Sight-see and Explore: Northwestern New York State.
When in the northeastern portion of the United States and one is seeking unique topography and interesting scenery, I suggest visiting and staying in the Rochester, New York area and setting-out on day/road trips from there. Be sure to take a ride down the easy-to-drive and interesting Lake Ontario State Parkway and definitely stop at one of the many state park areas which feature beaches on the massive Lake Ontario. From there, follow New York State Route 18 to Niagara Falls – which we all know is always worth a visit. Also from Rochester, it is an easy drive down Interstate 390 to New York’s Letchworth State Park – the “Grand Canyon of the East,” of which I have previously blogged. Northwestern New York State is always a fun trip regardless of the season of the year.
