Outdoors + Nature

Escape from New York

by Concierge.com Staff

We love you, New York City. Really, we do. But we have needs—needs for open space, expanses of green, a bit of alone time. And so, it's time to see other places. Whether you're a lifelong New Yorker or a first-time visitor, there's nothing like pounding the pavement in a skyscraper's shadow on what should be a sunny summer's day to end your love affair with the world's greatest metropolis. That's why we've sought out seven oases—all within about an hour's travel (by foot, bike, subway, car, boat, train, or plane)—that feel worlds away from Manhattan. From an island with a fishing village vibe to a small country town where you'll need to trade your high heels for hiking boots, these seven quick, easy trips will leave you refreshed, recharged, and ready to fall in love with the city all over again.
