Day Trips in New York State

Since this whole Covid-19 crap started it has really put a strain on trips. So I’ve been trying to come up with some fun things to do, it’s a challenge when your child is 17. So here’s a list that even he would enjoy.

Art Omi

We just went to Art Omi this passed weekend. It was fun, it was a little buggy though, but it’s outside and we didn’t run into anyone. Parking is cut down to half, so once the small parking lot is full they don’t let anyone in. It was only a half hour drive from where I live. I definitely need to go back again. Below are some pictures I took. Also this place is 100% free.

Christman Sanctuary

Christman Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary is a national historic district located near Delanson, Schenectady County, New York. The district includes six contributing buildings and one contributing structure on a largely wooded, rural 105-acre (42 ha) tract. It lies in the valley of the Bozenkill and includes a 30-foot (9.1 m) waterfall along the Helderberg Escarpment. Located on the property is a two-story frame dwelling built in 1868, a stone dairy house, barns, large stone walls, and an open lean-to built by the Mohawk Valley Hiking Club.

Just from the images it looks like a beautiful walk. This is a trip we are planning.

Albany-Hudson Electric Trail

They have been now working on the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail.

The AHET Trail will be a shared-use bicycling and pedestrian trail along the 35 mile Albany-Hudson Electric Trolley corridor from Hudson, NY to Rensselaer, NY – running through Rensselaer and Columbia Counties.

Scenic Drives

Then there’s also the infamous scenic drives. New York has the best drives, I always have loved them in the fall, but it’s good any time. Even better when you’re teaching your teenage how to drive.

Mohawk Towpath Scenic Byway

Mohawk Towpath Scenic Byway

The Mohawk Towpath Byway is a series of local, county and state highways that follow the historic route of the Erie Canal between Schenectady and Waterford/Cohoes in upstate New York. As one travels the Byway you unlock the story of the Mohawk River, Erie Canal, the waterway west and the part our communities played in the westward expansion of the country and the Industrial Revolution.
