Whether traveling cross country or a backyard tourist, American travelers have a desire to drive to their vacation destination. According to a recent Expedia poll, 25 percent of men and 33 percent of women have “not but always wanted to drive across the US.” Highlighting shorter road trips, named the Niagara Wine Trail number 7 on its “8 Great American Short Road Trips” list, showcasing some of the best scenery and wide-open spaces America has to offer. Often referred to as “The Other New York”, this part of the Empire State belongs to the Great Lakes region. Eighty-nine miles from the Lake Ontario Parkway to Youngstown and Lewiston, NY, consists of mellow beauty — forests, meadows, orchards, and vineyards.

“Once you hit Niagara County, be on the lookout for the many tasting possibilities along the growing Niagara Wine Trail. And of course, just up the escarpment, there are some falls that you may have heard of.” —
