Labor Day weekend is a great time to get out into nature with family and friends in New York State. The long weekend offers more opportunities to explore while staying as local as possible. Near the Catskills? Go for a hike, a swim, or a mountain bike ride! Closer to Buffalo and Niagara Falls? Experience the region’s natural beauty and architectural history. Want to make a splash? Find a hidden beach in the Adirondacks or on Long Island. Here are options for Labor Day activities throughout New York State. Just remember to keep six feet apart from others not in your party and bring a mask or face covering to wear when it’s not possible to maintain social distancing. Call ahead and check websites and social media to make sure attractions are open and available; advance reservations may be required. Be advised that New York has a travel advisory in effect, which requires anyone traveling from certain states to quarantine for 14 days upon entering New York State.
