Vacation Planner

Including GREAT GOLF

Throughout New York


Been working on my long drives in the Sullivan Catskills. It’s been all golf all the time on these championship courses. The views are outstanding. Lessons with the pros are making a big difference in my short game. One day I’ll get that hole in one. But now, I’m hitting the 19 th hole for some craft beverages.So Unexpected. #sullivancatskills #adventure 1.800.882.CATS

New York State Famous for making a lasting impression. Whether you’re discovering the Hudson Valley’s magnificent mansions, historic lighthouses on Long Island or the awe-inspiring falls at Niagara; whether you’re diving for treasures in the clear waters of the St. Lawrence, fly fishing in a Catskills river, studying grapes at an award-winning Finger Lakes winery, exploring world famous sites in New York City, visiting the capital city of Albany or the charming town of Saratoga, enjoying the solitude of the Adirondacks, discovering fascinating historical attractions in Central New York or listening to an inspirational speaker at Chautauqua Institution, you’ll know you’re part of something special. No matter the whim, no matter the season, you’ll always find another reason to say, “I Love New York!” St. Law rence River
