New YorkUnited States of America

The Empire State is a region rich with history, full of breathtaking landscapes and home of the thriving and always exhilarating New York City.

New York is a state that has become synonymous with its largest city, the “Big Apple.” A visit to this shining metropolis is near compulsory, but the rest of the state is equally filled with the promise of adventure. Venture north of New York City to discover dramatic waterfalls, tranquil lakes and mountains covered in hiking trails.

New York State played a crucial role in the formation of the new United States, as it was the home of multiple revolutionary battles and the first banks. Visit places such as the National Museum of the American Indian and the Iroquois Indian Museum to learn about the long and storied history of the state before Europeans arrived.

Gaze in wonder at the bright lights and glistening skyscrapers of New York City. Wander around historic neighborhoods such as iconic Manhattan and creative Brooklyn and catch a show in world-famous Broadway. Central Park, the Empire State Building and Grand Central Station are just a few of the instantly recognizable landmarks in this awe-inspiring metropolis.

Travel directly north of NYC into the Hudson Valley to visit historic houses and charming towns. Explore the stately homes of Olana State Historic Site and the Vanderbilt Mansion.

Trek through the Catskill Mountains in the center of the state or summit the peaks of the Adirondacks in the far north. Ride the Catskill Mountain Railroad or mountain bike across numerous trails. Hike up Mount Marcy, the highest point in the state, for unparalleled views of the region.

Western New York is equally full of alluring destinations. Cruise along the Saint Lawrence River between the Thousand Islands or visit the vineyards that line the Finger Lakes. The town of Ithaca is famed for its waterfalls, wineries and universities. In the far west, visit the city of Buffalo, your gateway to the spectacular Niagara Falls.

JFK International Airport offers flights to hundreds of destinations around the world, making New York accessible from almost anywhere on the globe. Visit New York City in winter for magical celebrations and upstate New York in fall for stunning foliage.
