Staying Local: Spring Break Around City

Best Spring Break Activities -Seek App

Spring Break has a well-earned reputation for an excess of bikinis and brewskis in warm climates- which is always fun – but here at Seek we are all about branching out and trying new things! That’s why we’ve put together this list of top Spring Break activities in New York City for those that can’t make it to the beach and want to stay sober enough to remember the experience!

Our top, local spring break activities by our Seek staffers are as follows:

1. Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

990 Washington Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11225

Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival Brooklyn - Seek App

The beautiful, pink flowery trees are some of the most glorious sights in New York City in the spring. Get a taste of Japanese culture at this lush cherry blossom wonderland, and check out the amazing origami demonstrations in the heart of Brooklyn. Come for the flowers, stay for the incredible cosplay fashion show.

2. Wildman Steve Brill Foraging Tours

Various pickup spots around the city

Wildman Steve Brill Foraging Tours - Seek App

Learn about the environment and get in touch with nature with Wildman Steve as your guide! For the eco-conscious reveler, take action when it comes to sustainability by studying foraging and all the bountiful nourishment straight from the earth. Remember to bring a container to collect natural, edible goodies along the way.

3. Circle Line Boat Tour

Pier 83, West 42nd Street

Circle Line - Seek App

Have you ever seen the NYC skyline from a boat? If not, take advantage of the warming weather and take to the sea (or the Hudson)! Their famous “Best of NYC Cruise” will show you all of NYC’s iconic landmarks and serves as the only sightseeing cruise that completely circles Manhattan.
