The trees have blossomed and so have New York City’s events. Some of May’s most exciting happenings are outdoors so get inspired to leave the house and explore what Manhattan has to offer! Here are four fun things you should consider:

Visit Governors Island

Governors Island is now open for the season! Hop on the ferry from the Battery Maritime Building at 10 South Street in Downtown Manhattan or Pier 1 next to Brooklyn Bridge Park and see what all of the hype is about. From New York City’s largest slide, to grassy knolls across manmade hills, there’s something for everyone.

Cocktail Show

(The Imbible, 340 West 50th Street; May 12 – June 30)

Named an “Absolute must-do in NYC” by Thrillist, The Imbible showcases comedy, history, science and of course drinking by taking audiences on a musical journey as they learn about the history of cocktails and spirits. Each ticket includes three complimentary craft cocktails.

NY Harbor Oyster Classic 5K

(Governors Island National Monument; May 13, 8am – 10am)

Leave the craze of Lower Manhattan behind and head over to Governors Island for the NY Harbor Oyster Classic 5K. Run the island with unmatched views of New York City. There is a $35 registration fee to participate and runners must be on the ferry by 8am.

2017 Sunday Outdoor Fulton Stall Market

(South Street Seaport, 207A Front Street, Now until December 24)
