General purpose: To inform the audience about the various adventures they could partake in without traveling far outside New York.
A. Tired of the crowded subways and loud streets? Do city skylines and tourist spots bore you? Well, adventure and nature is closer than you think. Even though we live in the city, various companies have made it pretty simple to escape the city life with ease.

Different hiking paths include exploring the natural habitats of various animals such as wolves and raccoons. They include breathtaking views and like mentioned before food and wine. Hikes depart from various places in the city and costs anywhere from $60 to $100. All trips include transportation. b. If you are not into hiking there are also trips maybe you would enjoy such as the horseback riding and wine tasting escape package. Imagine riding through wide-open fields for two hours and then driving to a beautiful vineyard in the Hudson Valley for a wine tasting. For $140 you could enjoy the horses and samples of reds and whites along with some of the best ciders in America. Finish up this trip with a stroll though the orchard grounds and come back to the city refreshed and relaxed. c. If you don’t like horses maybe you would fancy the apple and pumpkin picking and fall foliage hike....
