Kid-friendly descriptions help you discover all kinds of cool things about some of the best NYC attractions:
• CENTRAL PARK: That’s a lot of grass to cut. Better get out the...camels??
• GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL: Can you solve the mystery of Platform 61? (It’s not on the maps…but it’s there!)
• BROOKLYN BRIDGE: What does this bridge have to do with calling large things “jumbo?”
• EMPIRE STATE BUILDING: This building has different colors shining on it almost every night--why?

• TIMES SQUARE: Wanna see your name up in lights? Yep, you can!

• 5TH AVENUE: The most-photographed attraction in all of NYC is something on this luxury street. What is it? Hint: It’s not a memorial or a statue.
• WALL STREET: Yes, there really once was a wall on this street! Why?
• 9/11 MEMORIAL: Near the Memorial, a new tribute is rising, and it’s now even taller than the Empire State Building.
Parents: Most kids’ “travel apps” are just games to keep kids occupied during trips. Our guides are different!
With our interactive travel guides, your elementary-aged kids will be more engaged and excited about your family vacation. Our apps give kids an opportunity to take the lead with suggesting sites and activities, and give them an opportunity to be the tour guides – filling you in on fun facts and details about your destination.
Written in a style that’s fun to read, your kids will love it!
