Once you travel outside of New York City, it’s easy to encounter more natural surroundings. Whether you live in the big city and are looking to see something other than skyscrapers in the horizon, or you’re traveling from out of state, make sure you book your rustic A-frame cabin as a home away from home. Search for amenities like a DVD player, wood burning stove, fireplace or hot tub to make your stay perfectly comfortable. New York boasts of plenty of options for outdoor activity. Enjoy backcountry skiing in the Adirondacks. Take a paddle board or canoe on one of the many lakes in the Finger Lakes region. Take a foliage tour throughout Allegany State Park, or descend into a grotto at Natural Stone Bridge. With so many parks around the state, it will be hard to choose just one place to go!
