Watch Out, New York: More Ticks Than Usual Are Expected This Summer

New Yorkers, be wary! Experts are predicting that this year’s summer will bring about a lot of unwanted visitors: ticks. While winter was snowy, we had a pretty warm spring, so there are expected to be more ticks than usual this year. When enjoying the warm weather, be careful that you do not bring home any unwelcome stragglers!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
