Vacations, weekend getaways and day trips – New York State has attractions to suit every interest. The Empire State boasts 70,000 miles of waterways, 52 ski areas, 986 golf courses, the largest park south of Alaska, 10,000 miles of scenic byways, 500 historic sites, 10,000 museums…and one awesome Erie Canalway Trail.
That’s why PTNY joined our partners at Canal New York, the NYS Canal Corporation and I Love New York at a booth at the New York Times Travel Show last month. More than 40,000 travel enthusiasts attend the popular show and we wanted to make sure as many of them as possible found out about the Erie Canalway Trail and what a great destination it is for a bicycling vacation.
Interest in bicycling, our Cycle the Erie Canal annual bike tour ,and our soon-to-be-launched Cycle the Erie Canal website was high amongst attendees and we expect we’ll see some new faces on the Trail this summer from the show.
