“Of all the wonders of nature, a tree in summer is perhaps the most remarkable; with the possible exception of a moose singing ”Embraceable You” in spats.” Woody Allen
We had a brutal winter and a wet spring, but in less than a month, we will be ready for the colors, heat and outdoors of summertime in NYC and State. Summer is almost upon us and we can feel the excitement in the air.. While the first day of our summer solstice is not till June 21st, most of us are gearing up, mentally and physically, to get our summer groove on. New York is a great place to visit at any time of the year, but our summers are packed with loads of things to do and places to go. Since it is also a tourist friendly state, you are bound to meet people from around the world or, perhaps, from your neck of the wood and take home wonderful memories of your time here.
To help us get the most our time here this summer, I have pulled together a list of top things to do while you make your pit stop in NY. I included some things outside the city because there is plenty to see within a a few hours ride by train or car. So don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy trips inside and outside NY. Below are Ten plus more things to do in NY this summer… Additional resources are here. NYCgo, NYMag, Attractions and Tours. What else would you like to do? Blog Hop continues below!
