Queens is the most ethnically diverse area of its size on Earth, which means there's a little something for everyone. Chow down on Indian food, sit in on a traditional Irish pub music session, and dance the night away at a Puerto Rican nightclub, all of it located within a few subway stops. Queens is also the home of the Mets and the US Tennis Open, and the former home of the New York World's Fair, now Flushing Meadow-Corona Park, and Paramount Pictures, now the Museum of the Moving Image.

The legacy of the legendary jazz instrumentalist and vocalist, Louis Armstrong, is preserved at this Queens museum.
I enjoyed visiting the Louis Armstrong home for its fine collection of memorabilia (he tended to collect a lot of music-related artifacts during his many trips) and because his wife made sure the house remained pretty much as it was furnished when he passed away in 1971. Many of the rooms have the decor that was popular in the 1960s & 1970s (the kitchen was a classic from that era). Interesting to both music fans and architecture fans will be Louis' restored den, which is laid out as the miniature recording studio he used for the last years of his life. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Armstrong's overall life history and his impact on the American & international jazz scene. The gift shop has a lot of historic Armstrong recordings available. Note a much larger Louis Armstrong Museum welcome center (the existing house will remain pretty much as it is) is under construction to hold all of his historic artifacts; fans might want to wait until 2020 when that Center opens.

Gantry Plaza State Park is located in Long Island City in Queens and is a great park with a lot of family-friendly activities with a dog park, sand volleyball, dining, open spaces, and with some of the best views of the Manhattan skyline, especially at sunset. There is also a ferry that goes across to Manhattan, but is also conveniently located near a couple of subway stops. Entrance to the park is free. It's a former dockyards so it is interesting to see how they have repurposed the area into something everyone can use. There is free parking located nearby on the street.

A great NYC park for people-watching, this was the site of previous World Fairs and offers visitors bicycle paths, the Queens Wildlife Conservation Center, a carousel, freshwater fishing, indoor ice-skating rink and marina.
Queens, New York hosts an epic playground, Flushing Meadows Corona Park, for everyone’s unique desires. This 897 acre park is the 4th largest public park in NYC. It was once host to the 1939 & 1964 World’s Fair and Shea Stadium. It currently houses Citifield (home to the Mets), USTA Billie Jean National Tennis Center (US Open), New York Hall of Science, Queens Zoo, Queens Museum of Art, Queens Theatre in the Park, and the New York State Pavilion. This is a great place for multiple family adventures! Check out the link in my bio for information on all of the different attractions.

The only museum in the United States that is devoted exclusively to the history, art and technology of movies, television and video.
This place is worth visiting just to see the Jim Henson exhibit. Original muppets from the Muppet Show (Ms Piggy, Kermit the Frog and the Swedish Chef) We visited last April, and they also had a history of sports video games, from pong to modern eSports (and everything in between). Definitely a good museum option in a city full of museums.

Long Island beach in Queens borough that can be reached by subway. Popular destination for New Yorkers in mid-20th century, still pleasant to visit.
I have lived in Belle Harbor and Rockaway almost all my life. The Beach is a free one. Parking in the higher numbers is difficult. Best to come by ferry or mass transit. Further down, there are food services, bathrooms and ba nice boardwalk.
