Skyline of NYC

New York City

We couldn’t mention spring break in New York without mentioning NYC. Here, you can enjoy world-class museums (our favorites are the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History), taste cuisines from around the world, catch a show on Broadway, and shop for the latest spring season fashions. You can also do some of the more touristy activities like visiting the Statue of Liberty or going to the top of the Empire State Building.

Watkins Glen State Park in NY's Finger Lakes region

Finger Lakes Region

If you are looking to get out and enjoy the Great Outdoors, we recommend taking a spring break trip to the Finger Lakes region, which is an easy drive from the Auction Direct USA-Rochester store! At the Finger Lakes, you can enjoy hiking, fishing, and a variety of other outdoor activities, The numerous towns nestled between the lakes are also fun to check out and find hidden gems. And if you are a history buff, there are a multitude of historic homes to tour or novelty inns to spend the night at.

Countryside in northern New York

Northern Country of New York

Another place to enjoy your spring break in New York is up in the Northern Country near the Canadian and Vermont borders. This is the place to go if you love small towns that are big on heart. We especially love Malone, which was featured in Farmer Boy, the book by Laura Ingalls Wilder that told the story of her husband Almanzo Wilder’s boyhood. You can also visit Almanzo Wilder’s boyhood home in nearby Burke. Additionally, we recommend checking out the wilderness in these areas if you love hiking or getting out on the canoe or kayak. Lake Champlain is also in the Northern Country and offers great fishing – and maybe a glimpse of Champ the legendary lake monster.
