Get Your Outdoor Fix At These 8 State Parks In New York

We all need to get away from everything every once in a while. Escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life can do wonders for your mental health. Even if you don’t have time to get away for a few days, most of us can carve out a few hours to spend in nature. We are lucky to live somewhere with as many state parks as the Empire State. We have 180 state parks in New York, spread all throughout the land. No matter what season it is, these are great places to get out and enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
