6 Towns in New York to Visit for the Day​ by Car

Since COVID is still yet to leave our lives, people can't do certain things like go to the movies, the museums anymore. So many of us should take the chance to go places where there aren't that many people and explore.

6 Towns in New York to Visit for the Day​ by Car

While in these places or traveling in general, please remain safe; maintain social distancing requirements, try to avoid staying inside places for long periods of time, and most importantly, wash your hands when you go outside.

1. Owego:

This is a cute little town about 20-30 minutes from Binghamton NY. My boyfriend and I have gone there just recently to look at the antique stores. It is getting a little colder now, so try to go now before it gets colder.

2. Ithaca:

Even though it's getting colder outside, there is still a chance to catch the changing leaves. Also, Ithaca is a nice town that is right next to Cornell University.

3. Roosevelt Island:

I have gone many times to Roosevelt Island when I am at home. It is beautiful during the summer and it is still nice even in the winter. One of my good friends from high school also lives there which is mainly why I go there.

5. Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow:

When I was younger, I used to go with my family to Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow in October and it was beautiful. All the trees changing color and also the spooky atmosphere when you get into Sleepy Hollow (or at least I liked to pretend it was) is a great place to go especially now in the fall.

6. Corning:

This is another place that is more upstate but also a cute town. However, this place is best known for glass making. I went here when I was a kid and it was amazing. I am not sure if you can still see glass making, however, the town has plenty of shops and is right near a harbor.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
