The Greater Niagara region serves up a deliciously diverse range of New York State experiences year round. From scenic ports dotting the historic Erie Canal to the wonder of Niagara Falls, the splendor of the Great Lakes to the breathtaking vistas of Letchworth State Park – the area is rich in natural resources and culinary surprises. The Empire State’s westernmost jewel offers a bounty of gastronomic and agricultural attractions with working farms where you can pick-your-own as well as sophisticated restaurants with inventive chefs offering expertly prepared locally sourced food, wine, beer and cider. Our microclimate is ideal for growing some of the most scrumptious produce in the country, including the grapes that supply New York’s ever-expanding Niagara Wine Trail. Each of Greater Niagara’s five counties – Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming – delight visitors with their unique brand of hospitality and a multitude of diverse destinations to round out your stay. Arts and architecture in Buffalo; the breathtaking wonder of Niagara Falls; Letchworth’s “Grand Canyon of the East” in Wyoming; the charm of the historic Erie Canal in Orleans; and the vast Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in Genesee. Amusement parks and symphonic halls; notable malls and locally owned boutiques; vintage drive-ins and modern multi-screen movie houses; internationally recognized museums and artist-owned galleries – there’s no end to the entertainment options for every taste. Let’s not forget world-class fishing, boating, skiing, and biking for active travelers, and professional hockey, football and baseball for avid sports fans.

So whether you prefer a country inn or a downtown hotel, a cottage on Lake Erie or a B&B on Lake Ontario, your vacation appetite will be satisfied in Greater Niagara!
