New York is our playground. When you start itching for fresh air and open spaces, it's time to delve into the outdoor activities of New York City. You don't need to be a fitness guru to enjoy the natural wonders of New York City either; these activities come just as active or relaxed as you'd like. So get out of the house, and get back to nature. There are plenty of places to soak up outdoor fun across all five boroughs. Head to Queens to see live tennis matches, or catch a Yankee game in the Bronx. For beach lovers, head to the Rockaways to catch some waves, or lay amongst Europeans at Brighton Beach. Whatever you crave outside, we've got you covered. Don't forget the sun screen!
