Queens Botanical Garden

Long layover

Eight miles north of JFK is the Queens Botanical Gardens, part of an exhibit for the 1939 World's Fair.

The gardens contain 39 acres of roses, herbs, perennials, seasonal gardens and bee habitat. Several walking paths wind through the area, making for a relaxing way to take in natural surroundings before or after time in the concrete jungle.

Travel here by cab or via the Q44 or Q20 buses, both of which connect to the JFK AirTrain.

Bird Watch in Jamaica Bay

Long layover

JFK Airport perches on the northeastern edge of Jamaica Bay, part of Long Island. Part of the bay is protected by the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, which covers over 9,000 acres of salt marsh, grasslands, fresh and brackish ponds, and open water. Here, you can spot birds from some 330 species - like osprey and bald eagles, known to frequent the area.

You won't be able to take public transportation here, so hail a cab or car service outside the terminal and travel the 5km to the refuge's Visitor Center. Here, you can hike trails alone or participate in a ranger-led programme.

Visit Rockaway Beach

Long Layover

How about a day (or an hour, at least) at Rockaway beach? From the A train station in Howard Beach - easily accessed via the AirTrain from your terminal - it's just two stops to Beach 90th Street, where you can hop off and enjoy the sandy beaches of New York. The summer is very much in full swing, with portions of the famous boardwalk restored after Hurricane Sandy.

Hungry? Grab a bite at Rockaway Taco, a charming shack that managed to survive the storm. Located on Beach 96th Street, between the train station and the beach, it is popular with local surfers and hip young things who've been making The Rockaways their summer hangout in recent years, bringing a cool new vibe to the area.
