Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you're a visitor or a local looking for something different, let this first edition of Upstate New York Off the Beaten Path show you the Empire State you never knew existed. Get a breathtaking view of the Hudson on the world's longest and highest walkway bridge. Go back in time at Fort Ticonderoga or Old Fort Niagara. Give a toast to the Finger Lakes, one of America's premier wine regions. Get away from it all in the Catskills, the Adirondacks, or Allegheny State Park. So if you've "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
