Fantastic little B&B that's actually listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Complimentary wine and cheese every night, locally roasted coffee in the mornings, and really cozy rooms.

This B&B is nice, but it feels more like a hotel than a "down home" inn. If you aren't quite ready to make the leap from corporate to country, this might be good middle ground.

If you're looking for a great place to truly get away, this place is it. It's literally a Bed & Breakfast on a farm. It doesn't get much more "down home" than that. Their breakfasts are even cooked with the eggs from their own free range chickens!

Really amazing hotel if you've got the scratch to spend the night. In fact, it's the only five diamond rated hotel in all of North Carolina!

Beautiful old firehouse turned into a great museum. Lots and lots of artifacts that will keep both adults and kids in awe of the people who willingly risk their lives to fight fires.

Make sure to strike up a conversation with the volunteers, all of whom are retired FDNY firefighters. They've got some great stories to tell.

Sure, it's touristy, but it's an awesome walk. Whatever you do, don't even think about stepping into the bike lane. Make that mistake, and the locals will verbally assault you into oblivion.

Like Austin said, this isn't exactly the most thing to do in New York - it gets super cramped and really stuffy - but if it's your first time visiting you should absolutely check it out. You'll get some really cool views out of it.

Gorgeous piece of old Buffalo, but with a really dark past. While it's worth visiting the grounds for some pictures, it's absolutely worth taking advantage of their occasional tours through the building, so be sure to call ahead before visiting.

Probably my favorite Canadian border crossing. It's a beautiful bridge, but the wait times can be long - best viewed at night from the shore of the river.

If you can manage to get access, the Sattler Theater is as stunning a piece of Buffalo history, as it is a sad reminder of what the city used to be like. Bring the camera.
