Traveling with a Teen in NYC

Longing for some uninterrupted time with our only child, my husband and I agreed that we needed a family vacation.
Bribing is not necessarily the best parenting practice. However, the opportunities to travel with our insanely busy college-age son, Weston, are dwindling. So we made him an offer he couldn’t refuse–an all expense-paid trip to New York City.
After consulting all our calendars, the dates were set and nonrefundable airline tickets were purchased.
Choosing New York City was a no-brainer. All of us have been several times so no one would feel compelled to play the frenzied tourist. Instead, we envisioned a more leisurely trip–dining in Little Italy, strolling through Central Park, watching Broadway shows, and exploring museums.
