Great Places to Visit

Whatever the time of year you visit New York state, you will have a wide variety of ways to pass the time – all within a few hours of its buzzing city core.

Start Spreading the News…

A visit to New York state wouldn’t be complete without a trip to its iconic namesake city. As one of the most visited cities in the world, New York is home to all manner of attractions, landmarks and notable sights that you can tick off your must-see list, including the Empire State Building, Central Park and Fifth Avenue.

Hike into the Mountains

New York is a treasure trove for outdoor lovers, and hiking, walking and biking are great ways of enjoying the varied scenery. Protected landscapes such as the Finger Lakes, the Erie Canalway Trail and Catskill Park are all picturesque and unspoilt playgrounds, and great alternatives to the hustle bustle of the city.

Look Across to Canada

The mesmerising Niagara Falls separates New York from Ontario in Canada, and is definitely up there as one of the most breathtaking American (and Canadian) must-sees. View the falls from the walkways of Prospect Point Park, head to the observation tower, or board the Maid of the Mist for a boat trip that is simply unforgettable.

Relax on the Beaches of Long Island

Celeb spot in The Hamptons, or opt for the beautiful area of Montauk and make the most of the stunning coastline on offer. The golden sands are perfect to kick back on during the summer months, and offer visitors a chance to truly unwind. Learn to surf, tuck into some seafood, or chill out to the sound of the waves crashing in.

Getting Around

The state of New York is massive, but driving is still a plausible way of getting around if you like the flexibility of a self-drive. Amtrak trains link the five major cities in the state, too. There are also various bus services within the cities to help you to get around, and cabs are plentiful if you prefer their convenience.

By Bus

There is an excellent bus service in both upstate and downstate New York. Trailways offers comfortable long haul services, while there are also local bus routes in and around the major cities and towns.

By Car

Having your own set of wheels is by far the easiest way of exploring the state, and car hire is simple. The interstates and highways are in great condition. Remember to stick to the right hand side.
