'Destination Summer': Watch our half-hour special on the joys of summer in the NY metro area

It's time to get out and enjoy all the NY Metro area has to offer in warm weather!

Join Eyewitness News Meteorologist Amy Freeze for our annual half-hour special "Destination: Summer" on Saturday, June 30 at 7 p.m. on ABC7 (Encore Sunday 7/1 at 5:30 a.m.). We highlight some great activities that may be news to you or are worth another visit this summer.

First off, we'll go on a walking tour of the Lower East Side, experiencing immigrant history and food.

And, no summer is complete without baseball! Besides the Yankees and Mets, there are great minor league parks close to home where you can watch America's favorite pastime.

Our area also has some of the best parks in the country. If you haven't been to Governor's Island, it's time!

Besides the inexpensive ferry ride and great bike paths, there are acres with stunning views of New York Harbor, zip lining, art installations and yes, even overnight tent camping -- done with New York flair, of course.
