Wilmington, New York: Whiteface Mountain
Whiteface Mountain became a bit famous in 1980 when it served as the site of the skiing competitions for the Winter Olympics. The complex is still very active, of course, and tourists can take a gondola ride (and who doesn't want to do that as often as possible?) up in the summer to take a look around. They get views like the one above.
Things to do list: take this ride in late September. I'll bet the fall colors are truly spectacular.
By the way, cars can drive up to the top of the mountain on a highway that runs up the other side. Give me the gondola ride anytime.
