Visit New York State
31 Mar
New York City needs little introduction, but the State that is home to this world renowned city is relatively undiscovered, and offers a huge array of attractions away from the bright lights and round the clock activity of the city

The ‘Upstate’ experience offers something for everyone, including some of the of the most incredible natural sights in the United States.

The 1000 Islands region offers endless shorelines, rich history and unique culture along the shores of the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario. Lighthouses, historic castles, maritime museums, trophy fishing and diving, quaint villages, waterfront dining, and more make the 1000 Islands a destination that visitors come to again and again.
