Since my son has become a teenager, it has become harder to find affordable things to do during the summer. He does go to a summer camp, but it’s only a few hours a day. Plus it’s pricey. So I’ve been trying to come up with some ideas for close trips. Every time I put in New York it always gives me NYC. As a New Yorker, NYC is not the same. There is a huge state. Upstate is beautiful. The state parks, hiking. It’s endless. So I’ve been trying to come up with ideas. I live around the Albany area so most things are within a few hours. I’m close to the border of Massachusetts too. Here are some of the places I enjoy.
- New York State Museum
- Baseball Hall of Fame
- Albany Institute of History & Art – Official Site
- Iroquois Indian Museum
I will add more as I think of some. If you have any ideas please let me know.
