3 Must-Take Road Trips in New York

Driving a car

Those of us at Sharon Chevrolet love driving our Chevrolet vehicles to new places. So, we’re always looking for memorable destinations and excuses for taking our cars out into the world. These three road trips in New York are some of our favorite drives to take—especially now that the weather is warming up again.

Route 7 from Binghamton to Capital Region

There are many charming little towns in New York. Some of the best road trips are those that will give you an excuse to venture through areas like Unadilla and Bainbridge. Route 7 will do just that, and will also take you past Howe Caverns, the perfect stop-off for beginning spelunkers.

Taconic State Parkway

If you’re into views as much as you are into destinations, then the Taconic State Parkway in Hudson Valley won’t let you down. You’ll see beautiful scenes of the Catskill Mountains and the Berkshires. There are plenty of unique places to stop for a bite to eat along the way.

I-86 Beer Trail

There’s a New York road trip for everyone—even the beer connoisseur. If you stick to I-86, you’ll have the opportunity to stop at up to 19 breweries. Just be sure to pace yourself or book a few bed and breakfasts along the way!
