Upstate New York is a natural treasure. We live and work amid scenic hills, verdant forests, and countless lakes and rivers. Each change of the season imparts a new and inviting view of our landscapes.
One of the best ways to learn about nature is to experience it. Get out and enjoy your world! There is plenty to see and do in Syracuse, and the surrounding region, for any age or preference. The following links suggest opportunities for camping, hiking, boating, hunting, fishing, skiing, and more.
