Queens, New York, is the largest borough of New York City and found in the most eastern point across from Manhattan. Queens is a very popular destination among visitors because it has a wide range of things to do, from museums, shops, theaters, and parks. Queens has a long history, along with the other four boroughs, and you can learn all about it at the various historical museums and monuments. As Queens is so diverse, there are many cultural influences across the area, including districts and restaurants from all over the world. This vibrant borough is sure to keep you entertained and is a must-visit spot in NYC to get a slice of local, New Yorker life.
Queens is very big, so there are plenty of areas to explore and things to do. For the sports fan, see a game at the Citi Field or at the USTA National Tennis Center. Both locations are famous for hosting important games and there is a regular schedule of listings.
If history and culture is more your thing, you'll be spoiled for choice in Queens. The Louis Armstrong House is open to the public and is where you can check out relics and antiques which belonged to the musician -- including one of his trumpets. Other spots also worth seeing are the Museum of Moving Images, the Queens Museum, and the New York Museum of Science -- all have great exhibitions suitable for all ages. For a very special museum, spend some time in the MoMA PS1, it's dedicated to contemporary arts and provides a wonderful feel for the buzzing creativity in New York as a whole.
For time outside among beautiful plants, flowers, and green lands visit the Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the Astoria Park, where visitors can go for a stroll or rent a bike and explore on two whells. Corona Park is particularly impressive as it has indoor ice skating rings, fishing activities, a wildlife conservation center, and a marina. After a long day exploring, pop into an Irish pub for a round of drinks (most likely Guinness) and hearty food.
The best areas to stay in Queens are close to the harbor and the main parks as well, like Woodhaven and Briarwood. Most neighborhoods have subway stations, restaurants, and shops near by, plus host a wide selection of vacation rentals. Whether you're looking for a large vacation home for a family or a cozy apartment for a couple, you're sure to find it here.
