Visiting Sam's Point Preserve and Upper Delaware River will get you outdoors. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and New York Public Library. Venture out of the city with trips to Kerhonkson (Wightman's Fruit Farm & Minnewaska State Park Preserve), Quogue Wildlife Refuge (in Quogue) and Peconic River Herb Farm (in Calverton). There's lots more to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge, explore the activities along Delaware Water Gap, look for all kinds of wild species at Orange County Arboretum, and admire the sheer force of Bushkill Falls.
