Summer is here, as indicated by the sweltering heat that seems to be inescapable within the city limits. Along with high temperatures comes much to do in the greatest city in the world. For those who live in or near NYC you should never utter the words “I am bored”, especially after reading this article! Below we have a snapshot of 101 things to do in the 5 boros this year. Enjoy.

Alphabet City Beer Co.

A homey and dark bar in the East Village has incredible beers on tap as well as in a bottle cooler for patrons to drink on site or at home. There are board games for the bar dwellers, but if you are looking for more of a view, every summer they schedule a tour on a Ventura yacht equipped with beer, food and views of NYC from the water.

The Museum of Natural History

Made even more famous than it already was, the setting of “Night at the Museum” is a portal to the past as well as the present. Home to historical figures and species, as well as giants of the sea and the african plains, this attraction will have you leaving filled with new knowledge about something, I promise.

The Bronx Zoo

Head north to the Bronx to see over 6,000 species near one of the most urban areas in the continent. A great way to connect with some wildlife that might be absent in your daily urban life, The Bronx Zoo is near and dear to this blogger’s heart. Tip: Wednesdays are “pay what you wish” days so I would recommend taking a mid week trip!

Chelsea Piers Field House

Rainy day? Never fear, the Piers are here. 80,000 square feet of fun includes foam pits, trampolines, rock climbing, a golf driving range, and other fun activities!

Comedy Cellar

Ever catch a minute or two of Louis C.K.’s tv show? You are likely to have seen him performing stand up or talking to someone outside of the Comedy Cellar in Greenwich Village. This place has been frequented by some of the funniest people in the business like Louis, Jerry Seinfeld, Judd Apatow, etc.
