Central New York

Winter's fun in New York's heartland!

Frosted hills and picturesque farmland hold country inns and world-famous attractions like the National Baseball Hall of Fame and in Howes Caves, discover awesome underground caverns and the Iroquois Museum. Find outdoor fun in scenic parks, try skating, or ice-fishing to cross-country skiing and snowmobiling on boundless trails with abundant snow.

This region's known as America's Craft Brew Destination. Visit one of many breweries to discover the stories, traditions and tastes of Central New York's craft beer, hard (and soft) cider and spirits. The Cooperstown Beverage Trail leads to tasteful sites like Fly Creek Cider Mill, Butternuts Beer & Ale, and Bear Pond Winery.

Cooperstown's Winter Carnival hosts a big parade, fireworks and cool events like the 20th annual Polar Bear Lake Jump!
