Few things are as pleasurable as New York City in the summer. From the cool treasure-filled halls of the marble lined Metropolitan Museum of art to a quick game of Frisbee in shady Central Park in the afternoon to a trip on the famous Staten Island ferry and a walk along the Rockaways boardwalk, New York City comes wonderfully alive during the warm summer months. At our company, we know our clients want to enjoy all this vibrant place has to offer. If you are planning a trip to this part of the country at this time of the year, there are lots of fabulous ways to truly enjoy the New York Summer.
Museums are a Must
Escape the heat by heading indoors. New York City is home to dozens of terrific museums. Summer is the ideal time to explore them. Start downtown with the National Museum of the Native America. It’s a branch of the Smithsonian so admission is free. If you’re on a budget, check out the American Folk Art Museum and the Scandinavia House because they’re also free. History lovers should head for the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and the Museum of the City of New York. The American Museum of Natural History is the perfect place to bring the kids. Dozens of exhibits will charm them. It’s adjacent to the New York Planetarium, making it easy to get to both at the same time. Museum mile, on the edge of Central Park, also makes it easy to get to many museums in a single day.
Cooling Off Outdoors
One of the many great pleasures of New York City is that there are so many ways to cool off outdoors during the summer. Take the A train to the Rockaways. The beach is a short walk away. Stroll across the boardwalk and walk into the water for some of the best surfing you’ll find on the entire east coast. Another way to enjoy New York City in the summer is from the deck of the Staten Island ferry. Take the free ferry service from the tip of the island. Sit back and admire the view of downtown from the deck. It’ll take you about an hour or an hour and a half to go both ways. Be sure to have a look when the ferry passes in front of the Statue of Liberty.
Wait Until the Sun Goes Down
After the sun goes down, New Yorkers embrace the cooler air and celebrate. There’s plenty of dancing and clubbing all year long. It’s easy to get into the heart of Manhattan with our New York car service and our Westchester car service. Hit Alphabet City for some of the newest and hottest clubs. You can relax the night away and have a drink knowing that you we’ll be there with our safe and luxurious services at all times to bring you to your destination and pick you up at your destination when it is most convenient.
