NYC area getaways..

I know there have been questions re: where can I go for a trip out of NYC, and many suggestions and threads. This week Time Out NY (essential reading for many visitors) gives its opinion


There's many here I've never seen myself. I would also add AC, Brandywine Valley (PA/DE), northern Chesapeake Bay/Eastern Shore, Berkshire Mountains, Lancaster/Amish land, Connecticut Shore, Newport RI.

New York has Water. Lots and lots of it. Do you prefer salty & surfy or salty & flat?

Salty & surfy:

Riis Park

Gateway Park (with fishing permit)

Jones Beach

Salty & flat:

Coney Island

Brighton Beach

Fresh and wavy or fresh & flat?

Fresh & flat, the possibilities are endless.

Esopus Creek inner tubing

Hudson River cruises from Manhattan

The Finger Lakes, each more then 10 miles long and most a mile or two wide: Conesus, Hemlock, Honeoye, Keuka, Cayuga, Seneca, Oneida, Canadaigua, Skaneateles, Owasco and Otisco.

Fresh & wavy, I used to go to the upper Hudson, north of Saratoga, inside the Adirondack Park.
