The 6 Things to Do This Memorial Day Weekend in Rockland County (SO that the Coronavirus CANNOT Ruin

I know what everyone expects from a Physical Therapist who says that I have 6 things for you to do this weekend…

…you are all thinking that I am going to give you 6 exercises to stay healthy…

…BUT not this time.

I really want you all to get back to the activities that you love, and I know that this Memorial Day Weekend will be unlike any that we have ever seen!

The good news is that there are still 6 activities that you can do that do not include the beach or the yard. (Although, the yard could keep you busy all weekend, but haven’t we all had too much time to be working on the yard).

1. Walk the Lake

Congers Lake and Rockland Lake are OPEN. This has been the standby activity over the last couple months while we are all in quarantine.

There are some of you who haven’t made it to either of these Lakes lately. They are in full bloom and just a great outdoor activity. Take a walk or go for a jog and enjoy the fresh air and peace and tranquility that only a lake can provide.

Just make sure you follow your social distancing procedures by entering in the correct entrance and following the posted one-way signs.

2. Hike the Hook

The 61-acre Nyack Beach State Park boasts a riverfront trail the runs from Nyack to Haverstraw along the Hudson River with spectacular views. There is also a trail that takes you to the top of Hook Mountain.

3. Walk over the Hudson

Haven’t had enough of the Hudson River? How about taking a walk over it?

Check out “The Worlds Longest Elevated Pedestrian Bridge” from Highland to Poughkeepsie< NY.

The Walkway Over the Hudson entrance is located at 87 Haviland Road, Highland NY 12528 and is open from 7 am until Sunset.
