Over Sea Fun

I’d love to take a day trip even for just a couple of hours. Do you know of any close places to Manhattan that offer fun things to do?

Manhattan isn’t the only island in New York with exciting things to do. Randall’s Island, located on the East River between East Harlem, South Bronx, and Astoria, Queens is a 480-acre island complete with sporting events, a world-class track and field facility, a golf and tennis center, and Cirque du Soleil performances just to name a few.


Cirque du Soleil Kooza

Performances will be playing through June 21st at Randall’s Island Park under the Grand Chapiteau. The show tells a tale of an innocent loner trying to find his place in the world. While exploring themes of fear, identity, recognition, and power, two circus traditions are combined: acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. As always, the show is full of surprises and visually stimulating costumes and sets.

Randall’s Island Golf Center

Love golf, but don’t have the time to spend all day on the golf course? Take in a quick round of golf at Randall’s Island Golf Center. The center features a 6,500 square foot short game area, guaranteed to satisfy that craving for golf in only a matter of time. Practice your putt at the center’s well-manicured 36 hole miniature golf course to gear up for those intense golf games. Golfers who are serious about improving their golf game can tee-off year-round at the grass tee driving range.
Whether you’re a beginner golfer or just looking to cut back on your strokes, Randall’s Island Golf Center offers clinics and private lessons ($65-$75 per half-hour) taught by PGA members.
