Local Events and Attractions

The breathtaking Leatherstocking Region of Upstate NY was named for the unique leather leggings worn by frontiersmen and made famous by the work of author James Fenimore Cooper.  Located just south of the Adirondacks in the central section of the state, the region is rich in history and tradition.

This area is bursting with Museums, performing arts centers, reconstructed villages, farmsteads, Animal Adventure Park home of April the Giraffe, folk art treasures and geological wonders. Along country roads are havens for craft-lovers and antique-hunters from near and far.  This region is the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Fenimore House and The Farmers' Museum, as well as numerous farmer markets, specialty shops and charming restaurants.
