Day Trip Adventures Out Of The Big Apple
By Lauren Craft
In New York City, the list of things to do and sights to see are endless but sometimes it’s nice to get out of the city and explore its surrounding locales.
If you’re looking for a thrill or just trying to enjoy what nature has to offer here are our favorite day trips that are just a zip car ride outside of the concrete jungle:
Hiking and Biking at Mohonk Mountain
For some light thrills and picturesque views, we suggest taking the day to head up to Mohonk Mountain Resort where you can spend the day hiking or biking through their gorgeous grounds at about $25.00 for the day.
From NYC by Car: Approx. 1 Hour and 40 mins
Zip from treetop to treetop while you take in the beauty of New York’s Catskill Mountains with New York Zipline Adventure’s Mid-Mountain Tour.
For a more daring excursion take the SkyRider Zipline Tour and experience the longest, fastest and highest Zipline Tour in North America where you’ll fly 600 feet off the ground. The views really don’t get much better!
From NYC by Car: Approx. 2 hours and 25 mins
If you’re not afraid to get a little misty, this is for you! Just 2 hours outside of Manhattan, experience the wild whitewater rapids you won’t find on the Hudson!
From NYC by Car: Approx. 2 Hours
Warning: this quest is for daredevils only! See the New York City skyline like you’ve never seen it before as you jump from an airplane at 13,500 ft. in eastern Long Island!
From NYC by Car: Approx. 1 hour and 25 minutes
