Looking for the best summer plans in NYC?

Nothing better than enjoying the sights and sounds of the city with macarons in hand.

New York is fascinating year-round, but it’s even better during the summer months. All parks become the perfect picnic scene, the streets become filled with fellow new yorkers plus so many tourists who come to enjoy, party, eat, and stroll around the city, and so much more!

A Woops! Kiosk has a big display of French macarons with different flavors, several boxes with different sizes, and a big banner.

If you want an extra sweetness to your New York summertime, then ask yourself this: “where are the best French macarons near me?” and the answer is simple, in Woops! 😉

We suggest you find your way around this exciting city through the Port Authority Bus Terminal, from here you can get to any place in both New York & New Jersey. What’s best is that you can find one of our French macaron boutique kiosks in this place and delight yourself in your trip.

Now let us give you our list of favorite activities and places to go visit in the Big Apple during this lovely season… with macarons in hand of course.

Spend some time outdoors!

Though there are tons of amaaaazinggg restaurants all throughout New York, there are also some super incredible outdoorsy places that are a must. Our favorite? Governors Island which is only open during the summer months!

Plus, it’s really cheap to get there by ferry which you can grab at the southern tip of Manhattan. Here you can catch a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty and grasp in the lovely views of the city in peace.

We believe that everything can be made better with some delicious goodies in hand, so take some French macaron boxes with you (take a sweet look at all our different flavors) and make your New York peaceful sightseeing so much sweeter, tasteful, and elegant.

Concerts at the park, you said?

Yep, New York philharmonic concerts in fact. Listen to some relaxing classical music in your evenings with the summer concerts that are held in (almost) every park of the city! Check out and see if there’s any concert you might want to go to.

Who doesn’t love free stuff?

We sure do, which is why some free kayaking on the Hudson River & East River sounds amazing to us! This is a reaaaally cool event that can be booked several times in the same month.

It’s a new and innovative way to discover (or meet, if it’s your first time here) New York City. How would we do it? Starting from the Manhattan Community Boathouse, located at Pier 96 at the Hudson River, or at the Brooklyn Bridge Park which is between Pier 1 and Pier 2.

You can enjoy this incredible activity every Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday until the end of August. But reserve your seats & preferred date because they’re limited, click here for the Manhattan Community Boathouse & here for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse.

So little, so beautiful!

In contrast to our delicious French macarons, which are bigger than the average mac (yay for you), New York’s Little Island is known for being well… little and so incredibly beautiful. Plus, it’s an architectural and designing delight, so for those who love everything pretty, this place is a must.

This island is made up of 132 tulip-shaped concrete stilts in the Hudson River and it isn’t far from the Meatpacking District and the High Line, which are also great places to visit this summer, by the way.

Besides the gorgeousness that comes with it, you can also visit the different events and art exhibitions & activities that take place here, so check their calendar right now and get planning

New York’s Columbus Circle is filled with cabs and cars, in its center is a famous monument and we can see Central Park and several buildings surrounding it.


Who doesn’t love a little bit of shopping & eating?

Located in the Broadway, Central Park West, Central Park South, and 8th Avenue intersection, Columbus Circle has become one of the best places to shop, eat, and enjoy in New York.

This place is open from Monday to Saturday between 10:00 am & 8:00 pm and on Sundays from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. You can also get a taste of Woops! here, so head on to our kiosk located in the Turnstyle Underground Market.

Last but not least, enjoy the best:

Ice cream! Yeah, we love ice cream… we love everything sweet in fact. New York has some amazing, tasty, and creative spots to eat some of this creamy dessert.

Our favorites are Big Gay Ice Cream Shop in the East and West Village, Ice & Vice and Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream in the Lower East Side, and (this one we really love) Van Leeuwen!

This last one has several locations around the city and they’re oh! so spectacular, plus they’ve got numerous vegan options which are just as amazing as their other flavors.
