Summer in New York State

The season is bright with blue skies and happy travels.

When summer is here, there's no better place for fun in the sun than New York State. From the 46 high peaks of Adirondack State Park to sailing the shimmering blue waters of Long Island's North Fork, New York's natural wonders offer family fun all season long. Take your pick from hundreds of exciting summer events happening throughout the state. Walk on the wild side above the treetops at Wild Center and Wild Walk, take an unforgettable jetboat tour of Niagara Falls with Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours, and climb the Shawangunk Mountains at Mohonk Preserve

New York's most famous warm-weather attractions, like Watkins Glen International, Niagara Falls, and Saratoga Race Course all belong on any summer bucket list. Thrill seekers will love flying down Hunter Mountain on North America's longest and highest zipline tour or taking on famous roller coasters including the Comet at Great Escape and Hurricane Harbor and Coney Island's Cyclone. Those looking for a more serene summer day can float through Ausable Chasm, stroll across the Walkway Over the Hudson, or visit the Statue of Liberty.

Culture vultures also have plenty to look forward to this season. Iconic institutions like the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the Corning Museum of Glass offer special events and exhibits all summer long.
