After A Trip To The West Point Museum In New York, Get Outside And Explore Bear Mountain State Park

Did you know that it only takes about 90 minutes from New York City to reach West Point Military Academy and Bear Mountain State Park? Since these are two of the most popular destinations along the Hudson River, they’re the perfect combination if you’d like to spend the day learning and exploring in New York.

To reach the West Point Museum, take the Palisades Parkway or 1-87 for about an hour and a half if you’re coming from New York City. After you’ve had time at this historical museum, take route 9W North for about 10 minutes to get to Bear Mountain State Park.


To get started on planning your outing, visit the West Point Museum’s Facebook page for information on hours. In addition, you’ll find more information about what to do outside when you take a look at Bear Mountain State Park’s website.
