Day trips Things to do

Luna Park - Coney Island

The legendary amusement park Coney Island has been through more loopty loops than its famed roller coasters and is home to the smaller, but still fun playground, Luna Park.

Montauk Point

For some fresh air and rosy cheeks, head past the Hamptons to the eastern-most end of Long Island for miles of sandy beaches and great natural preserve areas.

West Point

Fans of An Officer and A Gentleman better put on their bibs before entering West Point and facing its 5,000 young officers-in-training.

Atlantic City

Although lacking Vegas attractions like Cher or Streisand, with bright lights and more glitter than Halloween in Chelsea, there’s plenty to get giddy about.

Belmont Park

One of America’s most important horse racing tracks and the home of the legendary Belmont Stakes race, it’s also a perfectly pleasant and laid-back day out.

Governors Island

Pack a picnic basket and check out what New Yorkers themselves are only just discovering: a quick and easy, peaceful escape from the city - without really leaving it.
