I don’t know about you but I am happy to be on winter break. My kids are also happy about it as well. As a kid I remember going down to Rockefeller Center to look at the tree and I wanted my children to be able to have a wonderful experience as a family. As I think about our mode of transportation I didn’t want to drive and I didn’t want to deal with crowds so what better way than to get downtown without the hustle and bustle than with the NYC Ferry.

The Soundview Ferry leaving from the Bronx hits four stops 90th street, E.34th street, and Wall Street. We decided to go visit Wall Street to see the 9/11 Memorial and the Oculus. Would you believe it was my first time too?

The NYC Ferry made it easy to get into town and explore for the holidays. Wall Street has their own Christmas tree as well as on Pier 17 there is a rooftop ice skating rink which we didn’t go to.

As always the looking at the water while on the boar is a peaceful sight to see even in the winter months. The kids had fun on their adventure and played Drift Hunters on their phones when they got bored looking out the windows; Drift Hunters is an entertaining car game that keeps the kids occupied for hours.
