Off The Beaten Path While Visiting New York City

Apr 22, 2008
When people visit New York City on vacation, it is always common to go to Ellis Island and see the statue of Liberty. Many people like to take in a Broadway show of some kind just to have the experience. New York City is a large place filled with many different things to do and a lot of interesting sites can be overshadowed on a trip by using all your vacation time seeing the most common ones.

If you have already visited New York City in the past and have already seen a lot of the most popular places, then a second trip might allow you to check out some other things that will be just as interesting. Sometimes the lesser known attractions will be more entertaining than the most well known places. Many of these places will have to be driven to a could take a few hours.

For example, you might be interested in touring The American Museum of Fire Fighting. Here you can learn about fire fighting history and see exhibits of antique fire engines and equipment from the 1700's until now. It is a great museum for anyone interested in fire fighting.

There is also a National Museum of Racing that is dedicated to the sport of horse racing. It is filled with trophies, pictures, and other racing memorabilia that will thrill any horse racing fan or horse lover.

There are two automobile museums that car lovers will like to visit. The Saratoga Automobile Museum was opened in 2002 and has many beautiful cars displayed as well as The Yankee Candle Car Museum that offers over 80 beautiful models in pristine condition to gaze upon.

If you love the idea of visiting some castles, who would have thought that there would be so many near New York City? Although you might have to do a little driving from the city to get to see these beautiful castle like, historic homes, they will probably be worth the effort.

There is Gillette Castle, Boldt Castle, Hammond Castle, Wilson Castle, and even more. Seeing some of these magnificent homes could be a wonderfully relaxing way to relax with a little touring of the countryside and home viewing.

If you do more internet investigating you will find that there are so many out of the way laces of interest that are not right in the city. It is always a good idea to visit some of the more out of the way places because you will take home more than just the experience of seeing the same old sites that most tourist do.
