I've been noticing lately that there are actually a lot of really cool things to do in NY's Capital District
There are still a ton more hikes around the area I haven't done and want to check out - including Plotter Kill Preserve
. And I still want to see at least some of the Petrified Sea Garden
in Saratoga Springs.
Not to mention weekend trips on the to-do list: Atlantic City, and Toronto. And NYC is always fun.
I guess my point is that I read about a lot of destinations but it's fun to read about your home as a destination too, since you don't always consider it to be one. I found this 2006 New York Times travel piece on
Troy, NY and the city was recently featured in the Daily News.
Sometimes it takes reading about our seemingly-small hometown in a big publication to get a clear perspective on what's right in front of you.
