Storm King Arts Center

If you're looking for a great day trip, this place is the best kept secret away from NYC (they are 10 miles from Woodbury Commons).  It combines hiking (you can also rent a bike or ride a tram around the park), art work, and picture taking (nature or the numerous sculptures).  My favorite sculptures were the Three Legged Buddha and Suspended.

Parking is free and admission is $12 for adults and $8 for students.  They have a cafe on their premises, but you can either pack a picnic or go to Woody's afterwards.  If you're like us (we didn't pack water), there is a beverage vending machine by the elevators down to the tram - it was like seeing a mirage after walking around their vast 500 acre property).  There weren't that many people there, so get there before the secret is out.
