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, Finger Lakes, central New York and Thousand Islands region.
The Adirondack region spans much of northern New York and includes mountains, wilderness, lakes and more. Whether you're visiting the eastern edge of New York state along the shore of Lake Champlain, exploring the many peaks, or visiting and camping in Lake George or Lake Placid -- there's plenty for the adventurer and sightseer alike.
Central New York boasts many unique attractions. If you prefer the great indoors, museums highlight subjects from baseball to antique cars to history. There are state parks for those who love nature, with trails and opportunities to kayak or canoe. It could be a zoo, a shopping trip or an antiques festival -- there's plenty to do in central New York.
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.
Where Canada and the United States meet, cultures blend on the waters of the St. Lawrence 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.
