Lake Placid is a welcome addition to the bountiful adventures New York State has to offer. Tucked away in the Adirondack Mountains, this area holds its place in history and people’s hearts.
New York State Parks keep amazing us with their abundant waterfalls, mountains, hiking, and gorgeous scenic views! On our quest to explore more of the state’s natural wonders, we planned a visit to Minnewaska State Park Preserve in the Hudson Valley– New York’s largest state preserve at 22,000 acres! Our spring visit was full of rushing waters, icy rocks, snowy foot paths, and a frozen lake. Our summer visit was a motivating exploration of the trails that led us to the highest scenic overlooks.
Kaaterskill Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls in the region. Renowned painters and photographers have depicted its beauty in a myriad of art pieces. It is a natural wonder that captivates all of its visitors. You can not help but take photos of and with this beau ideal of the Catskills, but remember to respect Mother Nature.
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!
