  4. Ferry Rides. Staten Island ferry, governor's Island, and now the IKEA ferry to Brooklyn.

  6. Tour of NYC - use your unlimited ride metrocard and take a Bus route you don't normally take!
  7. Visit The Airport - use your Metrocard to take Subway/Bus to visit the airport! Both Laguardia and JFK can be reached via an MTA bus. Kids love this!
  8. Go window shopping! Leave your credit card and cash at home and just window shop! Walk down 5th Ave., visit IKEA via th ferry ride, there are thousands of interesting shops to check out in NYC.
  9. Walk! Not only is this a great way to excercise, it is a great way to bond with friends and family. Take a walk together and talk along the way, hours later you'll wonder where the time went and you might drop a pound.
