You could also venture out of Manhattan, take a trip to the Bronx instead, and visit a historic seashore community for food, outdoor fun, and a retro neighborhood vibe. Even if you don’t plan on company, taking a one-day getaway to the Bronx's City Island might just be the ultimate city escape you're looking for.

A unique New York City experience, City Island has plenty to offer for urban dwellers seeking a seaside escape close to home. Make a road trip out of it and drive there instead of taking public transit. Bring your bike to ride along the island’s scenic cycling paths. And, for further insight on this seafaring isle, check out the 2009 indie comedy City Island, starring Julianna Margulies and Andy Garcia, about a close-knit yet devious family with tons of New York attitude.
