Summer Scenes: Where to Go Before the Snow

Posted on July 10, 2007 in Trip Ideas

With mid-July just around the corner, summer is sneaking away in a blaze of sunshine and heat. Hit the asphalt and get the upper hand before it’s too late (literally) at New York’s Coney Island, whose legendary carnival rides and freak-show attractions opened their doors for the last time this summer (plans to build luxury seaside condos in their place are underway). Also pulling a disappearing act are the heart-shaped tubs of yesteryear in Pennsylvania’s Poconos region, a picturesque swathe of lakes and mountains tarnished by a reputation for greeting-card romance that has only just lifted. Or forego the AC to experience the flavor of whatever destination you’re headed to (or living in) sans vehicle: hit the streets with an open mind, an empty stomach…and an arsenal of antibacterial wipes.
