New York City, The Big Apple, The City that Never Sleeps—these are the names that come to mind for many when you mention New York. And truly, it's a city like no other. A melting pot and cultural hub, you can always find something to do, be it indoors or out, whether it's museums and a show, walking tours, Central Park, or exploring other boroughs like Brooklyn. However, if you stay in the city you're missing out on so much more that New York has to offer. It doesn't matter whether you live on Long Island, in Manhattan, or anywhere else, the great outdoors is meant to be enjoyed. Pack your bags and head to upstate with one of these mountain getaways. From western New York and the Finger Lakes to the Adirondack Mountains and the Hudson River Valley, New York's natural landscapes are not to be missed.
