Celebrate Summer in NYC

A World of Enticing Attractions Within Reach

With outdoor festivals in full gear, summer art installations, concerts and rooftop bar specials, summer in NYC is full of opportunities to get out and enjoy the sunny weather with a full calendar of things to do around the city. When you stay at The Americana Inn, you'll enjoy a variety of enticing attractions within easy reach, including the unparalleled spectacle of Times Square, the best of Broadway shows and maybe a picnic or two at nearby Bryant Park.

Since it's one of our favorite seasons, we're proud to offer some tips on what we think are the best things to do in NYC in the summer. After all, there's no need to stay cooped up in your room. New York vacations were made for sunny days.

Some things you can do to enjoy your summer in New York City include:

  • See a movie in the great outdoors! From Central Park to Washington Square Park, there are many refreshing outdoor areas throughout the city screening some of your favorite films under the stars. 
  • The Met and MoMA aren't the only places to see art in New York City. While public-art projects pop up throughout the city year-round, summer is one of the seasons where you’re more likely to view more public art thanks to the warmer weather.
  • Chelsea is home to the 1.45 mile block of flowers in full bloom at The High Line. Go people watching or enjoy a unique vantage point for the city's impressive skyscrapers. Or take in the greenery all around you against the dazzling skyline of Manhattan.
  • Are you a fan of Shakespeare? Shakespeare in the Park (specifically, Central Park) is a must-see summer tradition in NYC, with performances that can include favorites like The Tempest and more. 
  • Central Park isn't only good for Shakespeare or epic picnics. Music fills the air at Central Park SummerStage, covering everything from classic New York hip-hop artists to hip indie-rock bands.
