There’s perhaps no city in the country more transit-friendly than New York. Got somewhere to go? Hop on the subway. Ride the bus. Hail a taxi. Rent a moped, scooter or bike. Get an Uber or Lyft. Or, just walk.
Enjoy the nightlife
So, what can you do when work’s over? A little bit of anything New York comes alive at night with its hundreds of clubs, bars, microbreweries, eateries, arcades and other venues that stay open all night long. Just play it safe.
Take a weekend getaway
Sometimes, you just need a break from city life. Good thing New York is just a few hours from beaches, mountains, lakes and all other types of beautiful terrain. Head upstate for a hike in the Adirondack Mountains. Cross the Hudson River to New Jersey, where you can take the whole family to Six Flags or catch a Giants or Jets game at the MetLife Stadium. Travel south to Rehoboth Beach in Delaware, or embrace the Amish countryside of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
End up on a movie set
New York is a common setting and filming location for movies and TV shows. You never know when you might end up as an extra in a film. Plus, you get first dibs at movie premieres and book tours, and the chance to join the live studio audience of any popular talk show.
