Day Trips Around NY (NYC, Hudson Valley, Catskills, & Adirondacks)

If you decide to take some needed time off, and have little time or money to spend, you might want to consider a short trip that allows you to get away without breaking the bank or spending all day in the car. Even though you may have explored parts of New York City, the Hudson Valley, the Catskills, or the Adirondack areas previously, there are many things just waiting to be discovered. It's amazing how we take for granted the abundant beauty in our own backyard. If you'd like to explore the majestic beauty and quirky nature that our great state of New York has to offer, Somers Library can help by providing a wide variety of travel resources.
