Which places worth to visit during the New York travel? I'd like to recommend the national historic landmark as Saratoga Springs & Niagara Falls nearby.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK

Explore the best of the Hudson Valley's healing springs, exciting racehorses, and more at Saratoga Springs, New York. Featuring the best of New York's thoroughbred racing, the Saratoga Race Course immerses guests in the electric atmosphere that only a horse race can provide. After the race, be sure to tour the track to learn about its history through the years. Visitors who are truly passionate about horseracing can learn more about the sport at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Face, which is home to interesting exhibits and artifacts from the sport's rich history. History buffs, on the other hand, will love a trip to the New York State Military Museum. Founded in 1863, the museum has amassed a noteworthy collection of military artifacts from the Revolutionary War onwards.

As a National Historic Landmark of the city, the Saratoga Spa State Park is another must-see destination. It's also home to the Performing Arts Center, which will undoubtedly provide guests with a culturally memorable experience. While you're in the area, be sure to visit the National Museum of Dance and delve into the history of the art form and its many styles. End the trip with an exploration of the Hudson Valley by taking a scenic ride along the Hudson River then cross through the Adirondacks in the vintage rail cars of the Saratoga and North Creek Railway.

NIAGARA FALLS

Of the many places in the United States to journey to and discover, Niagara Falls should definitely be at least on the top ten of an avid traveler's list. Bordering both New York and Ontario, the falls present a tremendous array of beautiful things to see and do. Start by getting as close as possible to the natural wonder of the Niagara Falls and enjoy a light spray from the mighty cascading waters aboard Canada's Hornblower Niagara Cruises. Adventurous travelers can also get to the heart of the falls by navigating a network of tunnels at Journey Behind the Falls or cross a one-kilometer long section of Niagara Whirlpool aboard the cable driven Whirlpool Aero Car. Don't forget to catch a ride on the Niagara SkyWheel in Ontario for a stunning view of the falls and the landscape that surrounds it.

On the New York side, the Cave of Winds Tours takes participants on an action packed and heart pumping walk into the mist of the falls. Better yet, hop aboard the Maid of the Mist and venture close to the falls to hear the impressive and thundering roar of water falling by the gallons into misty pools. A spot of outlet shopping and incredible bargains can also be found at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara in New York State.
