Don’t let the bright lights of New York City stop you from enjoying a more rustic setting just outside the city. Enjoy New York’s more natural settings when you book a vacation rental with a pool near New York City. The summer heat in the city can be brutal, so cooling down in a crystal clear pool of water outside your vacation home. Take a few laps or simply soak up some rays. If you’re feeling more adventurous, rent a sailboat or kayak and take a trip to Montauk. To find some tree cover, head north to Harriman State Park or the Catskill Mountains. These vacation rentals offer the perfect escape from the city, so be sure to bring along your hiking boots, paddle boards, mountain bikes, or your favorite toy. Bring the whole family, group of friends, or significant other for a scenic trip to the NYC surrounding area.
