Not far from the yellow cabs, skyscrapers and noise of Manhattan you’ll uncover a world of small towns, fresh air, wildlife, forests, unspoilt beaches and State Parks.

From the thunderous Niagara Falls on the Canadian border to the wide open spaces of the Catskills Mountains and the beaches and boardwalks of Long Island, New York State has more than its fair share of natural beauty and wonder.

The history, melting pot of peoples, culture and international cuisine  make New York State a fascinating place to fly to.

Summer is the peak season in the Hamptons. Visitors planning holidays in the Hamptons need to book New York flights and rental homes at least six months in advance to avoid missing out.

Off Season:

Getting around New York

Public Transport

In New York City, public transport is really the only way to go. The city has a great subway and bus system and taxis are fairly easy to flag down. This is one place where driving is best left to the experts. However, in the rest of the towns and cities across the state public transport leaves a lot to be desired.

Air

With a bunch of airports and airlines to choose from, flying is a quick, and often cheap, way to get around New York State. Fly with CommutAir, JetBlue Airways, US Airways, Colgan Air  and Northwest Airlines.

Car

For everywhere outside NYC, hiring a car is your best bet for convenience and value for money. If you’re driving over winter make sure your car is prepared for the elements with snow tires, working windscreen wipers, battery, and demisters. Oh, and don’t forget, they drive on the right.

Rail

Catching the train in New York State certainly won’t get you anywhere fast, but it does make for a relaxing journey. Travel with Amtrak, Long Island Rail Road, and Metro-North Railroad.

Bus

While not the most glamorous mode of transport, it’s certainly affordable. Catch the famous (infamous) Greyhound to make your way around the state.
