I was leafing through some old bookmarks and found quite a few gems for both your armchair travelers and travel planners. The summer tourist season ends right around October 30th or so, so usually if there's a place you want to see, you should squeeze it in before then. Me, I'm always on the hunt for new places to see! Here are a few places to check out:
This website has the most comprehensive listing of everything Adirondack-related (that I know of). From news to blogs to opnion to upcoming events to videos-- this is one cool site!
Round the Bend and Roadside America
This is a very brief listing of links to tourism sites in the state. So if it's the first electric chair in Auburn, NY, you want to see, or the Farmer's Museum's doctors' and dentists' tools and exam tables of the 1800s or other oddities, these "smaller" sites usually have listings of various, quirky places to see and things to do.
I Love NY
The official tourist website for New York State has seen some improvements lately. I like their See & Do page.
NY Canals, NY Parks & Recreation, NY Heritage Sites
All good sites with lots of information.
Winter in New York State is a good time for travel, too-- really! There are a lot of sports activities and spectator sports events, and hiking is great!
