Recommended Weekend Getaways From NYC Without a Car
An ongoing collection of the most interesting & highly rated getaways from NYC that are accessible by train or bus.
While it may seem futile to be stranded in the city without an escape vehicle, you still have plenty of getaway options. (In other words: no excuses, pal.) You’d be surprised at how many interesting places that Metro-North, Trailways, or Amtrak can take you – especially in the age of Uber & Lyft.
As far as towns go, Kingston, Woodstock, Hudson, Beacon, and Asbury Park are your best bets without a car (guides coming soon). They all offer enough to do – even without wheels to get you around.
Though, today’s abundance of getaway-worthy hotels and rentals expand your options beyond the few towns accessible by your no-car-having a$$. While we’ll always advocate for getting a rental car, these are your best bets if that’s too stressful for you.
