    Spring in Central Park


Experience New York in full bloom!

It's time to enjoy New York's scenic hiking trails from Giant Ledge in the Catskills to Breakneck Ridge on the Hudson River and time for many more outdoor adventures. Spring events are in full bloom at open-air festivals like Rochester's annual Lilac Festival and at many more flower shows throughout the state. Shed your winter coat and have some fun--it's spring in New York State.

The season is buzzing with fresh aromas and tasty treats. Smell what's cooking at the hottest food events like New York's annual International Food Festival, satisfy your sweet tooth with maple sugaring in the Adirondacks or sample local beer at New York's craft breweries. If there are spring showers, head inside for colorful creations at art museums from Albright-Knox Art Gallery to the MoMa and other cultural hotspots.
