NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – For cyclist and author Harvey Botzman, you don’t have to travel far and lavishly to enjoy faraway vacation destinations.

There are spots near the Tri-State that won’t break your budget, including upstate New York.

“It’s very quiet. You can hear the birds. You see small animals and mammals running across the trail sometimes,” Botzman said.

But if you’ve got the time and money for an exotic adventure, the New York Times Travel Show on Saturday had the Javits Center explored all of your options.

There was something there for everyone: From vacation home rentals to travel in Asia and Caribbean to cruises to Alaska.

But for Botzman, an enjoyable trip is as easy as boxing up the bike and getting to the Erie Canal on Amtrak or even a Greyhound bus.

The show runs on Saturday until 6 p.m. and again on Sunday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
