DESTINATIONS OF NEW YORK STATE 2017-2018


Visit Our Historic Country-Side.

Here in the Sullivan Catskills we once hosted half a million at the 1969 Woodstock festival. Come see the historic site and visit The Museum at Bethel Woods. While you’re here, see an outdoor concert, or a Broadway-style show. Sample our handcrafted beer, spirits and wines. Go tubing down the Delaware. Try your hand at fly fishing in world famous waters. And keep the party going at an all-inclusive resort.

NEW YORK CITY

V

isit the city that never sleeps! The wonders of the “Big Apple” will exceed all of your expectations...the fantastic skyline, famous restaurants, hotels and shops to fit any budget, and miles of museums and attractions. Each of the city’s five boroughs has a unique appeal. You can tour Manhattan by helicopter or on a cruise boat that skirts around its shoreline. In Queens, enjoy thoroughbred horse racing at Belmont Park or Flushing Park, home of the US Open Tennis championship. Brooklyn is home to the Brooklyn Museum and adjacent Botanic Garden. Or America’s favorite pastime, baseball, can be enjoyed at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx or Citi Field in Queens. With all this to see and do, it’s no wonder New York is the most exciting city in the world!
