NIGHTLIFE AND

There is a long and distinguished history surrounding Oneida County as a hotbed for hosting some of the most outstanding names in virtually every style of music. Richard Barrett Editor, Observer Dispatch And fortunately for visitors, many of these outstanding musicians are still working in area clubs, restaurants and theaters. Virtually any night of the week, local establishments offer live musical entertainment in intimate settings that allow guests to see and listen to favorite local performers up close and personal. There are also scores of opportunities

Entertainment

for amateurs to polish their craft and get discovered at open mic nights that showcase up and coming local talent. The Woodland Farm Brewery in Marcy is a popular venue where visitors can experience shows that are likely to surprise and amaze. If it’s jazz that visitors are after, The Savoy in Rome features outstanding keyboardist Rick Montalbano every Friday night, drawing enthusiastic crowds who remember him from his days touring with the likes of Lou Rawls and Aretha Franklin. Montalbano also teams up with jazz guitar virtuoso Carmine Caramanica for frequent jam sessions at Tiny’s Bar and Grill in Utica, and seeing these performers work their musical magic is a once in a lifetime experience that shouldn’t be missed. For those who might enjoy catch-

ing some rare live folk music, The Celtic Harp on Varick Street in Utica’s Brewery District presents the opportunity to hear authentic Irish music that’s sure to get patrons raising their glasses and singing along in joyful appreciation. The newlyopened Irish Cultural Center, located nearby, will also be featuring live music in a genuine Irish pub that was actually built in Ireland and shipped to the states. Guests will greatly appreciate immersing themselves in Irish culture and having an experience every bit as real as they would by visiting the Emerald Isle. Whatever style visitors might be interested in -- rock and roll, reggae, country, heavy metal, it’s all right here for those who take the time to get out there and enjoy it.

If a weekend immersed in history is your ideal getaway, Oneida County is the perfect destination. Located at the convergence of many important travel routes, an extraordinarily diverse amount of significant history happened here. In Rome, visitors can tour Fort Stanwix National Monument. Known as “the fort that never surrendered” for successfully thwarting an intense siege in 1777, Stanwix was built to protect traders during the French and Indian War and was also used during the Revolutionary War. Just six miles away at the Oriskany Battlefield, explore the site of one of the Revolutionary War’s most deadly battles. Considered by many to be a critical turning point in the War, hundreds of brave soldiers lost their lives in Oriskany, fighting for American independence. In Sherrill, the Oneida Community Mansion House offers an intriguing tour that lends insight into a mysterious

Take a relaxing cruise aboard Erie Canal Cruises for a historic narration of this iconic National Heritage Corridor and National Landmark. Interested in the history of American sports? Check out the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown or the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota. Be sure to visit the Baron Von Steuben Memorial State Historic Site, see astounding bygone architecture and decorative arts at Fountain Elms, learn about the Oneida Indian Nation at Shako:wi Cultural Center, and explore a long list of historic sites just waiting to

PAT H T H R O U G H H I S T O R Y HAUNTED HISTORY TRAIL

Do You Believe

Itinerary

Explore the trail to hear Central New York’s bone chilling history and meet ghosts from the past.

Do you believe in the paranormal? Whether you’re a true believer in ghosts or a die-hard skeptic, visit any of the spooky sites on the Haunted History Trail of New York State to test your beliefs. Stay at a haunted inn, join an investigative team on a ghost hunt, or go on a candlelit tour of a haunted building. For more hauntings visit HauntedHistoryTrail.com.

Haunted Sites CAPITOL THEATRE, 220 W DOMINICK STREET, ROME One of the most interesting and stylish haunts in Central NY is the depression-era Capitol Theatre. Built in 1927, this art-deco theatre seats 2,500 and boasts a Moller Organ in the orchestra pit. Paranormal occurrences date back more than 30 years. Witnesses have reported a shadow figure of a man, organ music (despite the lack of a working organ until 2003), whispered conversations, opening doors, and even the sounds of an ongoing show late at night.

SHOPPES AT THE FINISH LINE, 800 COURT STREET, UTICA

UNION STATION, 321 MAIN STREET, UTICA Union Station, built in 1814, is long reported to be haunted with the numerous accidental deaths that occurred along the railways. Today, it is common for people to report witnessing ‘ghost lights’ moving along the tracks at the station, phantom passengers riding in the cars, ghostly conductors pacing the platforms and the haunting sounds of tragedy echoing through the station in the late night hours.

