MMany Attractions in Upstate New York, like the beaches, Erie Canal, and wine country are only minutes to at most an hour and a half from local towns and cities, and visitors can enjoy both a relaxing getaway as well as visit a variety of unique activities in as little as one day.


The Historic Cities of Syracuse  and Rochester  (right) in Central/Upstate NY have contributed much to the American scene over the Centuries, and offer an exciting blend of Fun activities for all members of the family, with accommodations to fit every budget.


Nearby attractions, such as sporting events (minor league baseball and ice hockey games), cultural happenings (musical, theatre, and fine art productions), City tours, and family-oriented trips to theme parks and zoos are seasonally available in every Region.


Culinary delights range from down-home cooking to internationally acclaimed fare, and shopping is a favorite for those who like to explore eclectic artisan boutiques as well as major shopping complexes. Syracuse’ Destiny USA  is world-class mega-mall that offers over 42 domestic and international restaurants, entertainment, and hundreds of stores - and is one of the largest shopping aggregates in NY State !


Three of New York State's finest resort casinos, Turning Stone, Vernon Downs, and Del Lago  are located within an hour’s drive from most locations. Turning Stone  features custom amenities, a PGA golf course, and nightly entertainment with gaming facilities. Vernon Downs  has one of the fastest sulky horse racing tracks in the U.S, and Del Lago  is the newest gaming and entertainment complex in Upstate NY !

   Enjoy Small town Charm


Every Region contains its own unique collection of rural villages and friendly towns where you can acquaint yourself with the local culture, attend Farmers Markets,  and enjoy seasonal festivals. History is everywhere in Upstate NY, and cultural heritage is alive and well.


Many fascinating towns in the Central Erie Canal Corridor are found along the famous Erie Canal, and offer elegant accommodations, enticing recreational activities, and picturesque boat rides through the fascinating canal locks and inland lakes.

The countrified environment lets you get up close to the mountains, rivers, waterfalls, natural preserves, and varied scenery of the Lake and surrounding areas. The Western Adirondacks is World-famous for its mountains, pristine waterfalls, outdoor activities and rustic towns nestled among recreational lakes, rolling hills, and vernal woodlands.


    Fall in Love with the Lake


Native Americans in the early 1700’s referred to the area around Oswego Harbor as “a pouring out place where the waters never end.”  Coastal areas along majestic Lake Ontario contain white sandy beaches, camp grounds, natural wildlife habitats, and picturesque nautical harbors.  The Seaway Trail  offers World-renouned angling opportunities, and is filled with historic treasures like the 250 year-old Fort Ontario that overlooks the City of Oswego


Major amenities are literally minutes to an hour from well-traveled roadways, and the diversity of attractions is impressive. Around the Thousand Islands, you’re always by the water, and this fun-filled vacation paradise offers local beaches, several Castles built on an island, boat tours, lake-side dining, and fascinating museums.

    Savor the Wine Country

The Finger Lakes Region is known around the World as the Wine Country’ of Upstate New York, and is named for the glistening collection of slender 'finger lakes'  that are found here.


Wine tours take you to acclaimed vineyards, breweries, and taverns reminiscent of Europe, where you can ‘taste’ the World-famous wines and beer products grown and distilled on site, tour their facilities, and enjoy panoramic views of the countryside. Wine tasting  along the many Wine Trails is a Fun way to explore the fascinating arts and flavors of the Regions in Eastern Lake Ontario.
