The perfect plan for the last weekend in July is a staycation right in Queens at LIC Flea & Food.
Open on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., the LIC Flea offers amazing food, shopping for unique finds and a craft beer and wine garden overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
While everyone is sitting in traffic you can kick back and drink some rosé or a craft brew while dining on chicken, beef or cheese empanadas from Empanada Papa or maybe some fresh oysters from Speedy Oyster Shuckers.
