I'm travelling to NYC in early October to meet friends for the weekend. I've decided to fly out a bit early and arrive on the Monday. I've booked a flight to Rochester, landing in the evening, and booked a hire car and an airport hotel for the first night.
I've then got all day Tue/Wed/Thu, aiming to arrive in NYC for Fri late afternoon/early evening (one-way rental, returning the car near my hotel).
I'm looking for suggestions of the best way to split the trip - hopefully should be a good time of year to enjoy the Fall and the Finger Lakes region. I could just split things evenly (so staying around Syracruse/Albany/Poughkeepsie for the different nights) but would appreciate suggestions for better ways of doing things or particular things to see/do!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions :)
