10 New York State Roadside Attractions and Sights! have you been?

New York is a unique place. I’m not talking about Manhattan. I’m referring to New York State where we’ve had a UFO sighting or two. One of our towns, Whitehall, holds the distinction of ‘Big Foot Watching Capital of the World’ and there is an egg in Albany in which artists perform. It’s just scratching the surface.

Take a day trip, heck even on your commute to and from work, you’ll pass by things you don’t think much about. Why don’t you wonder why the Statue of Liberty is in Schenectady? Why is there a giant head on display at Catskill? Here are 10 roadside attractions and sights I found on a day trip around New York State. Have you been to any of these?

We all know the tourist attractions New York has to offer and they are all great. Saratoga Race Track, Niagara Falls and the Baseball Hall of Fame to name a few. Today, however, I want to focus on the road less travelled.

From Catskill to Cooperstown, from Schenectady to Santa Claus, there are so many cool things hidden on our country roads, scenic landscapes and cities. Scroll through the images below to see the oldest in the world, the largest in the world, the smallest in America and much more. For example, do you know who it is?

I’ll tell you who it is, why the Statue of Liberty is in Schenectady, why Santa Claus lives in Valatie and more. Look at this.
