Top Ten Active Spring Vacations

New York, New York
Kayaking round Lady Liberty
Up close and personal with Lady Liberty (Huzar)

For that bright-lights, big-city experience this spring break, where else but the "City that Never Sleeps"? Between the toll on your body and your wallet, New York provides all the stimulation you can handle. Don't miss the spectacle of Times Square and Broadway, the awe-inspiring views from atop the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge, or the all-night partying at downtown clubs.

You don't need to leave the city to escape the concrete jungle. Central Park provides a green oasis in the middle of Manhattan (jog, bike, blade, or bird). All five boroughs offer horseback riding. Go sea kayaking on the Hudson River, flanked by Lady Liberty and Manhattan's impressive skyline, or enjoy traffic-free pedaling along the Big Apple's greenways. To really get away from it all, try biking or hiking up the Hudson River Valley.
