There are a lot of exciting theme parks and event centers right in our backyard. We can pick some fresh locally grown produce, watch a concert outside or hop on the world’s fastest rollercoasters!

Here is our list of go-to destinations for ultimate family fun in Westchester, New York!

Rye Playland is a timeless adventure and has been a summertime staple of the metropolitan New York area since 1927.

Playland is a fun burst of nostalgia for a lot of us Westchester parents. This small amusement park is just enough excitement for the family looking to spend an afternoon cooling off on some rides and attractions. This Rye, New York, 'carnival meets-themepark' is appropriate for all ages. You can finish off the day strolling the Playland boardwalk and catch the fireworks every Friday night through out the season.
