Fun
My kids are 5 and 7 and they absolutely enjoyed the views and just looking at the water they have seats with tables so you are able to eat with them at the table and even catch up on some homework with them on the way home.

Scenic Views
From beginning to the end you enjoy a beautiful scenic route of Manhattan looking at the water is peaceful.
