Several times throughout the day, Statue Cruises ferries depart from Liberty State Park in New Jersey or Battery Park in New York and haul groups to an iconic symbol of freedom: the Statue of Liberty. So long as the statue isn't away on vacation, passengers have the chance to hop off at Ellis Island and explore the statue's inner-workings. They can wind their way up to the statue's crown, a climb that includes 393 steps?or the equivalent of a 27-story building. But even if Statue Cruises customers choose to stay on the ground, they can still enjoy the inspiring sights of Ellis Island. Plus, the company's harbor cruises boast magnificent views, as well, including of Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and more.

The knotted wood floors, exposed brick, and cerulean walls at Go Row Training Studio set a rustic scene for one-hour rowing workouts that hold groups of 10. Rather than falling into a repetitive workout routine, exercise physiologist Garrett Roberts?s college-rowing-inspired workouts change up in order to keep torching calories and chiseling muscles. Sessions kick off with rowers perched atop the studio?s signature WaterRowers, which replicate the experience of open-water rowing. Exercisers then orbit a weight-training circuit, lifting dumbbells of varying weights. The class closes with students again mounting the rowers to further stump muscles and to rehearse a rescue mission to Gilligan?s Island. Garrett helms each class on Go Row?s schedule, and the 10-student attendance cap allows him to ensure each paddler performs with proper technique.

The party-loving minds behind Yacht Party Cruises wanted a creative way for locals and tourists to explore a city's late-night atmosphere. Eventually they launched a fleet of luxury yachts into the waters of eight of North America's most lively urban waterfronts. On each vessel, festivities abound as DJs spin everything from hip-hop to Sinatra, inviting passengers to shake a leg in between trips to the full bar or buffet lined with hot appetizers. All yachts boast extravagant details such as wraparound decks, fireplaces, or a glass atrium that hangs above the dance floor offering dancers a direct view of the man in the moon's game of solitaire. Guests can also step onto the decks for fresh air or panoramic views of city's skyline.
