When living in a metropolis like NYC, a weekend getaway is a must every once in a while. Here’s your guide to weekend getaways from the city. New York City is a sweet spot when it comes to weekend getaway options. North, south, east, and west of the city you’ll be able to find your local oasis. 


  1.     Cape Cod, MA - Four to five-hour drive from the city, Cape Cod has been a go-to vacation destination for decades. The vacation spot is known for its food, beautiful beaches, historic sites, and wineries. 
  2.     Lake George, NY - Up in the Adirondacks Mountains lies Lake George, a go-to destination for recreational activities on the lake. 
  3.     Newport, RI - Right on the water, Newport has the essential beautiful coastal beaches but also has a collection of historic mansions of all different architecture and unique stories.  
  4.     The Catskills, NY - Also up in the mountains, the Catskills is known for its fresh food and fresh water swimming spots. This is a perfect place for the foodie New Yorker who also loves lush greenery and nature. 
  5.     Nantucket, MA - This island is another great option for the New Yorker who loves the beachy town vibe.  Similar to Cape Cod and the Hamptons, Nantucket is filled with charm that can make any vacationer fall in love with this spot.
  6.     Philadelphia, PA - While Philly is another metropolis, it offers a change in scenery and cityscape. Philly is littered with historical landmarks stemming back to the revolutionary era of our country.
