Family destination around New York – 1 Hour Drives

Alstede FarmsIt is the end of Devam’s first year at school. Time for summer break, a 3 month period to explore, experience and enjoy something different besides school. We plan to visit several destinations in and around New York. Besides researching new destinations there are some that we look forward to visiting again and again.

I am listing our few favorite destinations:

1) Bear Mountain State Park

2) Norwalk, CT
- Stepping Stones Museum
- Maritime Aquarium

3) New Jersey, NJ
- Liberty Science Center
- Alstede Farms

These destinations are about one hour drive from New York. They are great destinations for age groups of 2-7 years old and perfect destinations for an entire family.

Note: When visiting farms it is most advisable to call them in advance to confirm their pick-your-own schedule and the best hours to visit the farm. I usually like to get to farms early in the morning and leave by noon.

Happy Travels,
Titter
