With Memorial Day behind us, it’s time to celebrate the unofficial start of summer and enjoy the sunshine! Busy schedules and travel make it hard, though, to carve out time and travel to a destination vacation. However, a staycation in the City is well within reach and at the McCarren Hotel, located in hip Williamsburg, fun in the sun is closer than ever! With complimentary Brooklyn Bicycle Co. bikes and an outdoor saltwater pool, your little ones can break out those sporty sneakers and the cool swimwear to enjoy the weather. And as your weekend comes to a close on Sunday, be sure to check out the Brooklyn Flea Market, located only a few blocks to the east.
The Gansevoort Meatpacking is another exciting staycation option located in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan and has an outdoor pool (including this ever-cool swan) as well as close proximity to the Highline Park and the brand-new Whitney Museum. And if you have a pet, fear not! The Gansevoort was voted the most pet-friendly hotel in America!
