New York’s Palisades

By Linda Tancs

On the west side of the Hudson River, New York’s Palisades region is rich in spectacular views. That’s especially true at Bear Mountain State Park. Situated in rugged mountains, you’ll enjoy panoramic vistas from Perkins Memorial Tower (in season). This time of year appeals to cross-country skiers and ice skaters, but a year-round visit awaits at the Trailside Museums and Zoo. The attraction features native turtles, snakes, frogs, toads, salamanders, skinks and many species of fish along with geologic formations. The park is an easy day trip from New York City.
