Trends / Food & Drink

You don’t have to visit New York City to experience awesome food. You can find culinary creations and food fests all across the state. Here are a few to add to your New York State itinerary.


The Buffalo Wing Trail

Who doesn’t love Buffalo wings? Make sure you taste the best of the best when you visit the Greater Niagara area. You can find the birthplace of Buffalo wings at Anchor Bar, but there are so many other venues to explore. There are wings of every type, for every taste.


Beef on Weck

If you’re in the Buffalo area, you have to try the signature sandwich you can’t find anywhere else — Beef on Weck. Hailing from the 1800s, this German-inspired sandwich is created from thinly sliced roast beef and a kimmelweck bun topped with caraway and salt. It’s spread with horseradish and meant to be dipped in au jus. Find the original at Schwabl’s.


A Garbage Plate

The Garbage Plate is a western New York must-try, one that just so happens to be perfect for late-night, alcohol-fueled dining. What is it exactly? Fries piled high, topped with macaroni salad, beef patties, mustard, onions and chili. You’re gonna need a fork. Try it at Nick Tahou Hots.


A Maple Tour

New York boasts some beautiful farmland and forests. If you’re traveling during the late winter months or early spring (March and early April is maple-sugaring season), be sure to visit some of these, particularly some of the maple farms. At Sprague’s, you can take a maple tour to see the old-fashioned process that creates this tantalizing nectar of the gods.

Online Resources for Finding Jobs Abroad

Many travelers are exchanging their regular home lives for a more exciting life abroad. However, no matter where in the world you visit, money is needed to live a comfortable life. Gaining work experience abroad can diversity a resume and open opportunities worldwide. For travelers who wish to live a more nomadic lifestyle, getting a short-term job in a country is also a great option. This will ensure travelers have enough money to get by and give them experience. Before leaving for a country or while in a foreign land, travelers can use the internet to find jobs or local resources.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
