Best Road Trips from NYC

Philadelphia: Just 1.5 hours south of NYC is historic Philadelphia. Visit the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall or get some culture at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Then stop at Reading Terminal Market for a bite to eat.
Storm King Art Center: This 500-acre outdoor sculpture park is less than a 2-hour drive from NYC. It sits just outside Cornwall, NY, and is a great place to be out in nature while gazing at the large sculptures.
Bear Mountain State Park: Drive just over 1 hour and go hiking or skiing at Bear Mountain. Have a picnic or hike the oldest section of the Appalachian Trail.
Niagara Falls: Head northwest from NYC through Pennsylvania and western New York before arriving at the “8th wonder of the world”, Niagara Falls. Once there you can hop on a boat and get soaked by the mist from the awe-inspiring falls.
Boston, MA: Drive a few hours north and visit one of the oldest cities in the US where many historic events took place. Walk around Boston Harbor and catch a Red Sox game at Fenway Park if you visit during baseball season.
