Summertime Ideas

August 06, 2018

Feeling the summertime blues? Of course not! The sun is shining, making New York City a playground for outdoor activities and events. 

Shakespeare in the Park

The wait is worth the experience. Spend the evening under the stars at Delacorte Theater in Central Park to catch Kwame Kwei-Armah and Shaina Taub’s musical adaptation of the Twelfth Night. Shows start at 8 pm, and performances run from July 17th to August 19th. 

Intrepid Museum Summer Movies Series 

Spice up your outdoor movie venue with outdoor summer screenings onboard the deck of the USS Intrepid. 

U.S. Open

Close out the summer in style. Watch as some of the most talented tennis players in the world compete. Watch out for celebrity sightings-- the event draws an A-list crowd. Expert tip, buy tickets for the nighttime matches to avoid hot summer temperatures.
