One of the reasons I love living in upstate New York are all of the beautiful parks that are so close to my new home! Now you can enjoy them for less with a great deal on a 3 Year Empire Passport ($130 instead of $165) only on Cyber Monday (December 1st)! According to WKBW:

An Empire Passport gives unlimited vehicle access to all state parks, nature centers, recreation areas, boat launches, arboretums and preserves, plus 55 forest preserve sites operated by the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

I took a ride through the Saratoga Spa State Park last weekend and it normally costs $8 to get in so you would save with the pass and they do fun events all year long including the stocking of Geyser Creek!
