But your adventure does not have to end once your flight touches down. As long as you are in the award-winning Letchworth State Park, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to explore its 66 miles of trails that are also available for horseback riding and biking (and snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in the winter). The park is home to more than 20 waterfalls and the Genesee Rivers roars through the gorge over three of the major waterfalls offering opportunities for whitewater rafting and kayaking fun.

 
But if relaxation is on your to-do list, then why not add a swim in the park’s pool or find a picturesque spot to simply sit and take in the unique beauty this park holds. In 2015, Letchworth won the USA TODAY Readers’ Choice Award for Best State Park in the United States.

 
If you are a camper, the park offers an array of tent and trailer campsites as well as winterized cabins. For a little more upscale or romantic stay at the park, book a room or suite at the park’s Glen Iris Inn which also features an on-site restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks.

 
The nearby town of Geneseo  offers other lodging options  from cozy inns, modern hotels and elegant B&Bs. Geneseo is also host to a number of delicious dining options for whatever your mood. Have a romantic dinner for two at the historic Yard of Ale Canal House  which showcases fresh, seasonal ingredients of the area or unwind at the warm and cozy Village Tavern for a bite to eat and well-earned adult beverage.

 
Geneseo  is home to a variety of notable landmarks and attractions you shouldn’t miss like the National Warplane Museum, the Wadsworth Homestead  and Tree Creations, a tree house village complete with a castle, church, an actual airplane and even a vintage car – your guessed it – all in trees!
