10 Best & Beautiful Afternoon Drives in Upstate NY

There is absolutely nothing like taking a look at your day organizer and seeing, in some way, that you have actually absolutely nothing prepared for the day.Road Trip!

I like an afternoon drive as much as the next individual. OK, so not a lot in the winter season, however for the other 3 seasons Upstate New York has a wide variety of sensational and historical afternoon drive paths to fit your fancy. From the Hudson Valley to the Finger Lakes though Central New York and (obviously) along the highways and byways of the Adirondacks and Catskill mountains, our area’s backroads are incredible!

Here is a list of 10 curated afternoon journey. Some are brief (15 miles) others are a bit longer (80 miles). But all will be time well invested. Who can withstand riding along the sensationalSt Lawrence River and picking up lunch in historical Clayton? Or sweeping up the Genesee Valley on I-390 as it curves up from the Southern Tier to Rochester? These and others are here for your picking. Restaurants and historical highlights have actually been consisted of in this post.

So, get in the cars and truck and go!Now is the time to take a best afternoon journey in our own backyard…UpstateNew York.
