It may not seem like it with the crazy weather lately, but trust us: summer is coming!

We couldn’t be more excited to ditch the grey dreariness and soak up some sunshine, which is why we’re pumped to hear about Go Wild NYC, an outdoor adventures company that organizes all sorts of gorgeous getaways from the city. And the best part? Many of the trips depart from our neighborhood!

Go Wild NYC (also known as NYC Beach Bums) takes city dwellers like ourselves out of the concrete jungle and into Mother Nature. If you can’t wait to hit the beach, they have plenty of options, both for camping and day-tripping. Looking for a quick burst of sunshine? Rockaway Beach, Robert Moses, and Montauk are just a ride away. If camping is more your speed, Hither Hills, Smith Point, and Otis Pike are all waiting for you.
