nat_geo_smallJust 30 miles north of New York City sitting on Hudson River you’ll find Rockland County—known for its quaint villages, spectacular river views, outdoor recreation.

So close to the bustling city, Rockland is everybody’s playground. There are no less than 32,000 acres of untouched parklands dotted with sparkling lakes and streams rushing down to the Hudson. Mile after mile of marked trails lead you right to the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains. There are all kinds of recreational opportunities: swimming and fishing, hiking and boating, camping, horseback riding, historic house tours, golf and tennis in Spring and Summer. Ice skating, sledding, and cross-country skiing in Winter. And a magnificent foliage display every Fall.
