I have a confession to make…
I love spending time with my college girlfriends, but attempting to make plans, with all 6 of them, is sometimes a struggle. We often only agree on two things: Food and Wine!

So when planning a memorable girls’ weekend, I was happy to see that we all agreed on visiting ‘Storm King Art Center’ in New Windsor, NY.

Why Storm King Art Center?

Storm King Art Center is like no other place. It houses some of the most glorious sculptures one will ever see in the area.

Our visit to Storm King Art Center happened on a chilly November afternoon when my girlfriends (many are artists themselves) and I went to see what exhibits were on display. As a photographer, I immediately felt inspired when arriving at Storm King and fell in LOVE!

According to their Website:
“Widely celebrated as one of the world’s leading sculpture parks, Storm King Art Center has welcomed visitors from across the globe for more than fifty years. It is located only one hour north of New York City, in the lower Hudson Valley, where its 500-acre landscape of fields, hills, and woodlands provides the setting for a collection of more than 100 carefully sited sculptures created by some of the most acclaimed artists of our time.”

We love exploring the various walkways and trails. Everywhere you turn, there is something to see.

Because there is such a large area to cover, Storm King also offers Bike Rentals for those who prefer to ride between exhibits. We walked and, I can tell you, that it’s a lot to cover in one visit alone.
