It is SO easy to spend all your money in one weekend in New York City, and that’s why sometimes it’s easier to just save and stay in. While yes, your No Fee apartment is the coolest place in town, there are a bunch of things you can get out and do, for ZERO dollars. (Now that’s what I call a deal). Finding them though, is not always so easy. So I’ve looked high and low for you for the best things to do that are totally F-R-E-E.

Check out Picnic Point on Governors Island: Grab your friends, a blanket, an awesome food selection from Zabars and catch the free ferry to Governors Island for an awesome afternoon! The free ferries from Manhattan are at 10am, 11am and 11:30 on Saturday and Sunday.

The River to River Festival: More than 10 downtown museums will open their doors on June 21st from 4-8pm, FO FREE.

Yoga On Sundays: Every Sunday at 9:30 Lululemon offers free yoga at Union Square. FREE mat, FREE instruction! Get your flex on!

Zip Lining, Bike Riding, Rock Climbing: Bring a helmet and a friend and enjoy heaps of excitement for NO COST AT ALL! Check out Summer Streets, when seven miles of road from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park along Park Ave are closed off on Saturday mornings in August.

If you’re looking to live in this awesome city we call home, check out some of No Fee Rental’s amazing apartments! They offer furnished, luxury, short-term or long term options that all include great amenities (like rooftop decks, hello summer fun!) and are in the BEST neighborhoods. Check out your options HERE.

Until next time!
