Hello from New York! I’ve officially made the move up to live with Ryan in upstate New York for the remainder of the summer and I couldn’t be more excited to start camp and have some fun. For those of you who have been around these parts for a while, you might remember last year’s bucket list. Last summer, Ryan and I lived in Pittsburgh and I wanted to create a bucket list for us to make sure we did some cool things while we were in the area for such a long time. I’m proud to say that we nearly accomplished everything on that list. It was so much fun to document each bucket list item that I’ve decided to do round two this year!
Ryan and I are living in Fishkill which is a town that’s about an hour and a half train ride to NYC. While we hope to go there a few times this summer, I really want to do other things in the area as well! If you’re from this part of New York, let me know in the comments if there’s anything I should add to this list!
1. Hit up New York City
This one is a given, but there are so many places (mostly restaurants lol) that I’m dying to try!
2. Fahnestock State Park
This park is really close to where we’re living and there’s a campground, trails, a beach, and even boat rentals! Hopefully we’ll be able to get here more than once this summer.
3. Visit Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow is only an hour away from our apartment and it sounds like it’d be a really fun day trip!
4. Rochester, NY
5. Hudson, NY
6. Jones Beach State Park
Jones Beach is a little farther away from us, but it looks absolutely gorgeous, hopefully we can take a trip down at some point!
7. Bear Mountain State Park
As you can see, there are a TON of state parks around that look incredible. There are so many I want to see!
8. Seneca Falls
Hopefully I’ll be able to visit most (if not all!) of these places this summer. I’ll be updating this post with pictures and other fun anecdotes about our time there as the summer progresses, so be sure to follow along!
