We live for the weekend. So, this summer, we're sharing the epic destinations that are filling up our 48 hours of uninterrupted freedom in this new series, Urban Tripping. Get inspired, and then show us your own #Epic48 weekend snaps on Instagram.
There's nothing like summertime plans in the city. It's the only season when shamelessly dumping our paycheck on endless BBQs, another swimsuit, and getaway car rentals is totally acceptable — and completely worth it. But, since we can't be beaching on Fire Island every weekend, we're all about going local with our adventure in the urban playground that is NYC.
So, we teamed up with Secret's Destinations and Scent Expressions Collections to bring you nine of our favorite summer activities — all of which you can do while staying pleasantly fragrant and feeling fresh despite the overbearing heat. And, since not all adventures require serious cash, these activities are both nearby and dirt cheap. Oh, that sweet, delicate dance between maximum fun and minimum funds — we're grooving to it ahead.
