It’s no secret that our family has a special place in our hearts for New York, but what’s not to love? Here’s our list of some great adventures that get you out, get you moving, and speak to your soul! We’ve included something from each region of the state to keep your adventuring going strong. If you thought New York was just the hustle and bustle of city life, then you’re in for a surprise.
We made a plan to see the first sunrise in the country at Acadia National Park, the easternmost part of the east coast, on Black Friday. Our family pledged to spend this day outside enjoying nature to its fullest extent instead of engaging in the riotous act of shopping.
The Sunken Forest located in Sailor’s Haven on Fire Island is a rarity even by global standards. “According to the New York Natural Heritage Program, the Sunken Forest was ranked as ‘globally rare,’ meaning there are few remaining occurrences of this assemblage of plants throughout the world.”
When you’re a family out looking for adventure, Pisgah National Forest is a win. We visited Pisgah in early July during our two week East coast road trip. We were not disappointed. In fact, we’d love to visit again and explore more!
