The New York City area is filled with fun things to do all spring and summer long. While there are a few amusement parks around the city, there are many others that are a short road trip away and worth the short drive. Most amusement parks have something for everyone no matter the age so pack your family up and enjoy a day or extend the road trip for the weekend.
