Governors Island, New York, NY Get directions


Bringing your own bike to the island is great because you get priority loading onto the ferry, but biking for free when you get there is even better. On weekdays between 10 a.m. and noon, adults and children can borrow cruiser bikes for an hour, for free. The island has a bike path around the entire perimeter -- and the views are amazing. Plus, there are hammocks to chill in when your legs get tired.
