Louis Armstrong House

Louis Armstrong lived for many years in Corona, and the home remains much as it did during his lifetime. Guided tours are accompanied by audio clips from Armstrong’s homemade recordings—hear him blowing his horn, enjoying a meal, or talking with friends. Admission is $10 and there’s plenty of street parking available.

Rockaway Beach

If it’s good enough for The Ramones, it’s good enough for us. Beachgoers can soak up the sun, enjoy a variety of concessions, and then hit the City’s only legal surfing beach. Rockaway Beach is also home to a variety of playgrounds, barbecue areas, handball and basketball courts, fitness equipment and a skate park.

Queens Zoo

Pathways at this zoo in Corona lead you through wild habitats of the Great Plains, the rocky California coast, and a Northeast forest. Looking back at you will be American bison, mountain lions, California sea lions, American bald eagles, and a Roosevelt elk.

Fort Totten

This Bayside fort was built during the Civil War, and its ruins are now accessible to the public. But that’s not all: On hot summer days you can take a dip in the pool or soak up the sun around its grassy edges, or take a canoe and paddle out into the Long Island Sound. Urban Park Rangers lead regular tours of the fortress and the wildlife surrounding it.
