There are plenty of fun things to do in NYC on the Fourth of July. One of the most obvious but cherished 4th of July traditions is the Macy's Fireworks Show. At this kid-friendly 4th of July event, the Manhattan skyline will be lit by thousands of exploding shells set off from six barges on the Hudson River. While you've no doubt seen the Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Show live on TV, you've probably never seen the show from the deck of a luxury cruising vessel. American Princess and Classic Harbor Line offer fabulous views of the Fourth of July fireworks show in NYC. Book early to ensure yourself a spot!

Exploring the Big Apple via bicycle is one of the best ways to get accustomed to the city. Being on a bike allows visitors to get up close and personal with all of the fantastic New York City attractions in a way that traveling via bus or car wouldn’t permit, and yet covers more ground than trekking through the city on foot would.

So it's getting close to Mother's Day and you still haven't bought your mother a gift. Don't panic: we're here to help. Take a look at this, our unofficial (and slightly unorthodox) guide to Mother's Day gifts and etiquette.

Things to Do on Mother's Day in NYC:

Cook her dinner. No doubt at some point or other you've benefited from one of your mother's homecooked meals. Now's the perfect opportunity to return the favor. Invite her to dinner at your place. Cook the dinner yourself. Give her a glass of wine. Reminisce. Direct the conversation towards your finest achievements. Say things like, "If I hadn't of had a mother like you, I wouldn't of turned out so awesome" and "It's because of you that I became a doctor."* Steer the conversation away from all mention of that time you shredded four rolls of toilet paper and smeared paint all over the walls.
