If your idea of the ultimate New York vacation is experiencing the best of everything in the Big Apple, then by all means, book yourself some time (and lots of it) in an Endless Vacation Rentals property in or around New York City.
But New York state has much to offer beyond the bright lights and big city. Families can get away from it all in the Hamptons, where hiking, boating, golfing, bird-watching, spa-hopping, and long walks on the beach are just some of the ways to spend carefree days. Others may choose the Adirondacks and Lake Placid, where nonstop fun includes world-class skiing and ice-skating in the winter and hiking, golfing and boating in the summer.
Wherever your next New York getaway takes place, know that Endless Vacation Rentals offers all of home's comforts for you and your family while you're there, so you can relax, recharge and enjoy every moment.
Carmine's Italian Restaurant (New York City). Enjoy family-style dining (translated: big portions) right next to Central Park. The classics are served here.
Lake Placid Pub & Brewery. Enjoy burgers and other comfort foods to go with a fine selection of homegrown brews at this unassuming establishment in the heart of ski country.
Hike, bike and play at Hither Hills (the Hamptons). So you can't afford a Hamptons beach house? No problem. This state park offers everything you need for a lovely day at the beach.
Ski Lake Placid. Whiteface Mountain offers the highest vertical drop in the East and is a U.S. Olympic Training site. But there's plenty to do in the summer months, too, including hiking the Stag Brook Falls trail or enjoying a lazy afternoon drive up Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway.

Visit Lincoln Center (New York City). This cluster of buildings is home to the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City ballet, the New York Philharmonic, and more.
The Museum of Modern Art (New York City). At MoMA, you can see van Gogh's Starry Night and Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, or you can view the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. A recent renovation offers plenty of light and space to take it all in.
The Empire State Building (New York City). More than 3 million visitors come each year to get a glimpse of the city through the 86th- and 102nd-floor observatories. In all there are 102 stores of steel, bricks, limestone and stainless steel. Come during dusk for the best city views.
