New York City is unlike any other place in the world, and that's just the way we like it. Still, it's fun to get away from New York for a weekend to show our families what lies beyond the city limits (nature! science! art! fun! food!). If you're looking for family-friendly weekend getaways, you don't have to travel far to feel like you're a world away.
We've rounded up 12 of our favorite kid-friendly destinations for stir-crazy city families, all 3 hours or less from NYC.
