Central NY

A nine-county region, extending from the Catskills across the Mohawk Valley to the Central Adirondacks, encompass Leatherstocking Country. This region conjures memories of New York's rich historical folklore: leatherstockings were actually protective leather leggings worn by the frontiersmen that blazed the trails in this region. Here you can experience some of the most beautiful scenery in North America, along with some of its best drawing cards; the Turning Stone Casino, the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Iroquois Indian Museum, The Farmers' Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, and the geological wonders of Howe Caverns. Charter a boat for a tour on the Erie Canal, hunt for antiques, dig for "diamonds", tap a maple tree for its sweet reward… Leatherstocking Country, the heartland of New York State.
