New York State - United States

State parksNew York has many state parks and two major forest preserves. Adirondack Park, roughly the size of the state of Vermont and the largest state park in the United States, was established in 1892 and given state constitutional protection in 1894. The thinking that led to the creation of the Park first appeared in George Perkins Marsh's Man and Nature, published in 1864. Marsh argued that deforestation could lead to desertification; referring to the clearing of once-lush lands surrounding the Mediterranean, he asserted "the operation of causes set in action by man has brought the face

what is the tourist attractions of New York state?

Michele K :
"buffalo-has the best wings and shopping is good lake placid-sight seeing new york city-the empire state building,the statue of liberty shopping bright lights and very fun :)"
kelsey :
"The Finger Lakes are gorgeous for outdoorsy things. Lots of wineries there, too, if you're a fan of wine tours. Watkins Glen has an amazing gorge that's been made into a really lovely park. If you're into history, the Erie Canal has plenty of touristy opportunities associated, whether you want to boat it or are curious about its history, which you can learn about at a museum in Syracuse. If you like photography, the George Eastman House in Rochester has an excellent gallery with often really great exhibits, though you ought to check out what's on display before you go to make sure it's something you're into. If you DO go to either Rochester or Syracuse, check out the Dinosaur BBQ (there's a location in each city)-- amazing food, amazing atmosphere. Very unique. If you want some great shopping outside of NYC, Woodbury Commons Outlet Mall in Central Valley, NY, which is near the Hudson downstate off of I-87, really can't be beat. Really, bottomline is that NYS is really quite big and has an enormous amount to offer. Are you thinking about any particular regions you'd like to visit?"
saimhain :
"hahaha! i've never seen woodbury referred to as "downstate". anyway, yeah they have awesome shopping, largest outlet in the US i think... i can tell you stuff for the hudson valley, that's where i'm from: world's largest kaleidescope is in Mt tremper, in ulster county sugarloaf is an arts and craft community in orange county. orange county also has the US's oldest winery, brotherhood winery, they gives tours and stuff storm king art center is on the husdon, as is west point military academy that's all i can think of off the top of my head"
