Enjoy Breathtaking Views in a Sail around the NY Harbor this Fall!


coverOne of the best “New York Bucket List” items is cruising in the New York Harbor in a sail boat. Tagging your kids along can make it an even better experience! I recently sailed on the Clipper City Tall Ship, hosted by Mommy Poppins with my family and had a spectacular time enjoying the gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline and watching my kids have a blast on the ship. Here are photos of our sea adventure:

Here’s what the ship looks like, before the sails are up. It is a replica of a Civil War-era lumber-hauling schooner:


The kids loved getting tattoos and their activity booklets:

The ship has a cash bar, if you want to relax with a drink:
