10 Upstate Fall Escapes

It’s no secret that we LOVE fall in Upstate N.Y. – the air is crisp, the sun is shining and the changing leaves breathe new life into the landscape. It’s the perfect weather to be outside. We have put together 10 different ways to experience this great season in places you may not have ventured before. From winding roads covered in a canopy of leaves to hikes with scenery that will leave you breathless to a ride in an antique speedboat and everything in between, this list isn’t just cider mills and donuts (although, we do that too). So pick a trip and a nice day and experience the incredible natural beauty that Upstate has to offer – and leave us a note and let us know how you liked it. Happy Fall!
