The Big Apple is not the only part of New York State worth visiting. For a New York vacation in a rustic setting, visit the Finger Lakes region, whose winding bicycle paths take you through scenic landscapes and charming villages. It is also the birthplace of the American women’s rights movement, and several local museums bear witness to this.
