11. Take a scenic walk from Manly to Spit
It’s nearly a four-hour commitment, but the hike boasts incredible waterside views that are well worth it. End your exodus with a rewarding pint at 4 Pines Brewing Company.
This club’s proximity to the ocean (it’s right next door) makes it the best spot for lawn bowling in the city. Kick off your shoes and enjoy an afternoon of barefoot bowls for just $12.
On the off chance you’re more of an indoor bowling type, The Standard is your move. Outfitted with lanes, pinball machines, and pool tables, as well as (free) live music, this bar and music venue’s revamp was inspired by the proprietor’s trip to Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg.
14. Visit the Chinatown night market
Every Friday at 4pm, Dixon St is transformed into a bustling market with more than 65 stalls hawking everything from food to handmade jewelry. Even if you don’t buy anything, the visit alone is an experience worth having.
