Summer is a great time to be in New York City, but sometimes it can be difficult to stay on budget. Thankfully there are tons of cool things to check out this time of year.
If you’re a theatre fan, be sure to check out Shakespeare in the Park. These free performances have been going on for decades, and this year you can expect to see Much Ado About Nothing and Coriolanus at the Delacorte Theater.
Prefer movies instead? NYC Parks offers free movies every week throughout the city! There’s something for everyone with multiple movies running nearly every day. Take your friends and have a picnic.
Brave enough to explore Brooklyn? Head to Coney Island for fireworks! The rides aren’t free, but the view is, and so is the beach! Starting at 9:30 every Friday, there’s plenty of time to get back to your dorm before curfew.
If you’re really adventurous, you should check out the annual Mermaid Parade on June 22nd, also at Coney Island.
