Popular historic sites such as St. Mary of the Cataract R. C. Parish and Stone-Tolan House Historic Site are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Niagara Falls and Tinker Nature Park.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Appreciate the collections at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and 9/11 Memorial. Your inner history buff will appreciate Ellis Island and St. Paul's Chapel. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Fire Island National Seashore (in Patchogue), Bronx Zoo (in Bronx) and Jones Beach State Park (in Wantagh). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Fifth Avenue, tour the pleasant surroundings at Central Park Zoo, don't miss a visit to Central Park, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
