Day 1: New York – Finger Lakes – Niagara Falls
You'll depart from the Big Apple heading north, where you'll pass the beautiful Delaware Water Gap to Watkins Glen State Park in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Walk through Watkins Glen Canyon to visit the beautiful waterfalls and then continue to Niagara Falls, where you'll arrive in the late afternoon (winter itinerary goes to Montour Falls instead of Watkins Glen State Park). Tour the U.S. side of Niagara including the American Falls, Goat Island and Luna Island. At night enjoy Niagara Falls where you can appreciate the colorful lighting of the waters. You will spend the night in Niagara Falls at the Ramada by Wyndham.
Day 2: Niagara Falls - New York
Leaving the hotel, you'll hear the thundering water of Niagara Falls. See the magnificent Horseshoe Falls up close, and experience the power aboard the Maid of the Mist (May-October). During winter until April, you'll tour the Power Vista Hydro-electric station as an alternative to the Maid of the Mist. At noon you'll depart south to New York State, and on the way there will be a stop at either Crossings Premium Outlets in Tannersville, Pennsylvania or Waterloo Premium Outlets in New York. Enjoy discounted prices at brand name stores for less before returning back to New York in the evening.
