Are you looking for some off-the-beaten-path attractions? Then consider a budget hotel in Elmira, New York. The city has over 30,000 people and it is the seat of Chemung County. The City of Elmira is surrounded by the Town of Elmira and both municipalities are just north of the Pennsylvania border. The city was the site of the Battle of Newtown and was also a stop on the Sullivan Expedition that took place in 1779.
But these aren’t the only attractions to see if you pick a cheap hotel in Elmira. At the top of Harris Hill, you will find the National Soaring Museum. The location is said to be where the sport of gliding was born in America. You can also find the world’s fastest carousel in Elmira. It turns at speeds close to 18 miles per hour. For more traditional sightseeing, visit the Arnot Art Museum, found in the Civic-Historic District of Elmira.
