Glamp Beachside in Fort Tilden: The Insider Scoop
The campsite offers some programming on weekends – like morning yoga, impromptu live music at sunset, and a hammock to kick back in – but you will spend the majority of your time exploring offsite. There are endless summer activities to do within walking distance! Rent bikes, kayaks, and standup paddleboards with Wheel Fun Rentals. Get in touch with nature on a Whale Watching and Dolphin Adventure Cruise (open Wed-Sun), or climb to the top of the Battery Harris East Lookout for the best birdwatching in the area and a 360 degree view of Jamaica Bay and the ocean. Explore the local art scene and check out MoMA PS1’s nearby art installation, then head to the Rockaway Artists Alliancegallery space to see the latest exhibit. Later on, retreat to the beach with a book and take a dip (no lifeguards are on duty here, so head to Jacob Riis Beach with the kids).
