New York Wheel, St. GeorgeMoving to a new area can be a stressful experience. After all the boxes have been packed and then unpacked and everything is now put away; the reality that you have changed your life really starts to set in. If you have a family, this can be an even bigger eye opener. When it’s all said and done, your kids will be ready to get back to what they consider normal – but since you’re new to the St. George neighborhood, you may not know where to start. Fortunately, our St. George Real Estate Agency has compiled a great list below; there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.

There are so many things to do in St. George, aside from the ever-popular and convenient Staten Island ferry boat to New York City. Away from the chaos of the city, it’s a great place to raise your kids and have some good, old fashioned family fun.

St. George Attractions

If you are new to New York City and Staten Island living, then you definitely want to take the ferry trip over to the Big Apple and start making incredible memories in one of the most notable places in the world. If you don’t want to make the journey across the Hudson, then consider choosing an attraction right along the shoreline that will offer incredible views of the city. By the river, you will find many restaurants, museums, and of course the minor league ballpark.

This is also the site for the world’s largest Ferris wheel, called the New York Wheel which is set to be completed in 2017. The completion of this project will undoubtedly bring even more family-friendly activities to the area.

Did you know that Staten Island is known as the greenest borough? It has some of the most beautiful and sprawling parks in the city, featuring more than 12,000 acres of protected land. These parks are perfect places for an afternoon picnic or a trip on the Carousel for All Children.

This area also offers many museums and cultural experiences right at your fingertips. Moving to St. George gives you a perfect mix of city life with a small-town feeling. You are separate enough from the city itself to afford you quiet and relaxation, without ever being too far from the conveniences of city life.
