Few places offer as rich a history as New Rochelle, NY, and there’s nothing better than trading stories and sharing memories over wood fired pizza, courtesy of Patsy’s Pizzeria. But before you swap stories over a slice of pizza, there are plenty of fun things to do and see in this beautiful town.
With the holidays just around the corner, a good place to start is the New Rochelle Thanksgiving Parade. A lot of planning goes into the annual event, now in its 53rd year. If you’re in the area during the holidays, this is a treat you and your family won’t soon forget.
For those searching for family-friendly activities, the Museum of Arts and Culture is ideal for introducing a bit of culture into your children’s young lives. The exhibits rotate throughout the year and include subjects like the Montgomery, AL, bus boycott as well as the works of iconic artists such as Norman Rockwell. From the traditional favorites to more contemporary artistic displays, it’s a fun—yet educational—way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
But what about Saturday night? A huge 18-screen IMAX theatre complex was made with the little ones in mind. A classic carousel, large laser tag arena, and no shortage of arcade games are ideal for cutting loose on the property.
But if the kids are staying home, consider the Westchester Chamber Symphony concerts held on the Iona College campus. There’s something magical about listening to the haunting Mozart classics coming from the campus halls as you’re strolling after dark.
