    Camp Hero, Hither Hills, Montauk Point, and Shadmoor State Park in Long Island accommodate leashed pets. Other pet-friendly beaches include Brooklyn's Prospect Park, West Bay Shore, and Fire Island National Seashore. Certain parks may have policies regarding pet-friendly visiting hours. It is a good idea to call ahead of time to see about any potential restrictions.

    You should check out MommyPoppins.com (http://mommypoppins.com), a great NYC resource that's written with local families as well as out-of-towners in mind. You should definitely find something there to fill up your day, though sounds like you've already got a full plate of ideas. Two other big-ticket options your daughter might enjoy are Central Park and a boat trip on the Staten Island Ferry.

    Well, NYC is an urban jungle, which means loads of concrete and pollution. Not sure you'd want to swim in that water! Good news is that there are beaches within public-transport range of Manhattan, including two beaches on Rockaway Island, which lies across Brooklyn and into the far reaches of Queens. Coney Island is, of course, a New York summer icon. Then you've got the pristine sands at Fire Island National Seashore, the beaches on Long Island, and Fire Island National Seashore. Technically not part of the national seashore, you should take a look at Robert Moses Beach at the westernmost point of Fire Island in Robert Moses State Park.
