New York City
Whether you’re new to New York, or you visit the city frequently, The Big Apple always has a timeless appeal that will keep you constantly surprised. Spend an afternoon strolling through Central Park,
with its picturesque bridges and ponds. The park is also home to a vast range of statues and many famous spots you'll remember from the movies.
A visit to New York City isn’t complete without visiting Times Square
. Its flashing luminescent billboards are quite the contrast from Central Park, but it’s just as exciting. Take lots of photos, and your friends and families back home will know exactly where you are!
Don’t forget to spend some time at the lesser known spots in New York City—While you’re going from landmark to landmark, make sure to stop by one of its many coffee shops, cafes, stores, and more. Try Ed’s Lobster Bar
. It’s got all the seafood that the East Coast is famous for, and is sure to keep you fueled during all your adventures.
Balance the rush of the big city with the tranquility of Adirondack Park. The park is a vast amount of land that’s completely free to use. Get in touch with your wild side and camp for a few nights, or treat yourself and stay at one of the hotels in the Adirondacks.
There are all sorts of hikes, from straight forward walks around the area, to climbs up to Mount Marcy’s summit
, which is the highest peak in New York.
If hiking isn’t quite your thing, give one of the Adirondack’s 3,000 lakes a try. You can kayak, paddleboard, fish, and more, and the park is so big that you’re sure to find your own spot. If you prefer water that moves faster, raft down the Hudson river during your trip. There’s something for any outdoor lover at the Adirondacks.
Check this one off your list of things to do. All the photos and the videos in the world couldn't do Niagara Falls
justice, so make sure to see the falls yourself. Either hike around the park to see the falls, or buy boat tickets to get a front-row seat. The falls are great on their own, but give yourself time to explore the park’s 400 acres of protected landscape.
Make a weekend out of it, and also visit Niagara’s vineyards
. The Niagara area has more than twenty wineries that offer tastings and related events that are sure to help you unwind. Check out Black Willow Winery
– It’s right by the water, and in addition to a wide selection of wines, it’s got various artisan oils and vinegars.
