If you’re not from New York State, you may have no idea that the state’s 47,836 square miles of land north of New York City contain some of the most picturesque places in the nation. The I-87 corridor, for example—“The Adirondack Northway” to upstate residents—once earned the praise of Parade magazine as America’s most scenic highway. You can access many of the state’s waterfalls from this majestic road as it winds through the mountains, meandering by Lake Placid, Lake George, and a number of other sparkling gems.
