While NYC is known for its tourist attractions, lately I’ve been gravitating towards the little details along the streets. Whether it be a wall, a mural, or a cute storefront, it’s amazing how much more you notice when you take a moment to look up and observe what’s around you.
For those who live in a big city, sometimes an escape to nature is just what we need. Over the Fourth of July long weekend we decided to drive out to Pennsylvania for a day in the Pocono Mountains.
This Fourth of July weekend I decided to go on a couple of day trips around the NYC area. Despite having lived here almost all my life, there is so much I have yet to see! Our first day of explorations took us to the beautiful Catskill Mountains, home to Kaaterskill Falls, the tallest waterfall in New York State. What a crazy adventure it was!
