It’s the perfect way to de-stress and rejuvenate both body and mind.

3. Biking Across the Brooklyn Bridge

Whether you’re a seasoned paddler or a beginner, exploring the city from the water offers a unique perspective and a full-body workout. So grab a paddle and soak in the sights of the city skyline as you glide across the water.
