Flushing Meadows–Corona Park—one of the top New York attractions and among the best things to do in Queens—was once home to the World’s Fair and is now the city's second-biggest park chock-full of plenty of outstanding things to do. In just one day, you can visit a zoo, go fishing at Meadow Lake, get your park barbecue on along the rolling grass and visit a skate park—not to mention all the art museums and cultural institutions nearby. (Care to see the Mets play, anyone?) Go on, get lost in it!
