Nature adventures offered when booking a cheap New York hostel
The autumn months can provide tourists heading to New York with the chance to witness hundreds of great natural sights around its various areas.

For this reason, those up for an adventure that is based purely on nature may want to secure some cheap New York hostels and get ready to go exploring.

Although this part of the US is home to the wonder that is Niagara Falls, there are two other major regions that have been recommended for exploration during a trip there – the Adirondack and Wine Country areas.

With the effects of "light on brilliantly-coloured foliage and cascading water" being offered, the latter half of October is recommended as the key time of the year to marvel at the sites of Adirondack, which covers an area of 6,000 miles – dominated by rivers and streams.

Some of the main destinations tipped to be spectacular are the Ausable Chasm, complete with 150-foot cliffs and falling water, as well as the hamlet of Jay, which comes complete with spectacular autumn green scenes and a collection of quaint churches.

Those choosing to explore the Wine Country locations once booking up a cheap New York hostel will also be in for plenty of treats.

Included within this region is the Cornell University, which comes packed in with a series of waterfalls, winding paths and deep ravines, to name but a few attractions that will appeal to nature lovers.

Taking a ride on the Sam Patch Tour Boat when reaching Rochester is also highly advisable, with the Sam Patch & Mary Jemison website, which operates these trips, reporting just why investing on this activity could be worthwhile.

It explained: "These authentic tour boats embark from Pittsford and Rochester, New York, and provide unparalleled opportunities to experience history and enjoy relaxing getaways that showcase the beauty and ingenuity of America's celebrated Erie Canal."
