What we're about

For a Full List of Events: http://www.NewYorKSocialNetwork.com

WE LOVE THE OUTDOORS! We have hikes, scavenger hunts, private tours, and so much more.

Imagine escaping the hustle and bustle of NYC and exploring unknown hike paths, roasting marshmallows at a bonfire, or just taking a wine tour upstate.

We have been doing this for over 17 years and we are excited to have you!

Don't worry about coming out alone, that's what many do... and you’ll walk away with new friends. You will always have a host to greet you and introduce you to other members of our events.
