Youngstown, NY - Small Town Charm and a Historic and Natural Wonder - Timeless and Stunning!
Youngstown, NY has been described as Mayberry, the fictional home of the Andy Griffith show from the 1960s, and also as Key West of the North. For centuries Youngstown has hosted some of the most spectacular sunsets in Western, NY and Southern ON. It's a short 24 nautical miles from Toronto, ON, and sits at the mouth of the Mighty Niagara River, whose waters flow into Lake Ontario at 168,000 cubic metres (6 million cubic ft.) per minute. It's nearest Canadian neighbor is Niagara-on-the-Lake which is 1 mile (1.6km) across the river.
Youngstown was recently named Best Small Village in Western, NY and is steeped in history from when the first Europeans - Frances' Louis Hennepin, a French explorer first laid eyes on the area when he discovered the Niagara River and Falls in the late 1600s.
Youngstown, borders the southern entrance of Fort Niagara State Park whose historic gem, and living museum, Old Fort Niagara finds its home. There will be lots of things to do in Youngstown this summer from fishing, to boating, to the 40th and FINAL "Levels" Sailing Regatta, to shopping, to eating, to free concerts, to historic walks and river cruises, outdoor exercising, to beautiful natural vistas to just breath and gaze upon. And if that is not enough, Youngstown is purported to be 21% brighter than Lewiston, NY which is located 8 miles south of Youngstown, because of the amount of water that borders, blessing Youngstown with some of the most spectacular sunsets you have ever seen. Youngsown even has the Niagara River Adventures that offers both extreme jet boating fun but will also offer extreme fishing adventures as these state-of-the art boats can take anglers to places on the river they could only dream of before.
