Talk of kayaking in Seattle, skiing in Colorado, golfing in Palm Springs, or hiking up in Maine sure can get under the skin. It’s not as if New York City has no outdoor recreation. You can paddle in a kayak on the Hudson River for free at Pier 26 or fly through the air at the riverfront trapeze school downtown.

WHERE TO STAY The Hunter Mountain website provides details on and links to area hotels, motels, and B&Bs, or you can call their reservation hot line at ¬ 800/775-4641 for lodging options.
