Location: Floral Park, New York
No need to leave New York City for a rustic experience! Since 1697, the 47-acre Queens County Farm has provided urbanites with greenery and tranquility. Home to a plethora of seasonal events—including the Amazing Maize Maze in the fall and wreath-making workshops in the winter—the bucolic escape is accessible all year long. Visitors are able to enjoy the site's farmer's market, petting zoo, educational classes for all ages and so much more. And you thought Gotham was all about skyscrapers and subways!
