7 Places In New York That Are Like A Caribbean Paradise In The Summer

Recently one of our followers on Only In New York’s Instagram tagged us in a beautiful shot and shared in her caption that “New York’s nickname should be changed to the “Hidden Gem” state…. nature is boundless here!” – and I couldn’t agree more! No matter how long you’ve been a resident of New York, it always feels like you’re discovering something new that you never realized existed right here in our backyard.

With that said, why plan an expensive vacation away when there’s still so much to see and do here in your home state? All throughout the Empire State, you can find little pieces of paradise that will make you feel like you’ve been transported down to the Caribbean. So ditch the long flights and keep your money in your wallet, it’s time to think about planning the ultimate staycation to one of these beautiful utopias.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
