Nature - Resorts and Lodges in New York
Those travelers who consider the state of New York to simply be an extension of New York City may not think of The Empire State to be a nature getaway destination. However, outside the bright lights is a whole different world exemplified by the natural beauty of the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains, the Finger Lakes region, and so much more. There are 180 state parks spread out across New York. Check out Bethpage State Park, home to the famous Bethpage State Park Black Golf Course. When you are done with Bethpage, head to other great areas like Lake Erie State Park, Franklin Delano Roosevelt State Park, and Roberto Clemente State Park. The Finger Lakes National Forest is another great spot for outdoor exploration in New York. Situated between the Seneca and Cayuga Lakes, and measuring only 16,259 acres, it is actually one of the nation’s smallest National Forests. Get in touch with nature the next time you are planning a trip to New York.
