Summer in the city can be tough to endure, especially when the exhaustion of the everyday hustle starts to get to you. While New York City is a beautiful, dynamic city, adding a little variety to your summer scenery is a pleasant thing for any tired city dweller.
Luckily, there are a ton of great places within a short distance of NYC that offer solace, relief from the hustle and bustle of the city, and beautiful natural sights. And there’s no better way to see those sights than from the comfortable, luxury seats of a limo bus.
Coachman Luxury Transport loves NYC, Long Island and all of the outlying areas that make New York one of the most beautiful states in the country. We compiled a list of a few spots for escape New York City, complete with the comforts of a limo bus.
Situated on the east bank of the Hudson River, Cold Spring is a town of less than 2,000; it’s the ideal day trip for New Yorkers who are need to escape the speed and chaos of the city, breathe some fresh air and simply slow down.
During your escape to Cold Spring, you can enjoy:

Also situated on the east shore of the Hudson, Beacon is just over an hour drive from Manhattan, but offers a much different atmosphere than the City that Never Sleeps.
Beacon boasts a population of just under 16,000, and was the longtime home of famous folk singer Pete Seeger; Seeger’s environmental advocacy for Beacon, as well as recent pushes by residents to invigorate the art and recreation scenes, have helped make it an absolute haven for Manhattanites, Brooklynites and other New Yorkers looking for a change of pace. In recent years, this diamond on the Hudson River shore has been polished, rejuvenated and regained much of its historical charm.
Here are a few musts during your escape to Beacon:
- Minnewaska State Park Preserve
- The Arts District: featuring stand-out museums and galleries like Dia: Beacon and Marion
A spot literally dedicated to helping New Yorkers get away, Governor’s Island is the closest on our list in vicinity to the Big Apple, located just 800 yards from lower Manhattan.
Governor’s Island is an easy option for a day escape because it’s so close; it still manages, however, to provide a distinct change in pace from the craziness of the city, with its open spaces, natural features, and community-like feel.
Biking, hiking, relaxing in the parks, restaurants and art museums are just a few of the things you can get into during your escape to Governor’s Island.
A summertime escape should be just that—an escape, from all of the stresses and frustrations of day to day life in the city. For many New Yorkers, driving is among the most anxious of their daily tasks. When it’s time to plan a trip out of the city, you should be able to leave the driving behind.
