Central New York

Smile, the forecast calls for snow!

Although the winters are cold and crisp, Central New York keeps you moving year round -- from ice-skating rinks to boutiques. And if you're lucky, your trip will coincide with one of our many winter festivals, like the Cooperstown Winter Carnival.

For outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, snowshoers and skiers hit the trails at 'hot' spots like Beaver Lake Nature Center and Highland Forest.   Winter fishers will crack the ice for tiger muskies, pickerel and panfish, while devoted fly-fishers find trout and steelhead along snow-swirled streams.  What a perfect place to fend off the cold by harnessing the warmth of our rich winter culture.
