There are 24 National Park Service sites in the state of New York, but 11 of them are in New York City. Because of this fact, the 13 that are elsewhere in the state are often overlooked by visitors. This is unfortunate because many of these sites that are outside the city limits are rich with history and those who visit will learn so much that they never knew before. You can visit 7 of these lesser-visited sites on this two-day road trip. You’ll take a drive and a walk through American history along the way.

As you can see, this road trip is an incredible and informative walk through American history. Along the way, you’ll visit the homes of the 8th president and the 26th. You’ll learn about colonial history, the Revolutionary War, early American painters, the Guilded Age, and the women’s rights movement. You will be amazed at all you learned and saw in just two days. Have a great trip!
