Cheap flights to New York (State)

New York is a state in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is the 27th most extensive, third most populous, and the seventh most densely populated state of the 50 United States. New York is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south and by Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont to the East. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario. The state of New York is often referred to as New York State to distinguish it from New York City, the largest city in the state.

Some 20 million people live within the confines of the state, which is divided into 10 economic regions. The 10 economic regions include Western New York, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Central New York, North Country, Mohawk Valley, Capital District, Hudson Valley, New York City, and Long Island, although there are other divisions and regions being used by various departments to group the counties of the state for tourism and administrative purposes. With 62 counties and a whole bunch of attractions, the Empire State is probably your next best destination.

What to see & do

VISIT: Niagara Falls in the border of Canada and New York – the Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States, more specifically the province of Ontario and the state of New York. The three falls are named as such: Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls. Aside from being the divider of the regions, it is also a tourist attraction and is a hydroelectric power source.

VENTURE: New York, New York - Dubbed as a “Global Power City,” New York is a significant city to various businesses such as finance, commerce, media, art, fashion, technology, education, entertainment, and even research. It is full of architectural, civil, and cultural wonders – upbeat and vigorous in its own way. Along with being world famous, the city is also a favorite destination to travelers – may it be local or international – due to the many attractions within the confines of a rather small space. Texas has much bigger cities than New York, but it's always different in the Big Apple.

VIEW: Buffalo in the Niagara Frontier – with a great and colorful nightlife scene and a vibrant community of the young, this working class city is something that you shouldn't miss out on. Living well in cheap real estate and gorging on the city's affordable and tasty cuisine is something that Buffalo residents are proud off – and that the city's illustrious past as a former trading post and later as a manufacturing centre provides some more twang to its unique flavor. Visit the various attractions such as the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Prudential Building, and the Darwin Martin House, and have some of the famous buffalo (yes, the name came from the name of the city) wings of Anchor Bar.
