Top 5 attractions in New York State

After visiting Nyc for 5 days in Sept, we will be travelling around the surrounding states. We have no idea about any hidden gems or must see things. If anyone can enlighten us that would be great.

You didn't indicate how long you will be traveling so I will give you ideas and you can research them to see how it may fit in.

New York State

Letchworth State Park

Ithaca, NY with waterfalls, wineries, and Cornell University

Cooperstown, NY with the Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers Museum, Fenimore House, a brewery and Lake Otsego

Chittenango Falls State Park.

From there get to I-90 East to I-87 North and go to Ausable Chasm which is beautiful and take the ferry to Burlington, Vt, and drive to beautiful Stowe, Vt. There are many resort hotels to choose from and we liked the Golden Eagle.

Ogunquit, Me. is a special place to if you fit it in.

Have a great trip.

In the northern part of NY State are the Adirondack Mountains. Lake George is a small town in the Adirondacks, also Lake Placid, home of the 1980 winter olympics. http://www.lakeplacid.com/ The drive up Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid is amazing. www.whiteface.com/newsite/summer/highway.php You can see Montreal from way up there. Also, historic Lake Champlain is in this region. It connects NYS to Vermont. You can take a ferry ride (with your auto) across the Lake: http://www.ferries.com/take_tour.asp#

Travelus and Ladydee have given you some great ideas. September is a great month for traveling in the Northeast. The weekend of September 20th is the Adirondack Balloon Fest. If you have the chance, try to fit it in: http://www.adirondackballoonfest.org/

Have a great trip!
