Jackson Heights Vacation Packages
Jackson Heights is near a diverse collection of New York’s attractions. Two destinations that should be on every visitor’s itinerary is the wonderful Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center and the ever-popular Queens Center Mall. Also worth checking out are the New York Hall of Science and Queens Zoo.
New York is known as home to the legendary the Statue of Liberty. It is only 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the middle of town.
Spend some time in the center of New York. Enjoy the Empire State Building and Times Square. The Chrysler Building and the Grand Central Terminal are another two attractions in the city centre worth seeing if you’re keen to truly scratch the surface of this amazing city.

When it’s time escape the city, visit the nearby green spaces. Take some time out to enjoy the cool shade in public parks such as Astoria Park in Astoria, the Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City and the Queens Botanical Garden in Flushing.
See if you can hit a hole in one at the Flushing Meadows Park Pitch and Putt in Flushing.
Those with a love of soccer will love the energy at iconic Belson Stadium, Jamaica, the home of local favorites the St. John's University Red Storm Men's and the much-loved St. John's University Red Storm Women's.
