Travel the World Without Leaving New York State
New York has some of the most unique areas, but not some of the most unique city names. Maybe the inspiration was from other parts of the world?
If you ever wanted to travel the world, but can't afford it, just head to some of these 'worldly' cities throughout New York.
Let's start in the United States...
You can check out the town of Alabama on the western side of the state, or maybe head over to Florida, New York in Montgomery County. Other 'states' inside New York include Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Ohio, and the village of Wyoming in Wyoming County.
That doesn't include some of the well-known cities in other states that are also right here in New York, like...
Boston, New York in Erie County
Columbus, New York in Chenango County
Philadelphia, in Northern New York
Cleveland, New York in Oswego County
Now that we've covered the US, let's head into Canada for Ontario, New York and Windsor, New York.
Moving on to the rest of the Eastern Hemisphere...
Cuba, New York in Allegany County
Mexico, New York in Oswego County
Panama, New York at the western edge of the state
