Yonkers vacation rentals

Welcome to New York’s Sixth Borough

Yonkers may be a stone’s throw from New York City, but this is no mere afterthought compared to the Big Apple. The sheer wealth of things to do has led to it being nicknamed the “Sixth Borough” by some, so take a look at the Yonkers vacation rentals on offer and prepare to make your base in this rising star of a community. You can find red-roofed, Mediterranean villa-style pads, or trendy loft spaces in converted 19th-century buildings, all within strolling distance of major Yonkers attractions, from the vibrant, multi-ethnic restaurants to the beguiling outdoor spaces where you can while away sunny afternoons.

Shopping and exploring in Yonkers

To really get acquainted with the area, you may want to head over to Getty Square after you settle into your Yonkers vacation rental. This is the beating heart of the region, where you can shop, eat, and mingle with all the locals. You’ll experience a complete contrast over in tranquil Tibbett Brook Park, where trees and greenery stretch for over 160 acres. A more ornate and ornamental green space is Untermyer Park, which features a walled, Persian-style paradise garden, and a round temple overlooking the Hudson which evokes images from fairy tales.

Getting a culture fix in Yonkers

Thought you had to head over to NYC for art and culture? Yonkers might just surprise you. One strikingly creative attraction close to Yonkers vacation rentals is the Hudson River Museum, where works encompass colorful depictions of the New York landscape, as well as the avant-garde visions of bold, contemporary artists. And, just to blow minds further, the complex even has its own planetarium. Meanwhile, kids will relish a trip to the Legoland Discovery Center, which has zany rides, a 4D cinema, and a special factory tour which reveals how the iconic bricks are actually made.

Year-round vacations in Yonkers

So, when’s the best time to book one of the Yonkers vacation rentals? Whether you’re heading over to explore Westchester County itself, or are mainly seeking a cozy base from which to discover the Big Apple, it’s never not a good a time to visit. However, there’s certainly something to be said for coming in spring, because this is when the cherry blossoms of Redmond Park come to vivid, purple-pink life. Summer is also a good time to visit – it’s when outdoor attractions like Untermyer Park are at their most enchanting, and there will be plenty of family-friendly activities to get stuck into along the river.

A riverside escape to Yonkers

Situated just to the north of New York City, Yonkers is spread out alongside the mighty Hudson River. Its rippling waters are a focal point for activities here, and you should keep an eye out for unique river landmarks like the Science Barge – a fascinating urban farm right on the Hudson itself. Away from the waterfront, you’ll be charmed by idyllic green spaces that sparkle in the sun, and may find you’ll spend as much time here as you do amid the skyscrapers of Manhattan.
