Let's go on an adventure.

Instead of sitting on the couch this Saturday, take a drive for 20 minutes or a couple hours to any of these spots with your friends. Bring some food for a picnic, some beer and hang out and take a dip in on of the best eight natural swimming holes in New York State. Now, you already know that Western New York is home to the best waterfall in the United States, but of course you can't exactly go swimming in Niagara Falls, although some have tried.

Let's give you some ideas of where you should try going on your next day off for an absolutely beautiful adventure.
