Suggestions For Last-Minute Short Trip From NYC?

Jump to last reply

So finally I feel like I don't have any commitments later this week. I'm looking to take a very short trip that will be easy to plan just for a change of scenery.

Does someone have any suggestions? This could be a day trip or perhaps a 2-day trip.

I've never been to the Hamptons, so I was thinking of going to take a look. But I've no idea what's there.

A beach of some sort seems appealing, even though I'm not a fan of beaches. I was thinking of Provincetown, but I've to fly to Boston and take a ferry. I've been to Fire Island also. I've not been to Cape May. This seems appealing, but it seems hard to get to.

I don't want to drive.

Since I'm not working, leaving on a weekday makes sense. I'm not too interested in being involved with big crowds.

I'll consider Hudson Valley too, but again, I'm not sure what's there and what's accessible without a car. I've been to Beacon to see Dia:Beacon.

I've been to the major cities around here already, including DC, Philadelphia, Boston, so I don't think that that's the way I really want to go.

Thanks!