FOR LOCAL INVESTIGATIONS AND EVENTS CHECK OUT: CASPERCOPS.COM NYSHADOWCHASERS.COM LAMPLIGHTTOURS.COM

Ground was broken in April 1847 for what was originally known as The Utica Globe Mill. In 1871 a fire destroyed the entire mill. Larger and improved buildings were completed in 1873. Mill operations ceased in 1916. Today, the Utica Globe Mill is known as The Shoppes At The Finish Line & Utica Brews and while the industrial history may have been left behind it is still present not only in the architecture but the haunting activity that continues. Many investigations of the Mill have led to countless paranormal experiences and even the capture of disembodied voices. TheGetawayRegion.com

Do you love to Fish for anything? From eight-inch bluegills to fat walleyes to big, muscular carp to relentlessly combative smallmouth bass? What about trout? How about fly fishJohn Pitarresi Editor, Observer Dispatch ing for trout? For many anglers, it’s way more than a hobby. It’s more like a lifestyle, and there are plenty of opportunities to live it right here in Oneida County. We have more than 100 miles of public fishing rights on trout creeks and rivers in the county, and hundreds more that run through state lands or are ac-

cessible by landowner permission. Oriskany Creek is one favorite destination. It is easily accessed, and it is terrific, with many wild fish in the upstream areas, including occasional brook trout, and some bruisers in its last few miles as it flows toward the Mohawk River. West Canada Creek has an even bigger reputation, and for good reason – it offers the real possibility of a 20-inch brown on any trip. It has been regarded as one of New York’s top trout streams just about forever, and it’s been even better since the DEC began stocking two-year-old fish more than 20 years ago. A good day on the West Canada, with big fish rising to steadily hatching mayflies, might not match what you might find on the famous streams out West or on the fabled rivers of the Catskills, but close enough. And sometimes it is better!

There are many other choices: Sconondoa Creek, Sauquoit Creek, the upper Mohawk River, the east and west branches of Fish Creek, and many others with low-key reputations or none at all that offer high-end experiences. You can find plenty of places to throw popping bugs for panfish and bass, too. Not a fly fisherman? That’s no problem. There are innumerable waters where you can fish with bait or lures for almost any species with great success. Oneida Lake and Lake Delta are terrific walleye and bass fisheries, and the Mohawk River and Barge Canal offer a wide variety of species, including occasional northern pike of impressive dimensions. If you love to fish, Oneida County is a great bet, no matter what you are after.

Massive crowds, thousands of runners, live music, and a post race party like no other, make it quite unlike any race you have ever done. While the Boilermaker is the event that anchors the entire running calendar, there are numerous running, walking and riding events to participate in throughout the year. From America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk in March to Cycle the Erie in July and the Falling Leaves Road Race in September, your new challenge can be found here!

Winter

Get Away to Winter Adventure Central New York is a four season recreational destination, with plenty of SNOW for those that love to downhill ski, cross-country ski, snowshoe, Jim Rolf ice fish and Trail Coordinator NYS Snowmobile Association snowmobile. Oneida County is home to 12 snowmobile clubs, accounting for the highest number of club members cumulatively across New York State. These all-volunteer crews maintain over 550 miles of trails as well as many more miles of community-connector trails. Our high rate of membership is driven by the fact our local clubs provide some of the best snowmobile trails in NYS and the fact that a large portion of the County receives significant

amounts of snowfall each year. From the hills in the South, with Tassel Hill at 1940’ above sea level; to Oneida Lake; to the northeastern gateway of the Adirondack Park and to the northwestern trails connecting to the world-renown Tug Hill Region…the Oneida County trail system is a premier snowmobiling destination with family friendly amenities located on or near the trails. Winter sports opportunities are endless in Oneida County. The Utica Comets, AHL pro hockey team, play on home ice at the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium to thousands of cheering hockey fans each season. The Utica Curling Club dates back to 1868, and with six sheets of BRIAN LACROCE ice, it’s the oldest and

Golf

ONEIDA COUNTY IS HOME TO 28 GOLF COURSES WITHIN 28 MINUTES.

With 28 courses within 28 minutes, golfers can immerse themselves in an entire vacation of course exploration. Valley View course in Utica was designed by the famous Robert Trent Jones Sr., whose design philosophy was “a golf hole should be a hard par and an easy bogey.” Rome Country Club’s beautiful course is completely irrigated (roughs, too!) and is rated four stars by Golf Digest. Turning Stone Casino Resort has five spectacular courses, three of which are PGA-level, 18-hole championship courses. Atunyote and Kaluhyat were each honored on Golf Digest’s prestigious America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses list for 2015-2017. Those looking for a more relaxed game will enjoy Pleasant Knolls, a player-friendly recreational course offering 9 holes of par 36 golf. Golfers in a hurry

will appreciate Sandstone Hollow. Designed by legendary course architect Rick Smith, with the busy golfer in mind, the Hollow ranks among the top 25 par 3 courses in the United States.
