Go on a Hike

So many trails, so little time. Here are some favorites for any new or experienced hiker to keep you happy and healthy when you visit Upstate New York. Make the Catskill Mountains your first stop:

Hit the Town

  • Woodstock: This famous art colony is still thriving and drawing visitors all year round to its fun and sometimes unusual attractions

Enjoy Holiday Fun

Stop by and be part of the festivities when these towns light up for the holidays:

  • Troy Turkey Trot: Get in a workout and trot down to the finish line the Friday after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas in Ellicottville: Listen to Christmas carolers, watch a “Reindog” parade, and more
  • Lights on the Lake: Gaze upon two miles of colorful and clever lighting displays
  • Festival of Trees in Canandaigua: Admire the holiday-themed decorations in this historic mansion, where you can also participate in a silent auction for the items on display

Play in the Snow

For fun winter activities, head over here once the snow falls and keep your heart pumping:

  • Hunter Mountain: Bring a friend or the family to this resort when you hit the slopes to ski, snowboard, or even go snow tubing
  • Adirondack Mountains: For a memorable winter vacation, there’s no other place you’d want to go for a winter carnival, festival, and outdoor fun for the kids
