Escape the City: Governor’s Island

Living in New York City, it’s easy to get caught in the trap of never leaving the 3 mile radius around your home.

But every now and then it’s good to find a new place to explore and escape. I recently visited Governor’s Island for the first time and it was amazing! 

There are a number of attractions including bike riding, Castle Williams (an former New York prison and military post), sight-seeing and not to mention so many food vendors!

Not to mention you take the ferry to get there? Ferry rides are free from Manhattan between 10:00-11:30 am. I’d definitely suggest going by yourself or with some friends to just hang out for the day.
