July Family Fun from Your New York City Timeshare

When you think of a vacation to New York City, you undoubtedly think of the glitz and glamour of a big, exciting city. But you may also realize that hotels are very expensive there, especially if you want to be in the heart of the action - Manhattan. However, there are many wonderful New York City timeshares for rent right in downtown Manhattan that are surprisingly easy on the budget, and a great way for you to afford to take the entire family - and see all of the fun things that are happening in NYC in July, 2010.

Here is a list of several fun things to do this July for budget-minded family fun, based on picks by Kate Appleton, of Budget Travel Magazine.
  1. Coney Island is now known as Luna Park, but it's the same fun, old-fashioned-feeling amusement park, complete with its 83-year old roller coaster, Cyclone (see photo). However, 19 new rides opened here this summer, so you'll have plenty of modern marvels from which to choose.

  2. Classic summer night baseball is also available out at Coney Island. Here the minor-league Brooklyn Cyclones take on rivals, and if you attend on the right nights you'll also get treated to some great fireworks. Fireworks at the stadium are on Saturdays, (July 3, 10, 31) and also are along the boardwalk on Fridays (July 9, 16, 23).

  3. Free concerts are being hosted by the Metropolitan Opera beginning at the SummerStage in Central Park on July 12. Additional venues are July 15 at the Bronx's Crotona Park, July 20 at the brand-new Brooklyn Bridge Park, July 22 at Staten Island's Tappen Park, July 27 at Queens Bridge Park, and July 29 at Manhattan's Jackie Robinson Park. Pack a picnic, and be sure to show up early to claim your spot at these very popular summer events.

  4. Head to Bryant Park on Thursdays at 12:30pm for the extraordinary opportunity to see some of Broadway's top actors, from its top shows, perform on the lawn's center stage. This July will feature stars from "Wicked," "South Pacific," and other award-winning Broadway shows.

  5. For something different plan to attend "Bastille Day on 60th Street" on July 11, when the French Institute throws a three block party to celebrate French Independence Day. You'll see mimes, accordion players and cancan dancers, and have a chance to indulge in French cuisine. Kid-friendly activities are also available such as p├ętanque (lawn bowling).

  6. Take a break from your timeshare kitchenette meals, and check out "Fine dining for Less" during Restaurant Week, July 12-16 and July 19-23, plus Sundays at selected restaurants. Three-course, prix-fixe meals are available at discounted prices for lunch and dinner at about 275 restaurants.
