Bear Mountain: excursions in a hire car around New York State
Traveling by car in New York State is worthwhile alone for the visit to the idyllic Bear Mountain State Park, a nature reserve with large forests and glassy lakes. The state park is particularly popular with families because of its varied leisure activities and the beautiful boat trips. From Perkins Memorial Tower you have a great view over the state park and the Hudson Valley.
In the Indian Summer, when the leaves of the trees are a blaze of colour, the experience in Bear Mountain State Park is particularly intensive and rewarding. On your round trip in a hire car through New York State you should also visit the nearby Lake Harriman State Park.
By hire car through New York State: Seneca Nation of Indians Fall Festival
Drive your hire car picked up in New York City to the Seneca Nations Fall Festival for an authentic experience of Native American Indian culture.
Dressed in colourful costumes, the people of the Seneca Nation of Indians present their traditions. Music and dance, artistic representations, sporting events, American Indian craftsmanship, traditional food and much more are on the agenda.
The Seneca Nation of Indians Fall Festival takes place in Irving on Lake Erie, about 400 miles from the car rental station in New York City. Other events like the great Pow Wow of the Seneca Nation of Indians can also be experienced in Salamanca, also home to the great Seneca-Iroquois National Museum. Salamanca in its own right is another worthy highlight and one of the most beautiful places south of the Niagara Falls on your round trip in a hire car in New York State.
