There are some places every traveler should visit at least once in their lifetime, and the state of New York is one of them. While many immediately associate it with New York City, there are plenty of amazing places to discover besides the Big Apple. Travelers can venture outside the city and embark on some of the best waterfall hikes in New York or visit one of the national parks. To make the experience even more memorable, opt for a unique place to stay instead of the classic hotel. There are plenty of glamping spots in Upstate New York and in other areas in the state, so why not try sleeping in a yurt? Here is a list of the best yurts in New York.

1. Yurt in Upstate New York, two hours from New York City (from USD 220)

The yurt also features indoor and outdoor kitchens, a spacious, fully furnished deck for evening gatherings, and a hot tub. Days here are best spent outdoors, hiking, swimming, or just sunbathing.
