Labor Day may be closing in, ready to mark the official “end of summer,” but there’s still time to enjoy the prime August weather and enjoy some family bonding on a spontaneous day- or weekend-trip to any number of nearby hot spots! Check out our top resources for end-of-summer out-of-town getaways!

Amusement Park Day-Trips: Day trips to the amusement parks are full of rides, greasy foods, and great memories with family and friends. Hear the roar of the coasters and the laughs from your kids as they take on the rides. The best part? Many of our faves are super-close to the city! More HERE!

Family Day-cations & Road Trips: From state parks to theme parks, beaches and mountains–we have 10 fun family day trips, all less than two hours from NYC (think City Island, Mystic CT, and Point Pleasant NJ). More HERE!

East End Adventures: Who has the best black & white cookies? Whose pizza rules? Which beaches are best? We have the answers to these and other essential questions in our special guide to family life in the Hamptons! More HERE!

Summer Festivals: While many of our fave summer fests are now treasured summer memories, there are still a few family-friendly fests and fairs with dates on the horizon through Labor Day! More HERE!
