  1. Martins Fantasy Island

No surprise here!  Martin's Fantasy Island has been a summer fun destination for decades in Western New York.  One reviewer's experience:

"We visit this park every year. The Silver Comet is a great coaster. The park train has stops at the front and back of park, so you can save walking. Coolers and picnic food are allowed in the park... we enjoy bring food from home. Dragster Drench in the water park is great for a group up to four people to race. the Wild West Shootout show is a gem."


2.  Beach's Motorcycle Tours - Day Tours

Care to see the European Alps via motorcycle?  These are your guys on Grand Island. Here's a helpful review:

"The only way to see Europe on a motorcycle!  We have been on two tours with the Beach's and let me tell you....they know where to go! This is not a tour for inexperienced riders in my opinion. They will take you on winding roads to the top of the world! Every hotel along our tours were selected in great locations. Some in ancient medieval villages converted to accommodate guests with all the modern conveniences and others in places like castles!

3.  Beaver Island State Park

First off I'd like to say that's a sweet aerial photo of the park (I LOVE Google Maps.) ANYWAY, another location that's a summer destination for Western New Yorkers.

"What a great park for families, parties and fun. We recently went to a wedding and it was a great venue for it in the main lodge. I also went to an event last year and had a wonderful experience there as well. Things are so well taken care of and clean. They take great pride in what they have built and it shows."
