Stunning Places in Upstate New York

Letchworth State Park

Billed as the Grand Canyon of the East, Letchworth State Park is truly a beauty to behold. Stunning natural attractions and heart-throbbing adventures make the park an exciting place to visit. The main highlight of a trip here is exploring the park’s gorgeous waterfalls. Besides, you can hike in the lofty mountains and also go on an air balloon ride or camp near the shimmering Genessee River to make the most of your trip to Letchworth State Park.


McGregor Vineyard 

Visit McGregor Vineyard, one the oldest wineries in the Finger Lakes to enjoy spectacular views, while drinking exquisite estate grown and bottled wines.  Overlooking the beautiful Keuka Lake, McGregor’s is not as acclaimed as Napa, but its serene charm and sumptuous wine will delight you no end. Whether you’re with friends or family, your trip to this off beat wine trail will be a memory you will cherish for long. 


Whittaker Park 

Have you ever seen waterfalls inside waterfalls? Head to Whittaker Park for such a sight. Tucked away in the end of the park, Whittaker Park is breathtakingly beautiful, and most importantly crowd-free. This makes it a haven for peace seekers and nature lovers alike. Don’t forget to pack your camping gear as thankfully you won’t find any hotel near this natural marvel.



Ithaca is popular for its stunning natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. Here, you can visit many picturesque galleries, attend live music events and explore the scenic landscape in and around Ithaca. Shopping in its lively markets and gorging on delicious local food also remain a part and parcel of any Ithaca trip.
