New York State holiday, USA
Description of New York State holiday, USA
New York City is one of the most popular cities to visit in the USA, but many visitors pass by the rest of New York State, which has much to explore and discover.
This itinerary begins by taking in the magnificent Niagara Falls before heading inland into New York State. Spend time in the tranquil Finger Lakes region, where you can enjoy a boat trip out on the water.
You can also taste some of the state's finest wines in the Ithaca wine producing region and follow hiking trails through the beautiful Adirondack Mountains, home to beavers, Canadian lynx and ospreys. Your trip finishes up in New York City with plenty of time for you to soak up all the 'Big Apple' has to offer.
PlanetThere are some great opportunities for getting off the beaten track in New York State, especially in such unspoilt regions such as the Adirondack Mountains and the Finger Lakes. We are committed to the preservation of these pristine environments and in promoting “no-trace” tourism – ensuring visitors are able to enjoy and learn from their visit whilst ensuring their visit does not have a detrimental impact. We strive to ensure these beautiful areas offer sustainable boardwalks and designated walking paths and that local suppliers of outdoor adventure activities such as canoeing and mountain biking conform to sustainable environmental practices. Whilst some parts of the state are very difficult to reach without a hire car, some parts are easily reached by public transport; trains to various places in up-state New York offer an attractive sustainable alternative to driving for many visitors. We can also offer walking, segway and sailing boat tours of New York City – far more sustainable ways of exploring the city.
PeopleWe are committed to encouraging sustainable tourism within New York State, so that local people are able to benefit from visitors to the region. We provide all our clients with suggestions for restaurants that are locally owned and run, and that offer a commitment to source local produce. We also like to promote local farmers’ markets, wineries, and independent shops that sustain local livelihoods, all of which ensures that local people benefit from tourism, and that every visitor contributes to the local economy.
