fun parades to flea markets to taking a relaxing stroll along one of the city’s most celebrated parks, New York City offers plenty to see and do. Whether you’re looking for food, fun, relaxation or anything else in between, there’s always something for everyone. Here’s a quick look at just a few of them to consider.

German-American Steuben Parade

One of the city’s best events every autumn, the popular German-American Steuben Parade honors New York’s rich history of immigration from Germany and celebrates German culture. Named after General Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, who helped win the Revolutionary War, the parade is always worth checking out!

LIC Flea & Food

Queens’ version of the Brooklyn Flea, the LIC Flea and Food event is a great place to sample delicious food and hunt for great deals. Check it out in Long Island City this weekend!


Hungry? Head over to Williamsburg to find a diverse array of nearly 100 vendors selling all different kinds of great food. Fun for the whole family, Smorgasburg is always a blast – especially for all you foodies out there!

Take a Walk Along the High Line

With cooler weather ahead and the summer crowds finally dying down a bit, there’s no better time to head over to the famed High Line for a relaxing stroll. Take in the picturesque views of the city’s iconic skyline and the Hudson River as you wind your way up the Far West Side of Manhattan. The northern end of the High Line offers the perfect place to catch a glimpse of the mammoth Hudson Yards development, the future home of shops, restaurants, cultural events, the city’s highest outdoor observation deck and an interactive sculpture called the “Vessel,” revealed with great fanfare earlier this week.
