We loved the countryside of New York State. Cortland itself had many houses from an earlier day, as did the communities we passed through.
The communities and farmlands had a “well-kept” look to them, as if the owners take pride in their homes.
We needed a park for a couple nights stay while seeing Niagara Falls, and chose the Darien Lakes State Park. What a delight! Attractive small park with a lake, including swimming area, and very well kept.
We wondered if all New York State parks are as nice as Darien Lake.
