New York

Empire State

New York, New York, the city so great they named it twice. Whether your passion is culture and heritage, outdoor adventure, food and wine, architecture, art or shopping, New York City and the State regions offer it in abundance. New York City is the perfect long weekend, but beyond the ‘Big Apple’ there is so much more. To the east is Long Island, with miles of pristine beaches, charming fishing villages, Gold Coast mansions and awardwinning wineries. Less than two hours north lies the Historic Hudson Valley, famous for sites such as The Vanderbilt Mansion and Springwood, the home of Franklin Roosevelt.

The Catskills Region boasts four dozen golf courses, many wineries, and lots of outdoor activities, soft adventure and excellent skiing in winter. North of the Capital, Saratoga Region is rich in culture and heritage, while the Adirondacks, home to the Olympic Village of Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain have many more year-round outdoor activities and opportunities to connect with nature. The Thousand Islands-Seaway region has great fishing, beautiful waterside campsites and the 454-mile-long scenic Seaway Trail. Crystal-clear lakes, unspoilt forests, waterfalls and fertile valleys all help make up the Fingerlakes, the USA's second biggest wine-producing area. The spectacle of Niagara Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world is truly awe inspiring.



There are 11 regions, from Long Island and its beaches, Hudson Valley, the outdoor adventures of the Adirondacks and the Catskills to Capital Saratoga’s cultural heritage. Visitors love New York City; they'll also love New York State.

State Secret

Kayak around 1,864 stunning islands in the Thousand Islands Seaway, enjoy wine tasting in the Finger Lakes or get up close and personal as you feel the spray of the iconic Niagara Falls.
