Less than an hour outside the city is a spot capable of stimulating nearly all the senses in one package. The Nassau County Museum of Art boasts more than 145 acres of verdant outdoor space to contemplate sculptures and hike family-friendly nature trails.

Rotating exhibitions are housed within a 100-year-old Georgian style mansion (admission and reservations required). The current exhibition, “Blue,” targets the ‘blue periods’ of a range of artists spanning centuries up to the present. See some of the many standout works here.

Pack a picnic. We did. It makes for a standout day with ample space to distance. Plus, the foliage is popping right now.

Timed tickets must be booked in advance
