WHAT: A beautiful staycation awaits at Island Oyster on Governors Island. This waterfront bar and restaurant offers jaw dropping views of the Manhattan skyline, and the fun island vibe will make you instantly feel as if you were whisked away to the beach. .
FOR KIDS: This island oasis is very kid friendly. They offer a ping pong table, plenty of space to roam, and a (albeit small) children’s menu to curb hungry belly groans. Bonus: it’s only a short walk from the new ice rink that was featured earlier today! .
WHERE: 146 Carder Road, Governors Island (right near the ferry dock) .
