Some great places to visit

roadWant to go on a weekend getaway and leave all the stress and tension of daily life behind? Looking for a place to relax so you can come back and take charge after being refreshed and rested? There are numerous getaways from New York City that are situated within a 3-hour driving distance. Here are a few from Central Avenue Chrysler Jeep. Take a look:  

The Catskills

If you wish to get away from the hullabaloo of the city, and bask in scenic wilderness, the Catskills is where you should be headed. Located with a driving distance of 2 to 3 hours from NYC, this area is ideal for hiking in forests yielding stunning views, dipping in the area’s natural swimming holes, or zip-lining among the treetops, during the summer. If you go during winter, don’t miss out on skiing and snowshoeing. 

Bear Mountain

It will take you an hour to get there, but the effort is certainly worth it. Bear Mountain is an idyllic spot for hiking and picnicking. Besides offering sweeping view of upstate New York, the area also has a zoo, carousel, and pools. Hiking trails range from easy loops to more advanced and calve-aching bits of the Appalachian Trail.

Atlantic City

In the last few decades, the town has experienced resurgence in its popularity and managed to reclaim its lost glory of being a glitzy and glamorous destination. The Atlantic City Expressway and opening of the luxurious Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, the city’s most extravagant hotel have played an integral role. There are several restaurants with mouth-watering cuisine, decadent spas, and busy casinos at affordable rates!

Dutchess County 

Located at a short driving distance of less than 2 hours from the city, the area is famous for its outdoor adventures, spectacular scenery, historic mansions, and local cuisine. You can check in to the apricot-hued Glenmere Mansion, set amidst 150 rolling acres of lush farmland. The stunning interiors, architecture, and Italian villa style of the property will magically transport you straight to Tuscany. Don’t miss out on the museum Dia: Beacon and have coffee at Ground Hog Coffee. The crowning glory is the maple tour at Madava Farms, a maple farm focusing on sustainable syrup. Just like wine, maple syrup has various aging processes that dictate color, aroma, and dominant flavor profiles.

So next time you feel tired and exhausted due to work pressure, managing households, or any other reason, use it as an excuse to drive out and experience these wonderful places.
