Based on their research, it was determined that Sunday, July 17th will be the most perfect day in the state of New York this year, and by extension, the most perfect day in the Capital Region.

If you're looking to visit other states in the Northeast on their respective perfect days, then this week is likely the week to do it. Maine's perfect day hits on July 11th, Massachusetts happens on the 16th, Rhode Island also on the 17th, and Connecticut on the 18th. If you're busy this week, try visiting Pennsylvania on the 20th and New Jersey on the 21st.
