New York Metro
New York Metro, New York
About New York MetroOf all the things New York is known for, golf is probably not in the top 10. Still, golfers can stay busy in the Big Apple. Start at the driving range with perhaps the best view in the world: the Golf Club at Chelsea Pier, with NYC as a backdrop. Queens is home to several good plays, including Forest Park Golf Course, Douglaston Golf Course, the short Kissena Golf Course, and many more golf courses.
Also, head to Flushing Meadows Golf Center, home to the 18-hole "Pitch & Putt" golf course and a modern mini-golf course with water falls, bridges and streams. When not on the course, New York City offers -- literally everything. Art and nightclubs and hipster neighborhoods and the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty and Central Park and the New York Museum of Natural History and a taping of Saturday Night Live and the Yankees and Magnolia Bakery and the Carnegie Deli and ... the choices are endless in the City That Never Sleeps.
