Diamond Resorts International® Timeshare -- Experience the Sights and Sounds of Upstate New York

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - August 03, 2016) - There's no place like Niagara Falls, the Finger Lakes, and the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains in the summer. Diamond Resorts International® timeshare experts recommend vacationers include the sights and sounds of upstate New York in their travel plans. This region features natural wonders as a result of Ice Age glaciers, miles of hiking trails, majestic castles and haunted houses, historic wartime forts and battlefields, and museums and wineries nestled amid the scenic rural landscape. There is a wide variety of unforgettable cultural experiences and thrill-seeking adventures to discover.

Niagara Falls, on the border with Canada, cascades through Niagara Falls State Park, America's oldest state park. It's one of the world's most famous honeymoon destinations and daredevil attractions. Here's a tip: Diamond Resorts International® timeshare travel advisors suggest packing a raincoat, because even on a sunny day you can feel the power and mist of millions of gallons of water crashing over the breathtaking waterfalls from the observation decks or tour boat. The park is open 24/7 and a passport is not required.

The Finger Lakes Wine Country has over 120 of New York's finest wineries specializing in aromatic white varieties like Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Vineyard tours and wine tastings are a relaxing way to spend the day, especially if you include the Belhurst Castle Winery on Seneca Lake. According to Diamond Resorts timeshare professionals, plan on visiting three to five wineries and don't forget to have a designated driver! If you're a fan of motorsports and the roar of the speedway, a pit stop at Watkins Glen International, the birthplace of American Road Racing should also be on the agenda.

Nature lovers and history buffs will enjoy the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains with thousands of areas to hike, swim, bike, and fish, as well as several Revolutionary War museums and crystal caves. Surrounding Lake George, in the southern Adirondacks, history buffs will be fascinated by the family-friendly living history museum Fort William Henry, and at the northern end of the 32 mile lake, Fort Ticonderoga. In the Catskills, a trek through Howe Caverns, the second most popular tourist attraction after Niagara Falls, is a must. Cave explorers can travel below the earth's surface where the temperature is always 52 degrees. The 80-minute cavern tour includes stunning views of stalactites and an underground boat ride.

Also known for its music festivals (Woodstock), famous authors (Mark Twain, Washington Irving, and L. Frank Baum), and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, a visit to upstate New York is sure to inspire, engage, and entertain you.
