      Where do you recommend for a day out from from NYC on the LIRR?

      Long Island Jan 18, 2016 at 5:38 AM

      I have never been anywhere very much on Long Island on my many visits to NYC and wondered about taking a day trip out of the city on the LIRR. Can anyone recommend the best line/a destination to head for? We (two mature adults - like walking/photography/eating out - would like to see some of the coastal scenery and maybe spend a couple of hours or more in one of the villages/small towns. I like the look of the Montauk branch but appreciate Montauk itself might be too far. Where is nice to have a meal, a wander round and return all within one day? We would be visiting in mid-April. Thank you. Sam

    • What should I see in 3 days in NY?

      I'm going to have cancer treatments abroad, thanks to Placidway Medical Tourism. I'm from Mexico, but having the best treatment and the best oncologists is a priority for me. That's to say, I have my trip scheduled on 13th March and I'm going to spend 8 days in NY. I'll have 3 full days for visits and surroundings. So what do you suggest?

      We are embarking on a trip cross country via Amtrak in 3 days. I just now started looking up the parking situation at the Rochester, NY, Amtrak Station. It doesn't look too good. Long-term parking is free, but in 2008 people said not to park a car there over a weekend. We'll be gone 2 weeks! What alternatives do we have? Could we park long term at the airport and take a cab over?? Help!

      Visiting Rochester, Letchworth Park and Erie Canal

      by iam1wthee Online Now Aug 21, 2004 at 1:28 AM

      Next month I plan on going to Rochester from NYC. While there I plan to see Letchworth Park and Erie Canal. Does anyone know of a hotel in Rochester that has a tour desk to take one to these other places? If not is there a tour agency in Rochester that takes you to the other places mentioned? You see if there is then I would just take the plane up there, however, if there isn't then I would try to drive up there. The drive is like 5-7hours I understand and I have never driven for this long. Is there any rest stop or interesting town along the way that anyone can recommend so that I can rest up for the other half of the drive? How is the weather there in early to midst September? Would the waters be too cold to do white water rafting in Letchworth park? Would it be to windy for ballooning? Is there a cruise that goes into Letchworth Park? How is traffic up there, is it as bad as NY? Can one find parking easy? Would the laser light shows still continue past Labor Day? Are there cruises in Erie after Labor day? I know this is a lot but your response is greatly appreciated.
