We took our newborn out for a stroll in one of my favorite state parks — Borderland in Easton. On a cool late summer day, there isn’t a nicer place to have a picnic, take a nap, or walk the trails than this 1,600-acre former Ames family estate.
On a recent visit, I learned that the late, great Paris Review editor George Plimpton spent holidays at Borderland as a child. His full name — George Ames Plimpton.
If you are bringing the baby, know that there are no paved paths at Borderland. You’ll want to carry her in a Bjorn or sling or you’re little one will be in for a very bumpy carriage ride.

    This is also a great place to walk dogs (if you have them). My girlfriend and I were here two Sundays ago and it really is a wonderful place to visit.
