New York City Outer Buroughs

The 'Outer Boroughs' of New York City are virtually free of high-rise buildings such as 'skyscrapers' and generally are not the place were you'll find the 'big corporation' headquarters, but you can be sure that in the 'Outer Boroughs' you'll have plenty of chances to discover that not-always-unveiled part of New York were the 'real thing' is happening.

The 'Outer Boroughs' are also the home place of a full range of galleries, museums, entertainment opportunities and much much more. In particular very few tourists visit places such as Coney Island or Staten Islands, even if the above mentioned are often described or mentioned in songs, novels etc.. and yet many still believe that Harlem is a dangerous squalid place filled with perpetual racial tensions where the only interesting thing to see is the Apollo Theater.

In particular Staten Island (take a look at it from South Street Seaport in Manhattan) -...guess what it is an island- is green, wide and full of interesting places that surely deserve a visit; we feel like suggesting Richmond in S.I., a small historic village that takes you back to the 'old times' of colonialism and independence where people in costumes will surely help you to feel more like you would have quite some years ago...read more about the outer buroughs of New York >>

Isn't this what a romantic getaway is all about?

One destination worth considering and offering all of the above and more is the quaint village of Lake Placid, located within the Adirondacks in the northern part of New York State...read more>>

Niagara Falls State Park
Designed by famed landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, Niagara Falls State Park is the oldest state park in America and one of the most famous, attracting visitors from all over the world.

At the Prospect Point end of the park you can board the Maid of the Mist boats for a close-up look at the Falls or walk along the base of them just feet from the pounding water at the Cave of the Winds on Goat Island. Terrapin Point and Prospect Point are just a couple of the favorite viewing platforms for fantastic views of the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls.

Visitors can stroll over the historic bridges at Three Sisters Islands for close-up views of the upper rapids as the river races toward the Falls. The park also features all the amenities you'd expect -- a restaurant, snack bars, gift shops, picnic tables, grills, hiking, nature trails and more.
