Overview

Horseback riding. Kayaking. Drive-in movies. Not the activities that first come to mind when you think of getaways in the New York City area. But each can be done only a short distance from the Big Apple—or in some cases, inside the city itself! City Weekends features itineraries for over 100 getaways in and outside of New York City for residents and visitors alike, including off-beat adventures, romantic outings, relaxing respites, and fresh scenery. The first section features weekends within the five boroughs; the second covers New Jersey, Connecticut, Long Island, and other parts of New York state. Both describe excursions of all types—cultural activities, relaxing retreats, outdoor escapes, festivals, fairs, and markets, and trips to do with kids. Side trips that stretch each weekend into a multiday trip are given, as are options for abbreviated daytrips. Hotels and inns, places to shop and dine, and transportation tips are included.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Organized by theme, this handy guide will allow you to travel the world without leaving the city." ~GO Magazine

"It’s a Baedeker for all that we should, but don’t, know about our city. It’s not your Statue of Liberty tourist stuff, but rather the offbeat and unusual adventures that are offered." ~Quest Magazine
