Take This Epic Road Trip To Experience New York’s Great Outdoors

When it comes to creating road trips for you lovely readers of Only In New York, I often struggle with picking one region to hone in on. With a state as large as ours, it’s needless to say that there’s so much to see and do. In order to cover all the bases and showcase some of the most stunning parts of New York’s Great Outdoors, I’ve created two sets of road trips below. The first road trip falls in the eastern half of our state, taking you from up in the Adirondacks to down along the Shawangunk Ridge. While the second road trip you’ll find falls in our western half, starting out in Niagara Falls and bringing you to Central New York.
