One of the best things about being Land Rover dealers in CT is that there is plenty to do in and around our Guilford, CT Land Rover dealership. While there are many fantastic destinations nearby, two of our favorites are New York City and the Jersey Shore.

Some drivers express concern about how expensive it can be to visit the Big Apple. While New York City is well-known as one of the most expensive cities in the world for travelers, you don’t need to break the bank when you visit. New York City is home to a wide array of free or low-cost activities and attractions you can enjoy throughout the summer.

While a formal tour of the Statue of Liberty will cost $30 or more per adult, you can take in breathtaking views of the monument and the New York City skyline from the Staten Island Ferry. The ferry travels between Manhattan and Staten Island every 30 minutes around the clock. It’s free to ride the commuter ferry day or night, allowing you to take advantage of great photo ops anytime.

If you love gardening, you’ll want to check out the Brooklyn Botanical Garden during your visit to NYC. You can visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for free on Friday mornings before 12pm all summer long.

If art is your thing, you can visit the Museum of Modern Art for free on Fridays from 4pm until 8pm. You can follow up that experience with a visit to the Whitney Museum of American Art. Visiting the Whitney Museum of American Art is free on Fridays from 7pm through 9:30pm.

Of course, no trip though the tri-state area would be complete without a stop at the Jersey Shore. Bring your favorite beach towel and plenty of sunscreen and catch some rays along the coast of the Garden State.

Before you leave town, remember to have your car serviced in our Land Rover service center. Contact Land Rover Guildford to make an appointment now.
