Summer’s usually the highlight of every kid’s year. But now adults can get in on the fun. “Work hard, play hard” is New York’s unofficial motto – and here are five ways to celebrate the Big Apple, from the soaring songs of a Broadway musical to cruising down the Hudson River.

Best of NYC – Circle Line Sightseeing
See the city from the comfort of a sightseeing boat that’s lined with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. You’ll cruise by Yankee Stadium, One World Trade Center and the George Washington Bridge. Have your camera ready for a spectacular close-up of the Statue of the Liberty. In the span of just 2.5 hours, you’ll see more than 100 exciting landmarks of New York City.

School of Rock
Are you ready to rock? Join wannabe rock star and substitute teacher Dewey Finn as he and his class of misfits enter a Battle of the Bands contest. Based on the film starring comedic superstar Jack Black, School of Rock invites you to sing along to the head-banging soundtrack by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber.

New York Yankees
Play ball! Don’t miss the chance to see the most famous baseball team on the planet take the field at Yankee Stadium. Winner of 27 World Series championships, the Yankees are an icon of New York. In between innings, grab a tasty ballpark snack and tour the Great Hall to learn the story of the fabled Bronx Bombers.

2-Hour NYC Bike Tour with Photo Shoot
Cruise through Central Park as you explore famous landmarks like Bethesda Fountain and Strawberry Fields with the help of an expert tour guide. A personal photographer will also accompany your group to capture your Central Park memories. Best of all: A set of professional images will be waiting for you three to six days after the tour.

A Bronx Tale: The Musical
Get ready for a heartwarming story about life and love in NYC set to a toe-tapping soundtrack. A Bronx Tale follows the life of an Italian-American teenager in the 1960s as he chooses between his family or the mob. Directed by Hollywood legend Robert DeNiro, this musical is one of the hot shows of the summer.
