Greenwich Village Manhattan with all its interesting venues, museums, parks, restaurants, and shops is an excellent place for a family vacation. If you want to take your family to New York City but would rather stay in the boroughs, The Village is definitely a good option. If you want to stay in Greenwich Village, your best option is to check out vacation rentals.
Who doesn’t love going on vacation somewhere that still feels a little like home? Skip the impersonal hotel for a more personal vacation rental apartment or condo complete with a kitchen and living area for your family after a long day of wandering around town. Vacation rentals vary from about $1,000 to $2,000 a week for one bedroom apartments with one bathroom, but you can also rent apartments for just a month at a time.
Renting an apartment for a week is probably more cost effective than renting one for a night. Some of the vacation rentals cost over $400 a night! Before you rent an apartment, though, look at a bunch of different properties so that you can see which ones are best for what you need to do.
Before you vacation in Greenwich Village, don’t plan everything out. Instead, know where you’re going to stay, and then figure out a basic idea of what you want to see. The Village is so full of personality and vibrant life that you never know where the day is going to lead you. Before you start planning out your entire vacation, just wander through some of the streets of town. See what there is to see. Meet who there is to meet. Eat what there is to eat. You might be surprised at what you’ll find when you just start walking.
