Editorial Reviews

Review

"Organized by theme, this handy guide will allow you to travel the world without leaving the city." ~GO Magazine

"It’s a Baedeker for all that we should, but don’t, know about our city. It’s not your Statue of Liberty tourist stuff, but rather the offbeat and unusual adventures that are offered." ~Quest Magazine

Format: Paperback
I've been searching a long time for a book like this and have already used it as inspiration for three weekend getaways. As far as I'm concerned, I can now seriously ditch my other NY guidebooks. This is the only one I need. The author's depth of research is impressive, and the book is jam-packed with helpful info on fun and sometimes off-the-beaten-path activities. Who knew you could go fly fishing so close to home? More importantly, the itineraries are budget-friendly, whether you're looking for something romantic, kid-oriented, or simply a peaceful weekend away to recharge your batteries.

Format: Paperback
This book has a ton of great ideas, from spas to parks to romantic getaways. There are two parts, one about things to do in the city, and one about things to do outside the city. I've lived in NYC for a long time, but definitely got a lot of ideas from reading this book. I also gave it to a friend who is new to NYC, and he can't put it down.

Format: Paperback
The book gave me lots of ideas for excursions to take with our kids or a get-a-way for just my husband and me. It's a great guide whether you live in NYC or are visiting. I'm looking forward to taking some weekend getaways!
