New York

Visiting New York

Tucked into the Northeast corner or the United States, New York state offers a wide variety of activities for visitors. From strutting across the Brooklyn Bridge into the concrete jungle that is Manhattan to hiking along the Adirondack Mountains, there is breathtaking beauty in every corner.

New York is only the 27th-largest state by land area, but it’s the fourth-most populous state in the country, owing most of that population density to its largest city, New York City.  It’s no wonder each of the professional sports leagues needs two teams in the New York City area!

Also, some of the most iconic national landmarks are in the state of New York, including the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls.  With plenty to do around the state to keep anyone entertained, NY should be on everyone’s travel bucket list.  Follow along with us to see why “We ♥ NY”!
