Take This Road Trip Through New York’s Most Picturesque Small Towns For An Unforgettable Experience

With the month of July almost entirely behind us, we’re finding ourselves a bit anxious to spend as much time outside as humanly possible. One of the best parts of summer is being able to roll your car windows down and enjoy a road trip to somewhere new you’ve yet to explore. While New York may be filled with an endless supply of charming small towns, for the sake of this road trip we focused on keeping the driving time under 11 hours and the town populations to under 10,000 residents. Bringing you through the Adirondack Mountains, out by the Thousand Islands, over to the Finger Lakes and down into the Catskills, we did our best to cover as many scenic regions for you as possible.
