I created GetOutsideNYC.com to give people living in New York City or anywhere else in the Tri-state area the most comprehensive list available of everything there is to do and see outdoors within approximately a three hour drive of New York City. From the stunning landscapes of New York's Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains to the fun of the Jersey Shore and the diversity of Connecticut I hope this website will inspire you to explore and experience all that the outdoors has to offer in the Tri-state area and that you will be as moved by the area's natural beauty as I am.
This website is and will always be a work in progress so please visit often as I will add new categories as frequently as possible. I will also update the photo blog below as time allows. Sometimes that will be often and sometimes that will be quite intermittently. I welcome all comments and suggestions so please don't hesitate to contact me.
Today I came across approximatley 60 Red Efts in various palces along an approximately 2 mile section of the carriage trail at Mills Mansion in Rhinebeck, NY. The Red Eft is a salamander and is the terrestrial stage of the Eastern Newt.
