Top Ten Things to Do in Queens

  2. Check out the Museum of the Moving Image. Calling all cinephiles! This Queens museum has a wealth of information on the history, technology and art of making movies, with a series of exhibits that are hands-on and interactive.
  3. Spend an afternoon at The Unisphere. Queen's most iconic symbol, this giant globe and the area surrounding it are great for snapping pictures, playing in the fountain and being at the center of all things exciting in the neighborhood.
  4. Explore Downtown Flushing. This section of Queens is considered NYC's second Chinatown, and has all of the great food and bargains of Chinatown without as many crowds.

  6. Spot your favorite animal at the Queens Zoo. This zoo is smaller and easier to navigate than the Bronx zoo, but it still has plenty of cuddly creatures to get an up close look at.
  7. Have a relaxing time at the Queens Botanical Garden. Get away from the city-feel of the Big Apple for a bit by stepping into this lush green paradise filled with delightly fragrant flowers.
  8. Sip a cold one at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden. Enjoy a beer on one of the picnic tables in a shady grove at this Astoria Beer Garden, which feels like something out of Bohemia and is populated with a regular cast of characters.
  9. Get away from it all at Forest Park. Go for a hike through the gorgeous terrain, or take a spin on the park's carousel.
  10. Admire some artwork at the Queens Museum of Art. This museum has a fascinating panorama which is a vivid and detailed reproduction of New York City; you can even try and spot your hotel!
