We love New York City, but sometimes it can be very exhausting and overcrowded. If you feel like you’re running our of energy, it means that it’s time to get out of town for a few days. Traveling enriches and recharges you, and by exploring new destinations you can experience the world in a different way. How about a road trip? The joy of traveling is even bigger when you’re doing it with friends and the ride is also part of the fun!

But what do you need for a memorable road trip? Great friends, nice music, light snacks and of course – a destination. We have 7 Summer Road Trip Ideas For New Yorkers to help you with choosing your next vacation spot. All of these destinations are few hours away from NYC, so you won’t be too bored to party once you arrive!
