From our majestic mountains, cities and lakes to our pastoral farmlands and vineyards, New York State has it all!

So Much to See, So Much to Do!

Sophisticated cities, charming towns, quaint villages, and rural and wilderness settings throughout New York offer a wealth of cultural and recreational opportunities amid some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the world. Along with vast open spaces, lush forests, mountains, rivers and lakes, and hundreds of miles of ocean and coastal beaches, New York has some of the most picturesque and vibrant geography in all of the United States.

Many of the nation's cleanest, safest, most beautiful, and least-stressful cities and towns are located in New York. New Yorkers enjoy culture, museums, golf, professional sports, horse racing, theater and world-class entertainment. Consider New York State for your residence and discover a superior quality of life.

Did you know, for example, that New York has more ski areas than any other state? 

From New York City to Niagara Falls, and from the historic Hudson Valley to the magnificent Adirondack Mountains, New York offers attractions and events to suit every taste. Outdoor parks cover more than one-fifth of the state's land area. At over six million acres, New York’s Adirondack Park is larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier and Olympic Parks combined. It makes up 85 percent of all wilderness land in the eastern United States and has over 6,713 natural ponds, lakes, and reservoirs of one acre or more. In contrast, each year, 1.6 billion people ride the New York subway system, the largest mass transit system in the world with 842 miles of track. That’s five turnstile spins for every man, woman and child in the U.S.
