Six Super New York Attractions

Jun 11, 2008
New York is a wondrous place. Most think of New York City when thinking of New York, but there are so many attractions up and down the state. Today, I will give you a list of six super attractions for your next New York trip.

Empire State Building

This has to be one of the most famous buildings in the world. Located at 5th Avenue and 34th Street, the Empire State Building offers amazing panoramic views of New York City. It's been in many movies, such as Elf and Sleepless in Seattle.

Saratoga Race Course

When you're in need of a break, take in some great horseracing action at the Saratoga Race Course. It's located in Saratoga Springs. They have horseracing from the end of July to the beginning of September. If you're a horseracing fanatic, stop by the Saratoga Harness Hall of Fame and Museum, which is also in Saratoga Springs.

Bronx Zoo

The Bronx Zoo is a perfect family attraction. There are more than 4,000 animals in this amazing zoo, which is the largest metropolitan zoo in the US. The "World of Darkness" is an interesting exhibit. It features all sorts of nocturnal animals, like bats. At just $14 for adults and $11 for kids, it's a great deal too!

Niagara Falls

If you're heading upstate, the Greater Niagara region makes for a perfect stop. Surely you've heard of Niagara Falls? If you want to get close to the beauty, take a journey on the Maid of the Mist. Just remember, this voyage gets you real close, so raingear is a must.

Splish Splash Water Park

The Splish Splash Water Park is a fun time. It's located in Riverhead (Long Island), New York in a 96-acre park like environment, nestled in the woods, which provides a lot of shades, and a lovely landscape.

The Travel Channel voted it as one of the best water parks. Splish Splash offers 25 thrilling water slide rides, some of them very tall and steep. It's a fun time for the whole family.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of art is an absolutely must-see attraction when you're visiting New York City. It's part of the famous Museum Mile. The amazing display of over two million works of art is quite the experience--from photography and European paintings and sculptures to the armors of the Middle Ages to Greek, Roman and Egyptian exhibits.

Admission is by donation. The Metropolitan Museum does have a "recommended" donation, but in the end, it's your call.

Peconic Wines

When it's time to relax and sample fine wines, Peconic is a good place to venture to. There are some great wineries there. One winery to visit is the Raphael Winery, which is located on Main Road down Route 25.

This Mediterranean-style winery offers guided tours and wine tasting daily. However, I'd advise against just showing up. Make a reservation. The tour is $12 and takes about one hour. This is a solid winery. They were featured in The Wine Spectator Magazine and other top-level publications, such as the New York Times.
