10+ Things to Do in New York When it Rains (Popular Indoor Activities)

Visiting NYC, but feeling bummed that rain is in the forecast? Don’t worry! There is a plethora of great indoor activities in New York to make for a full, enjoyable weather-proof itinerary on the day or days it rains during your vacation.

Primeiro, algumas dicas: quando estiver chovendo na cidade, você deve planejar seu itinerário com antecedência e tentar visitar as atrações por proximidade. Dessa forma, você não terá que gastar muito tempo fora de uma atração para outra.

Bring a sturdy umbrella and some rain-appropriate shoes. Because New York is an older city, many sidewalks will be prone to collecting puddles and you may find it difficult to navigate without waterproof shoes.

While you’re indoors, many museums and other attractions will offer a plastic bag for you to carry your umbrella in, too. Alternatively, you can check your umbrella and coat.

And finally, don’t forget that rainy day activities in a city like New York can often be just as fun, if not more so, than some of your traditional outdoor options.
