Summer nights in New York City are filled with fun!

Whether you're local or looking to plan a getaway weekend, here are our favorite last-minute ideas for summer fun in NYC that won't break the bank: 

  • Manhattan Museum Mile is offering free open door access to nine of New York's best known museums.
  • While you're in the Big Apple, take advantage of Jade Hotel's Heart of NYC Package. It includes full hotel room accommodations, two tickets to The Whitney (an exquisite art museum recently moved to a fresh new building) as well as a hard copy of the best selling book, based off the viral photogrpahy social media page, Humans of New York.
  • We love the Jazz Age Lawn Party, an annual festival that brings both local jazz music lovers and visting history buffs together. Check their site for varying pricing, but (as if you need any more convincing) this ultra affordable event is the perfect excuse to swing dance those summer cocktail calories off! 
  • In Midtown, we like the deals at the Sofitel hotel. The hotel's neighborhood is central to everything, plus it is currently offering low room rates and great packages.
