Summer in New York State

Discover why it's easy to love New York

Summertime in New York — it's easy. Easy to plan, easy to get excited, and easy to get away. Find your camping spot from a secluded island in Lake George to the serene shores of the St. Lawrence River, catch some sun and surf on Coopers Beach — a Dr. Beach favorite, hike to adventure at Panama Rocks, soar over the Finger Lakes with the Harris Hill Soaring Center, and ride the Delaware River amid the beautiful Catskills scenery. 

New York's most famous warm-weather attractions, like Watkins Glen International and Saratoga Race Course, all belong on any summer getaway wishlist. Those looking for a more serene summer day can float through Ausable Chasm or visit the magnificent Boldt Castle. Have some fun by the water at Canalside Buffalo or make a splash with Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours on the Niagara River. Also not to be missed, The Great New York State Fair is back in August with loads of family fun and plenty of your favorite fair foods, midway rides, and live entertainment. Plan your summer getaway today!
