Best Road Trips to Take out of NYC

roadtripBest Road Trips to Take out of NYC list from Bedford Jeep.

Not planned a vacation in ages? Ready for a quick getaway with your special someone? A road trip is perfect to spend time with loved ones, away from the hullabaloo of New York. Here are some of the places you can visit:


If you look beyond the polo matches of Greenwich and Frank Pepe pizza in New Haven, there is a beautiful and quaint village in the Northwest hills of Litchfield County that is worth getting all romantic in. This is off-the-beaten-path at its best: hike a waterfall in Kent Falls State Park, dine on some PBR-steamed mussels on the patio at Gifford’s, and lounge by the pool and cozy up by the fire at the Inn at Kent Falls. 

Lake George 

Summer is perhaps the best time to plan a camping trip to Lake George, home to 395 islands and countless ways to enjoy a memorable late-summer adventure, but you actually have until mid-October to book a site. The weather is ideal in September though boat traffic and tents have dwindled and the leaves are a mix of green, orange, and red. Rent a canoe at Bolton’s Landing then set out paddling with your camping gear for a woodsy waterfront spot among The Narrows. 

New Hope & Lambertville

Sitting on opposite sides of the Delaware River, the picturesque towns of New Hope, Pennsylvania, and Lambertville, New Jersey, are a favorite of many. You will come across art galleries, fantastic restaurants, one-of-a-kind shops, and general prettiness all around. This place is also full of cultural attractions like the historic New Hope & Ivyland Railroad, ghost tours and antique stores.


Toronto may occasionally be overshadowed by the city of festivals to the Northeast, but this transit-friendly town on the tip of Lake Ontario puts food on a pedestal and you in a sated state of mind. Besides Toronto’s Little Italy, Little India, Little Portugal, and two Chinatowns, markets like St. Lawrence are a grand affair here. Avisit to the Evergreen Brick Works Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings and taking breakfast along on the surrounding hiking trails are a must. For a taste of the Toronto sun any day of the week, there’s Sugar Beach, HTO Park, and Centre Island for a picnic and bike ride or, according to Kwan, you can head to the historic Distillery District, which doesn’t actually have a ton of distilleries, but does have great spots to eat and drink.
