Where to Summer Staycation in NYC ...

Make the most of your summer and travel off the beaten path

You don't need to leave New York City to enjoy a getaway! Now, more than ever, New Yorkers can head to some of our favorite summer destinations to enjoy a safe, easy vacation day. When visiting a park, please make sure that you maintain at least 6 feet of social distance between groups, wash your hands frequently, and wear a face covering. If a park destination is crowded, take a walk or come back later!

Cool Pools

Our resort-style pools make any pool day feel like a vacay. Chill poolside in our lounge chairs and under our cabana-style umbrellas.
