Browse any of the regions below (by clicking on the blue links) to find a complete list of destinations. You'll find summer destinations throughout New York state including the Adirondacks, central New York, the Finger Lakes and Thousand Islands region.

The Adirondacks

The Adirondack region spans much of northern New York and includes mountains, wilderness, lakes and more. There's plenty for the adventurer and sightseer alike.

Central New York

Central New York boasts many unique attractions. If you prefer the great indoors, museums highlight subjects from maritime history to art. For those who love nature, visit a farm and pick your own fresh fruit and vegetables, and discover open trails and opportunities to kayak or canoe. It could be a visit to a greenhouse, shopping for quality crafts, or discovering hidden gems -- there's plenty to do in central New York. 

The Finger Lakes

Known for the many wineries that dot its shores, the Finger Lakes region provides fun for all. With many culinary highlights, top-notch hiking and biking, and historic landmarks -- the Finger Lakes is a great place to spend a weekend, or an entire week. Natural wonders, shopping, spas, and extraordinary vistas are just some of the things you have to look forward to.

The Thousand Islands

Where Canada and the United States meet, cultures blend on the waters of the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. One of the most beautiful places on the planet, a garden of woods and sparkling waters, the 1000 Islands region is a friendly place with many outdoor touring and camping opportunities.
