Visit Queens: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Queens

Louis Armstrong House
For a real slice of iconic America, don’t miss a trip to the Louis Armstrong House. The king of jazz’s home has been perfectly preserved, so you can see first hand how he and his wife Lucille lived in their cosy house in Queens. The passionate guides will take you on a tour of history, love and music, where you’ll feel transported to Louis’s wonderful world.
Flushing Meadows Corona Park
Spend a day at this park, and you’ll see the whole world. Flushing Meadows Corona Park is famous for the Unisphere, a gargantuan steel globe built in 1964 for the World’s Fair. Aside from this impressive structure, you can visit its science hall, zoo, boating lake and skate park – or just enjoy an afternoon BBQ on the grass. Sports fans will love seeing the stadiums or playing catch, while fisherman can head to Meadow Lake.
New York Hall of Science
The New York Hall of Science takes a hands-on approach to a whole new level. This fun-filled science museum lets visitors experiment with light, sound, nature and technology through interactive exhibits. It’s a place where the whole family can play and learn together. Just a tip: there’s free entry on Friday afternoons.
Flushing Meadows
Originally created for the site of the 1939 World’s Fair, it’s the current venue for the US Open, the Mets baseball team, museums, parks and wildlife centers.

The hotel is located in a good neighborhood, and we always found a parking space in the lot, but they also have extra parking if the lot is full. Queens has many good locations to stay at, and this is one of them.

Queens is a great choice for those who want to visit New York but can't afford staying in Manhattan. Furthermore, from Queens you can enjoy the view of Manhattan and the so called sky line!! Therefore, I would definately recommend it!

The airport shuttle was not available to us because we arrived "after hours". We arrived around 230 am, after waiting in line for a cab at the airport. We could only sleep a few hours before we had to get started on the trip to access Metro North.

I live in Queens and appreciate how much it has to offer. It has areas close to the city and is a melting pot of cultures and food. It also has two major airports.

The hotel offers a shuttle to the subway stops as it is a little the beaten path. Subway easy to navigate through Queens. Staff was very helpful to direct us to specific neighborhoods.

A stone's throw from the heart of NYC, the city of the blazing lights, the living maze that never sleeps, a place that everyone, given the opportunity, shoud visit.

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Queens for food?

The restaurant next to the hotel, their food was really good and the traditional architecture was great. It was and amazing experience.

Talking about the Natural History Museum in NYC; one of the world's great museums, especially with the planetarium attached

The subway was only two blocks away. We only slept in Queens. We spent most of our time in Manhattan.

Helpful when I found myself lost.
